SsangYong Reveals New Seven-Seater SUV Concept in Geneva

SsangYong seems like a manufacturer that is really trying to improve, adapt and become a bigger player, and they’re certainly looking like one with the kind of quality concepts that they’ve been showing off over the last few years.

This time, at the Geneva motor show, they chose to unveil a new SUV vision for an “eXciting smart Lifestyle Vehicle”, or XLV as they call it.

It is the latest in a line of concepts dating back to 2011, but it’s an important one, because the Korean manufacturer says it “will become one of its core strategic models to underpin its future growth.”

Power is extracted out of both a 1.6-liter diesel engine and an electric motor that sucks juice out of a now-commonplace lithium ion battery pack.

The XLV can hold up to seven people and they’re trying to portray it as a “genuine multi-role vehicle for both urban driving and the pursuit of outdoor leisure;” it could result in a rather nice production SUV, especially if they keep it as muscular-looking as it does now.
