The Ibiza ECOMOTIVE, the most fuel-efficient vehicle in the Eco Tour 2008

The Seat Ibiza ECOMOTIVE achieved a major triumph in the 10th Eco Tour, a tough, fuel-efficient challenge driving cross-Europe that took place between 13th and 19th September. The Spanish brand’s vehicle not only finished first place in the “small diesel” class but was also the overall winner with average fuel consumption of 3.8l / 100km.

A total of 42 teams from 14 different countries – including participants from Spain, Germany, the Netherlands and Italy – took part in the Eco Tour 2008. The event aims to demonstrate the advantages of fuel-efficient driving, which in addition to reducing fuel costs also has less of an environmental impact.

The 20 participating vehicles were divided into six categories: “small vehicles”, “compact vehicles” and “family vehicles” with diesel and petrol engines. The teams switched cars within their category every day and covered distances of up to 400km a day. From the start in Barcelona, the route took participants through cities such as Avignon, Lyon, Geneva, Como, Stuttgart, Luxembourg and Brussels to the finish in The Hague.

The Ibiza ECOMOTIVE’s performance was superb, obtaining a worthy victory and demonstrating SEAT’s commitment to environmental sustainability and its influence when manufacturing economical vehicles that achieve great performances.

In line with this commitment, SEAT will present the ECOMOTIVE version of the new SEAT Ibiza at the next Paris Motor Show.
