Local SsangYong distributor, Ateco, has confirmed that the brand has been paused in Australia until further notice.

The distributor is working with SsangYong to develop better pricing strategies for the Australian market, but until such time, Ateco has deemed it best to wait.

And the brand has already felt the effects of the move, with stocks of the Actyon Sports pickup having sold out.

With limited supply, SsangYong sales were down almost 73 percent last month for the year-to-date compared with the same period in 2016.

Just 16 SsangYongs found homes in February, including nine Korandos, three Rextons and four Stavic people movers.

For the same month in 2016, 59 SsangYongs were chalked up as sales including 27 Korandos.

Ateco says there is currently no timeframe for SsangYong’s reintroduction into the Australian market, and Ateco is not aware of any attempts by SsangYong to relaunch under their own banner.

The local distributor would consider the SsangYong Tivoli SUV as a new addition to the range once pricing strategies have been sorted, but only if it presented a sound business case.

Currently on display at the Geneva Motor Show is the SsangYong XAVL concept, which likely previews a new midsized seven-seater SUV model.

If and when SsangYong returns to Australia, no doubt the XVAL would be on the local radar as well.
