CUPRA* sales are also making strong progress, with triple digit growth. In the first two months of 2019, CUPRA delivered 3,600 cars, which is 101.4% more than in the same period last year (*note: result integrated in SEAT’s total sales figure).

SEAT Vice-president for Sales and Marketing and CUPRA CEO Wayne Griffiths pointed out that “starting tomorrow we’re going to display the company’s future at the Geneva Motor Show through concept cars such as the SEAT el-Born and the CUPRA Formentor, which will be included in our model lineup. We’re still working on the future with the satisfaction of achieving excellent results in the present and breaking records month after month.”
