SsangYong has given its all-new Tivoli compact SUV the electric vehicle treatment in a concept unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.

Called the Tivoli EVR, the concept is a range-extended hybrid powered by a 95kW electric motor matched with a single-cylinder petrol engine used only for recharging the battery.

As you may expect, the EVR’s CO2 output is quite low at 40g/km but the top speed is a not-too-shabby 150km/h.

The concept has an all-electric range of up to 128km, before the petrol engine kicks in to extend the total range to around 500km.

SsangYong is yet to confirm if a production version of the Tivoli EVR is in the works, but such a model could serve as a strong alternative to the likes of Kia’s Soul EV in overseas markets.

There’s a chance a future Tivoli EVR could be offered for sale in Australia as well, eventually joining the regular Tivoli range set to arrive in local showrooms by the end of this year.

Importantly, the Tivoli rides on a brand-new platform, SsangYong’s first since Indian giant Mahindra bought a controlling stake in the brand back in 2011.

Power in overseas markets comes from a 1.6 litre petrol engine making 92kW/157Nm, while a 1.6 litre diesel engine is expected to follow.

A six-speed manual transmission will be standard, while an Aisin six-speed auto will be offered as an option. Australian specifications are yet to be confirmed.

The 2015 SsangYong Tivoli will compete in the booming local compact SUV market, up against the likes of Renault’s new Captur, Mazda’s incoming CX-3, the Holden Trax and Nissan Juke.
