SsangYong, the South Korean SUV and Ute builder, used the 2018 Geneva motor show to debut a radically different model.

Sitting alongside the Musso dual-cab ute and Tivoli SUV was the e-SIV, an electric and autonomous urban-friendly SUV concept. While it is the brand’s fifth electric-powered concept, the company says this latest example showcases its “determined approach towards creating a connected mobility solution along with autonomous driving.”

However, the company says it is only Level 2 autonomous capable, which means it can maintain a distance from the car ahead. The company says further sensors are needed to take it to Level 3 autonomy.

The electric powertrain features a 140kW motor and a range of 450km.

But beyond the technology it also showcases the brand’s new design language for its next generation compact SUV. The e-SIV features what SsangYong calls a “new horizon, smart dynamism” style, with smoother, more futuristic lines than its current, more rugged models.
