Being so reliant on European markets - specifically Spain, Germany and the UK - SEAT has been hard hit by Covid-19. Production at the company's Martorell base fell by almost a third last year and for various reasons the record half a million cars produced in 2019 is unlikely to be broken in 2021. Still, the brand's line-up is fresh, Cupra as a high-margin spin-off is working and the future vehicles cupboard is the very opposite of bare.
