Ssangyong Motor has showcased the Tivoli along with its environmentally friendly concept Tivoli EVR at the 85th Geneva International Motor Show.
The Tivoli Electric Vehicle with Range Extender (EVR) uses eco-friendly electric vehicle technology, the company said.
The side panel of the body is made of carbon fiber, achieving a very low weight. The front bumper and the rear carbon diffuser, which minimize the air resistance coefficient, also have improved efficiency.
The Tivoli EVR features a small gasoline engine, a 95kW motor, and a 25kWh lithium-ion battery. It is possible to travel 130 kilometers on EV mode and 500 kilometers on “range extend” mode. It has a maximum speed of 150km/h, while it emits carbon emissions of only 35g/km.
SsangYong Motor is planning to open a European office in Frankfurt, Germany and expand its sales locations to 700 all over Europe.
SsangYong Motor CEO Lee Yoo-il said, “By sequentially launching the Tivoli by region in the future, we will strengthen the brand power of SsangYong Motor not only in the European market but also in the global SUV market.”
