Eco-friendly vehicles were a big part of the Paris Motor Show this year, and Spain’s SEAT used the show to introduce the new Ibiza Ecomotive.

The new car features an impressive combined fuel economy rating of 76.3 mpg and CO2 emissions of 98 g/km, the lowest amount in its segment. Power is provided by a 1.4 TDI engine which produces 80 PS.

Updated engine software, revised gear ratios, and low rolling resistance tires were all critical in getting the impressive green credentials for the Ibiza. Even aerodynamics were also taken into consideration when engineers began working on the new model, as the ecomotive features a redesigned front grille and a new spoiler in order to reduce drag and improve fuel efficiency. Other changes include new seat upholstery, body color door handles and mirrors, and double parabolic headlights.

The new Ibiza Ecomotive will be offered in both five door and SportCoupe, and reach the UK during the first half of next year.
