Electric SsangYong Torres EVX SUV Revealed

Will We Get an AWD Version? Answer by Month’s End.

In February of this year, we unveiled the very first spy photographs of a forthcoming electric car from South Korean automaker SsangYong. Since then, they have released the initial authentic and clear photos of the electrified SUV wearing the auspicious Torres EVX name. Although quite a few specifics about it are still veiled, the manufacturing company plans to render full details in the upcoming 2023 Seoul Mobility Show on the 30th of March.

At a cursory glance, the electric version of the Torres appears to have quite a lot in common with its combustion-driven counterpart which was first introduced back in June. From a superficial perspective their side profiles are nearly indistinguishable; however, if you take a closer look the front fascia on the all-electric edition has a somewhat smoother aesthetic thanks to the arrangement of six LEDs between the corner LED lights situated at the top. By contrast, the electrical model’s internal-combustion sibling sports headlights in place of these LED clusters.

In a move that is not particularly current in the auto sector nowadays, the internal composition of the electric Torres differs significantly from the variant furnished with a 1.5-liter turbo engine. Instead of the enormous tablet-style show situated at its center, it has been altered to a two-display layout, akin in pattern to BMW’s solution. Also, the console beneath the main monitor has been substituted and there does not appear to be an additional display for the HVAC system. Even though we cannot view the rest of the dash, the wheel appears to be identical and shows up to have physical buttons on either of its sides.

Sadly, what goes under the bonnet of the Torres EVX is not specified by SsangYong, who will soon become KG Mobility. Nevertheless, there exists an electric crossover from the same maker – the Korando e-Motion – with a single motor on the front axle that pumps out 190bhp.

This EV houses a battery pack boasting a practical capacity of 55.3 kWh, allowing it to drive up to 211 miles (340 kilometers) when measured by the WLTP cycle. Looking at its hardy design and extensive dimensions, we assume that updates will come with possibly an all-wheel-drive variation. Get your engines running, as more details are set to be issued on March 30.
