SsangYong has unveiled its
e-SIV concept car at the Geneva motor show, a strategic model showcasing the
brand’s future approach to electric vehicles, connectivity and autonomous
e-SIV is a C-segment sized
electric vehicle (EV) and is the company’s fifth electric car concept to be
exhibited. Previous models include KEV1
in 2010, KEV2 (2011), e-XIV (2012), and Tivoli EV-R shown at the Geneva Motor
Show in 2015, demonstrating the brand’s commitment to EVs.
e-SIV - which stands for
Electronic Smart Interface Vehicle, has been developed to demonstrate
SsangYong’s approach to creating a connected mobility solution and autonomous
driving. The company recognises that
change in future mobility will only result from positive consumer interest,
engagement and experience, and e-SIV will be central in helping to shape the
next-generation of SsangYong SUVs and EVs.
With a compact, balanced and
dynamic design to create a sporty looking car for the future, the e-SIV is
based on the design of SsangYong’s next generation C-segment SUV.
The coupé design blends an
attractive body shape with usability and convenience to differentiate it from
other EV models, and is intended to position the brand as one that appeals to
different future lifestyles.
The interior design reflects
the changes that SsangYong has embarked on to create a smart, user-centric
interface within a balanced and organised space, and is equipped with four
independent bucket seats.
The autonomous driving
technology applied to the e-SIV uses a radar and camera sensor system. This stage 2 self-driving technology
recognises the lane the car is travelling in, and can maintain a safe distance
between it and other vehicles on the road.
This can be further enhanced with an additional sensor to increase the
automatic lane and active driving function to achieve self-driving stage 3.
