Back to Overview


The Sociedad Española de Automóviles de Turismo, S.A. is founded with one aim: get Spain moving.


Our first SEAT factory opens its doors in Barcelona’s Zona Franca District. 925 employees. One model: the SEAT 1400.


Moving forward fast. With 10,000 cars produced in one year, we continue to reach new milestones.


The SEAT 600 is here to smash the status quo, becoming a Spanish symbol of mobility and freedom.
