Seat, S.A. or to give it its full name – Sociedad Espanola de Automotives de Turismo (roughly translated as Spanish Society of Automotive Tourism) is a Spanish car manufacturer. Headquartered in Martorell, Spain, Seat was founded in 1950.
Seat is currently wholly owned by the Volkswagen Group, and is aimed at the young market, portraying a sporty and youthful image. There are definite visual similarities between modern Seats and Audi cars, both being owned by VW.
As of 2011, over 16 million cars have been produce by Seat, with more than 6 million of them coming from their Martorell factory, near Barcelona. Around 25% of Seas are sold in the domestic Spanish market, with the remaining three quarters being sold in over 70 countries worldwide.
Spain is one of the largest car manufacturing nations (8th) and this makes it one of the biggest in Europe (2nd) – with the UK currently being ranked 14th and 4th respectively. However this was not the case until Seat came along. In the early to mid twentieth century, the Spanish economy was not as advanced as the northern European nations, and so it was not capable of sustaining such a trade. Spain’s limited domestic market during this period was largely served by foreign brands. The demand for cars collapsed following the Spanish Civil War (1936-39) too – and so it was not until after the Second World War that Spain looked to stabilise and grow its economy. The state run Seat, formed in 1950 was intended as a show of Spain’s ambition in the global markets. Spain decided it needed external help, and so companies were invited to pitch for the business – to work in partnership to bring the Seat brand to life. Fiat and VW were the two companies that reached the latter bidding stages, with Fiat winning the bid due to it already having a presence in Spain (among other reasons). The brand would go on to serve as Spain’s largest employer and help to industrialise the largely rural Spanish economy.
Fiat continued to partner with Seat until a dispute in the early 80’s saw irrevocable damage done to the relationship, and Fiat withdrew in 1983. This opened the door for a new partner – interestingly enough, Volkswagen were still interested and so set about creating a union between the two firms.
Through the shared design principles and solid engineering of VW, Seat went on to have a very successful period in the 90’s and 2000’s. Cars such as the Leon and the Ibiza proving smash hits across Europe.
Seat have had a good measure of success in rallying and touring cars in the European arena, with the Ibiza winning the 2L World Rally Championship 3 times in ’96, ’97 and ’98 and the Seat Leon winning the World Touring Car Championship twice in 2008 and 2009.
