First Sketch: Ssangyong e-XIV Concept

SsangYong has released renderings of its e-XIV electric car concept ahead of its debut at the Paris motor show later this month.

The B-segment crossover concept adopts a range-extender drivetrain, combining a small petrol engine with batteries and electric motor. The concept’s glass roof incorporates solar cell panels, likely to be used to provide additional energy for interior systems rather than the car’s drivetrain.

The new design study is the latest variant of SsangYong’s XIV series of concepts and appears broadly similar to the XIV-2 concept displayed earlier this year at the Geneva motor show.

The e-XIV name stands for Electric Exciting user-Interface Vehicle. Should it enter production, the model would sit below the Korando SUV in the company’s line-up.

Full details of the car will be released at the Paris show at the end of the month.
