Seat bets on the methane
Seat is preparing for the future by announcing the introduction, by 2020, of technologies and solutions such as mild hybrids, hybrid plug-ins and all-electric cars.
"But it is important to remember that methane is nowadays a valid and important alternative for achieving the objectives linked to the decrease in CO2 levels".
These are the words of Pierantonio Vianello, Director of Seat in Italy, during a round table at the Italian Energy Summit of the Sole 24 ORE, held in Milan. Vianello stressed that methane is a real option, and one of the most sustainable solutions for mobility, as it is an existing technology that does not require further investments.
For this reason it has all the necessary requirements to become a valid alternative to electrification or other technological solutions for power supply.
"Is there any other technology on the market capable of combining all these elements? I believe that at the moment there are none" concluded Vianello, also underlining that a global assessment of available technologies is not just a matter of engine development.
