SsangYong says 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. 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.
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 per cent in 50 minutes, with a maximum speed of 150km/h (about 80 mph) and a range of up to 450km (about 280 miles).
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.
