SEAT is one of the younger car manufacturers. It has a colourful past, and is known for producing quirky cars that break from convention. Here we will take a look at how they came into existence, and what the future holds for them.
SEAT was founded by the Instituto Nacional de Industria, which was a state owned industrial company. SEAT under it’s current name was founded in 1950, after plans made in 1940 were dropped, as the Spanish country was still too devastated by civil war. The founding company and the banks that backed it signed an alliance with Fiat to help them develop the technology to get the manufacturer off the ground.
SEAT current concept car is known as the IBL. It is a departure from the smaller seats of the past, and is firmly planted in the luxury saloon category. Whilst not knowing how it drives, its sweeping lines and innovative lighting arrangement certainly create an impression.
Interesting SEAT fact - SEAT must be in the minority of car manufacturers that own their own rail link. They have a rail link from their factory to the port in Barcelona. This cuts congestion and greenhouse gasses in the area, and allows SEAT direct access to the Port. In the year it was unveiled it received an award for the best logistics idea of 2007.
