SsangYong Korando To Get Electric Variant With 300 Km Range

According to a Dutch publication, the next-generation Ssangyong Korando will be offered in an all-electric guise and have a 300 km (186 miles) range over the European driving cycle.

Autorai asserts that the new Korando will take design inspiration from last year’s XAV-Adventure Concept and that the electric technology underpinning the model will come thanks to parent company Mahindra & Mahidra.

While no further details about the car are given, it is thought that it will be sold alongside conventionally-powered variants, providing customers with the opportunity to select for what powertrain best suits them.

It is possible that the car’s setup could draw on technology from the Tivoli EVR concept unveiled last year. If that is the case then an electric motor delivering 127 hp could be used. Where the EVR concept had a small petrol range extender, the electric Korando is expected to do without, meaning it’ll have to be recharged from a electricity socket.

Considering the rapidly expanding electric vehicle market and Ssangyong’s current lack of a production electric vehicle, it seems appropriate the brand wants to launch one based around the Korando, due some time in 2019.
