It is indeed. A 2005 Seat Ibiza.

Thread revival!

Recently family brought this. If you live in the UK or Japan this is likely a very common car for you. However since I live in Canada, I believe as of February 2018 I own one of ~170 in the entire country thus far, and as of today I still have not run into another one as of yet.



Brilliant vehicle - comfortable, pulls like a diesel (again Canada - our market does NOT have the 2.2 DI-D), serenely quiet and with father's 52km round trip, only ~6.5L/100km under Canadian freezing temperatures. Last Saturday we were hit with a major snowstorm and the car just breezed through it. No wonder 50% of UK plug-ins on the road is this vehicle.

Oh, we do have those... I just haven't seen that body style before... I don't go to the car shows as often as I used to to keep up on the updated models anymore.

Yes. In fact we used to own a gen 2 Outlander V6. Great power, practicality & reliability, but abysmal fuel economy. This one is the PHEV version, and the under the me-too SUV body lies a powertrain setup with 3 electric motor/generators, a big HV battery + a 2.0L gasoline engine in a combination which makes even the Prius look ordinary.

Today I did an errand run using the car fully charged from home, picked up two packages at two separate locations, ate lunch at Ikea + top up & back home. A 55km trip...with ZERO gasoline used. Remember this is a 1900kg SUV, with AWD and costs 1/4 price of a Model X. A remarkable vehicle.

A lot of companies seem to be going the way of the PHEV... I suppose it might be cheaper to go that way rather than the traditional hybrid system...

it's a good alternative to a pure EV where the infrastructure doesn't exist for keeping them charge.
