The new generation SEAT Ibiza Ecomotive has once again asserted its status as one of the most environmentally-sensitive cars in its segment by covering a staggering 970 miles (1,562 km) on a single tank of fuel, resulting in an average consumption figure of 97.4 mpg. This incredible feat was undertaken by Austrian Gerhard Plattner, an internationally renowned economy-driving champion.

A smiling Plattner said: ‘Setting this record has been incredible. Without a doubt, it has been the most spectacular fuel-saving challenge this year. The pouring rain practically all through the night made driving difficult, but the Ibiza Ecomotive performed to perfection.’
The SEAT Ibiza Ecomotive is the leading car in its segment in terms of sustainability and the Spanish brand’s most ecological car, thanks to its low fuel consumption figure of only 76.3 mpg (combined cycle) and CO2 emissions of 98 g/km.
Optimised streamlining, weight reduction and modifications to the 80 PS 1.4 TDI engine’s electronic management have given rise to one of the cleanest cars on the market today. In addition, it is the only model equipped with air conditioning and a five-door body option with such a low emissions level.
