Announced with a series of teasers, the SsangYong Torres will be the second 100% electric model sold by the Korean brand on the mainland.
Arriving smartly in the electric car segment with the Korando EV, the Korean brand SsangYong is preparing the introduction of its second model on the European market.
Announced a year ago under the code name “J100”, the SsangYong Torres will take the form of a large SUV whose lines are reminiscent of those of Land Rover models. Positioned between the Korando and Rexton within the SsangYong range, it will be approximately 4.6m long. So its size will be comparable to that of the Skoda Enyaq, Volkswagen ID.4 or the new Toyota bZ4X.
Characteristics to be determined
Based on a common platform, the model will be able to handle thermal and electrical power stations. Currently, the manufacturer does not provide more technical information. Considering its size, however, we expect better performance than that of the Korando e-Motion which combines a 61.5 kWh battery with a 190 horse block.
