The Seat IBX concept is an urban sports utility vehicle which features the same exterior design theme as the Seat IBE and IBE Paris concepts from 2010.

The IBX is designed to compete in Europe's compact SUV market against a variety of established competitors. James Muir, President of SEAT said of the concept: "With the IBX, we are once again demonstrating just how intensively we are working on the renewal of the SEAT brand, and how determined we are to develop for the future. The IBX represents the values of the SEAT brand perfectly - with its unique design, its youthful energy and its outstanding sustainability as a result of its hybrid drive concept. Even though a decision has yet to be taken, we could certainly envisage the IBX as a future expansion of our product portfolio."

The Seat IBX features full LED headlights which are shaped in a distinctive angular manner. The rest of the IBX's exterior design echoes this sharp, angular motif. The wheel arches, grilles and taillights all display crisp angles and razor-sharp lines.

Powering the IBX is a hybrid drivetrain. The electric motor can provide the energy for 28 miles (45 kilometers) of zero-emission motoring. After that the internal combustion engine kicks in to top up the batteries and extend the range indefinatley - provided you keep putting in fuel!

Possible engine choices for the Seat IBX are the direct injection TDI and TSI engines from the current SEAT line-up. In its base configuration, the IBX is set up for front wheel drive. However, a 4WD system could be an option for enhanced versatility and off-road potential.

The designers involved in the creation of the Seat IBX concept included Manuel Diaz, Luc Donckerwolke, Chris Axe and Daniel Garcia.
