Seat has announced its seven-seat Tarraco SUV will be available as a plug-in hybrid. The new addition will make its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show, ahead of launching in 2020.

Read the review: Seat Tarraco

Featuring a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine producing 148bhp and a 113bhp electric motor powered by a 13kWh battery pack, it makes a combined output of 242bhp which provides a 0-62mph time of 7.4 seconds.

That makes it the quickest Tarraco in the line-up, while also being capable of driving up to 30 miles on electric power alone. That brings average CO2 emissions to less than 50g/km, making it an excellent choice for company car drivers.

We’ll find out more about the Tarraco PHEV’s specification at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The Spanish brand also announced its Tarraco will get the FR treatment – just like the Ibiza, Leon and Ateca models.

Expect an FR-specific body kit to feature, with flared wheel arches, beefier bumpers, a rear spoiler and a set of fresh 19in alloy wheels. 20in alloys will be available as an option, while a new Fura Grey colour (pictured here) is available for the very first time.

As well as these changes, at the front, the FR grille proudly houses the SEAT badge; at the back, the car-wide rear light highlights the FR look and the all-body painted exterior emphasises its dynamism. The sportier expression of the Tarraco FR is its name, now embossed in handwriting.

Inside, there’s electric sports bucket seats with memory function up front, which combine a sporty neoprene-style material and leather upholstery. Aluminium sports pedals and a sports steering wheel have also been added.

We’ll bring you more info on the Tarraco PHEV as soon as it is revealed.
