SsangYong has offered a preview of its plans for the electric vehicle segment, in the form of the KEV2 Concept unveiled at the Seoul Motor Show this week.

Based on the company's new Korando SUV, the KEV2 does away with the regular model's grille, adding sharp hook-like LED headlights and a unique body kit.

Power for the KEV2 is provided by a 120kW electric motor and a 35kWh lithium-ion battery pack, giving the concept a driving range of around 180km and a top speed of 150km/h.

SsangYong says the KEV2's battery park can be fully recharged in as little as 30 minutes using a specialised rapid-charging outlet, or around eight to 10 hours with a conventional home power outlet.

The concept's interior has not been revealed, but SsangYong describes a centre console that features a removable tablet computer, providing details and controls for the EV's features.

The unveiling of the KEV2 follows the SUT 1 concept shown at the Geneva Auto Show, which is expected to replace the current Actyon Sports ute in the coming year.
