Two minute insider view of Leon ST production

Seat has released a new video that condenses the entire build time of a new Leon ST into just a couple of minutes.

Filmed using GoPro cameras placed right at the heart of the Martorell production lines, the video gives a unique perspective into the car manufacturing journey from beginning to end.

Martorell currently produces ten models on four different platforms, built by 10,000 employees and over 2,800 robots, at a rate of 2,000 cars per day.

A Leon ST comprises 5,900 separate parts and 1,580 metres of cable, and takes 19 hours to build from scratch. 

The company's Martorell facility, which celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2013, is one of the most modern and environmentally efficient car manufacturing plants in the world; the factory has recently concluded the Seat al Sol project, which has seen the biggest installation of solar panels in the automotive industry, saving thousands of tonnes of CO2 per year.
