SsangYong unveils its new XLV hybrid concept at the Geneva Motor Show

The XLV is a ‘smart user interface’ 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.

Showcasing SsangYong’s design philosophy of being ‘Robust, Specialty and Premium’, this latest concept projects a rhythmical and dynamic exterior design aimed at appealing to the smart user who seeks individuality and practicality to support their active lifestyle.

The XLV is a genuine multi-role vehicle for both urban driving and the pursuit of outdoor leisure activities.
