Seat's global sales grew in the first quarter of 2018 to reach the highest volume in the 68-year history of the brand, with 139,200 vehicles delivered. Sales rose sharply by 18.7 percent from January to March, breaking the first quarter record of the year 2000 (136,200).

The brand also set another record in March, with the highest sales figure in a single month. In March, the carmaker sold 60,400 vehicles, which is 13.4 percent more than in 2017, and for the first time broke the barrier of 60,000 car deliveries in one month. The previous record dates back to March of 2000 (56,200 units).

The historic sales volume reached in the first quarter of 2018 is the result of launching the Ateca, the Arona, the Ibiza and the Leon in the last two years. Seat is now preparing to add one new model to its range every six months between 2018 and 2020. The first two will be the Seat Tarraco and the Cupra Ateca, which are going on sale at the end of this year.
