Ssangyong e-XIV EV Concept at Paris 2012Mon, 10 Sep 2012 00:00:00 -0700
Ssangyong are continuing their concept offensive with the e-XIV EV Concept, a range extender compact SUV.
Mahindra seem intent on turning Ssangyong from the Lada of Korea in to another South Korean car maker to be taken seriously.
We’ve recently seen a big push for the Korando SX, with Ssangyong pitching it hard against the competition as the cheapest way in to a compact SUV, and at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year we had a concept pointing to the next generation compact SUV from Ssangyong with the convertible Ssangyong XIV-2.
Now Ssangyong are going green with an electric version of the XIV-2 – snappily dubbed the e-XIV – lining up to debut at the Paris Motor SHow later this month.
Ssangyong has not exactly gone overboard with details on the e-XIV EV Concept save to tell us it’s not a BEV but a range extender with a small petrol engine.
Which all points to a new compact SUV on the horizon from Ssangyong with a choice of standard SUV, convertible and this new range-extender electric e-XIV.
We’ll probably know more when the Ssangyong e-XIV EV land in Paris.
