The South Korean based automaker SsangYong has recently announced that the e-XIV concept car will be officially presented to the public later on this month, during the 2012 Paris Motor Show.

After pulling the wraps off the XIV-2 Convertible Crossover Concept during the 2012 Geneva Motor Show in March, SsangYong is working on yet another concept car, which will be named the e-XIV concept and its name comes, just as you have probably expected, from “electric”, along with “eXciting user Interface Vehicle”.

“e-XIV (electric ? eXciting user Interface Vehicle) is an EV concept within the SsangYong XIV design series, and a B-segment CUV (crossover utility vehicle). It is a ‘Range Extender EV’ electric car which is also self-chargeable by utilising a small petrol engine, thereby overcoming the issues of limited driving distance and battery charging infrastructure”, as the automaker is saying in its official press release.

According to SsangYong, the e-XIV concept car is 4,160 mm ling, 1,790 mm wide and 1,575 mm tall, with a wheelbase of 2,600 mm. the model is getting a glass roof, mounted solar cell panels for more energy and a lot of interesting features, which will be presented on the 27th of September, during the first day of the Paris Motor Show.
