Seat has unveiled their first electric vehicle, the Altea XL Electric Ecomotive prototype.

Developed for fleet use, the model has an electric motor that produces 115 PS (85 kW / 114 hp) and 270 Nm (199 lb-ft) of torque. This enables the car to hit a top speed of 135 km/h (84 mph) and travel up to 135 km (84 miles) on a single charge.

It, along with the previously unveiled Leon TwinDrive Ecomotive prototype, will be made available to government institutions - in Catalonia and Madrid - in the coming months.

As part of the announcement, Seat also confirmed plans to launch a production plug-in hybrid in 2015. It will be followed by an electric vehicle a year later.
