SsangYong will showcase its e-SIV concept at the Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland on Tuesday March 6th alongside the European launch of its all-new Musso pick-up truck. The new Musso Pickup is based on the same architecture as the new Rexton which has already been awarded 4x4 of the Year 2018 and will be keenly priced to compete in the expanding pick-up market.

The e-SIV is a strategic model for the brand, and illustrates its approach towards future electric vehicles, connectivity and autonomous driving. "E-SIV - which stands for Electronic Smart Interface Vehicle, has been developed to demonstrate SsangYong’s determined approach towards creating a connected mobility solution along with autonomous driving.<br><br>The company recognises that change in future mobility will only result from positive consumer interest, engagement and experience, and the e-SIV will be central in helping to shape the next-generation of SsangYong SUVs and EVs.

With a compact, balanced and dynamic design to create a sporty looking car for the future, the e-SIV is based on the design selected for SsangYong’s next generation C-segment SUV. The car is powered by a 140kW motor and features fast charging of up to 80% in 50 minutes, with a maximum speed of 150km/h and a range of up to 450km. 4,460mm in length and with a 2,675mm wheelbase, e-SIV is 1,870mm wide and 1,630mm high.

This is the company’s fifth electric car concept to be exhibited. Previous models include KEV1 in 2010, KEV2 (2011), e-XIV (2012), and Tivoli EV-R shown at Geneva in 2015.
