SsangYong have shown their e-SIV concept in Switzerland. The SUV is the fifth electric concept SsangYong have produced, and aims to combine efficiency, driving capability and an advanced approach to connectivity.
e-SIV stands for ‘electronic smart interface vehicle’, and the interior is aimed at ‘busy people’ and works with modern technology to become a ‘mobile communication space’. This will be achieved via a learning voice recognition system, internet connectivity and autonomous driving ability.
Aspects ranging from charging, infotainment and in emergency conditions even driving the vehicle could be controlled via a smartphone app.
The e-SIV would have a cruising range of up to 450km, and charging will take the battery from flat to 80% in fifty minutes.
