Five SEAT concept cars that shaped the future

Concept cars are generally described as design exercises that help with future street models. They are a perfect opportunity for designers to let their imagination run free and sketch the silhouettes of cars to come. There is some truth to this, as concept cars do show what future street models will look like. SEAT's historic concept cars have paved the way in the areas of electric and connected vehicles and the rise of SEAT's SUV family. The following five SEAT creations are evidence of this.
