This transformation is planned to start in 2025. SEAT Components will produce five components (differential, pivot bearing, battery E-Box, KMM – a battery cooling module - and the aluminum for the engine of the electric car), which represents a major boost in the reconversion of this center towards the production of electric vehicle components.
