SsangYong has unveiled its new XLV concept (eXciting smart Lifestyle Vehicle) at this year’s Geneva Motor Show.
The XLV is a B-segment SUV concept featuring significantly lower CO2 emissions thanks to its hybrid system which combines a 1.6-litre diesel engine with an electric motor powered by a lithium ion battery. XLV is the latest iteration in a series of multi-interface concepts which were first seen with the XIV-1 presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2011. The XLV will become one of SsangYong’s core strategic models to underpin its future growth.
290mm longer than the XIV-1 concept, XLV provides accommodation for seven passengers in an innovative 2+2+2+1 arrangement, where the seventh seat slides between the second and third rows for optimum flexibility. The new concept showcases SsangYong’s design philosophy of being ‘Robust, Specialty and Premium’.
The XLV is a genuine multi-role vehicle for both urban driving and the pursuit of outdoor leisure activities.
