SEAT Ibiza Ecomotive sets new economy record

The super-frugal SEAT Ibiza Ecomotive has once again proved its green credentials by clocking up astonishing average fuel economy of more than 120 miles to the gallon on a mammoth 1,186-mile tour of 12 European countries.

Austrian economy driving specialist Gerhard Plattner set the new record of 120.4 mpg at the wheel of the fuel-sipping Spanish supermini. 

He drove through the cities of Mosty (Czech Republic), Bratislava (Slovakia), Hegyeshalom (Hungary), Graz (Austria), Varazdin (Croatia), Maribor (Slovenia), Toblach (Italy), Innsbruck (Austria), Schaan (Principality of Liechtenstein), Zurich (Switzerland) and Saint-Louis (France) to finish off in Frankfurt (Germany).  When Gerhard switched off the Ibiza Ecomotive’s engine for the last time, the seal on the fuel tank was still intact and the SEAT’s new economy record for its segment was certified.

Optimised aerodynamics, weight reduction and modifications to the 80 PS 1.4 TDI engine’s electronic management have delivered one of the cleanest cars on the market today.
