- SsangYong announces the launch of its first EV for the first half of 2021
- Mid-sized SUV with space and versatility, and an all-new design approach along with market-focused features
SsangYong Motor has teased its first EV (electric vehicle) with the release of a sneak-preview image.
Developed under the project name of E100, the image of the all-new EV ahead of its launch next year graphically expresses
its exterior design. This mid-sized family car with comparable living space and versatility adopts a new approach to body design
while utilizing new materials to maximize efficiency.
The overall design is based on a voluminous yet aerodynamic outline, with a style optimized for urban driving. For maximized
energy efficiency, the car is fitted with an all-aluminum engine bonnet – a first for SsangYong, along with a sealed radiator
grille to reduce weight and improve the center of gravity.
The design is inspired by nature, especially animals that have adapted to their environment through evolution such
as shark fins and the shape of scales to minimize wind and water resistance, thus expressing a design maturity with a dynamic style.
This first EV for SsangYong is set to be released in the first half of next year and expected to bring a significant addition to
the marketplace with a future-focused design for both the interior and exterior and a new level of product quality.
