SsangYong outlines 2019-2024 product plans; building electric dual-cab ute
During a recent presentation to Australian journalists in South Korea,
automaker SsangYong shared some pertinent information about its plans for
the vehicles it intends to launch in the period between 2019 and 2024.
The presentation by Ssang Yong has come a few months ahead of the brand’s
scheduled relaunch in South Korea in November 2018. Earlier this decade, the
Ssang Yong fell into receivership and faced bankruptcy, but Indian giant
Mahindra saved the company by purchasing it.
In its recently-held presentation, the Ssang Yong told Australian
journalists that it plans to launch two new-generation SUV models as well as
an MPV product in the mentioned time period. In addition, the automaker also
revealed that it has efforts underway to also launch an electric-powered
crossover and dual-cab ute (or pick-up).
The disclosure by SsangYong implies that the company may possibly be the
first automaker to bring a battery-powered dual-cab ute to the market.
