The Seat IBX Concept that was shown at this year’s Geneva show has been green lighted for production, according to a report by Spanish newspaper ABC. The IBX will be built in Martorell, Spain, alongside platform sibling Audi Q3.
The IBX Concept that was shown in March was a two-door concept, but the production model is likely to be a a five-door version to compete with mainstream compact urban crossover/SUV models. According to the report, the IBX would debut sometime in 2014.
Despite less than stellar contribution to the cause, it looks like the Volkswagen Group isn’t giving up on its Spanish brand yet. Seat also recently revealed the Mii city car, its version of the Volkswagen Up!, which will start selling in Spain late this year.
