Martorell, Spain — An electric car accompanies the Olympic flame on its last stretch towards the opening ceremony. We are at the Barcelona 92 Olympics. Thus, the vehicle could not be any other than a SEAT, an electric SEAT Toledo.

2020 is not an Olympic year, but it is still SEAT’s 70th Anniversary. Enough years to create history and countless peculiar and unique like that Toledo, the first electric SEAT. It had 16 lead batteries that increased the car weight from 1.015 to 1.545 kilos but allowed 55 km to travel in urban cycle use. It was enough range for the electric SEAT Toledo to also make way for the athletes during the marathon race on the final day of the Olympics.

The SEAT Toledo was not only the official car of those Olympic Games, but it was “The car of the champions.” Each of the 22 Spanish medalists received a private vehicle, developed for them, the SEAT Toledo Podium. A Toledo recognizable by its two-tone grey paint, and with an interior finish of the maximum luxury at the time. It even had fax and phone between the seats, an entirely cream-colored interior with leather upholstery and wooden inserts on the dashboard and doors.

SEAT, S.A. is a Spanish automobile manufacturer with its head office in Martorell, Spain. It was founded in 1950. It is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group of Germany.
