At the 2015 ENVEX in Seoul, SsangYong presented its Tivoli EVR range-extended electric car, which earlier this year was shown in Geneva.

Tivoli EVR, based on the conventional Tivoli, has electric range of 125 km (almost 80 miles) on its 25 kWh lithium polymer battery. Together with REx. range is 400 km.

Top speed stands at 150 km/h (93 mph) using its 80 kW electric motor.

We still don’t have too much knowledge on the car, nor on production plans.

It sounds like it’s what the i3 should have been.

Except for the 80 kw motor. The Volt for example as a compact has a 111 kw motor. This heavy SUV in EV mode would be very, very sluggish. 0-60 in 13-15 seconds slow

I have seen advertisements for this new SsangYong in Dublin. Unfortnunately it only comes with a 1.6 engines.

Obviously I hope they’ll come through with this. They always prided themselves as a great choice for company ownership and good quality for its value, yet efficiency was never easy for them. Hopefully they took notes from the Outlander PHEV’s performance int he UK.

This is a very interesting car that will instantly make the BMW i3 look as lacking. It has 4 normal doors, it seats five people, it has a normal shape it has more luggage room and best of all more ev range. It also is not affected by exaggerated luxury contamination and seem to have a proper volume fuel tank.

I won’t say that too soon. It could be compared to the Kia Soul EV at a stretch, the BYD e6 most likely.

The petrol SsangYong Trivoli weighs in at 1810kg, and the diesel at 100kg more. This is due to a highly extensive use of steel (over 70%). But it should be cheap.

Something like that, that could weigh 150-200kg more as a PHEV, would never be thought as a real competitor to the i3 which is seen as a quick, light and darty.

With 80kW or 100hp, it would act like a LEAF with 3 large passengers on board, considering if the PHEV weighs 1800kg, like the 1.6 petrol.

Very few details so far. It is curious that it is described as a range-extended electric car, which implies a small engine.
As a subcompact crossover, the nearest competitor would be the GM Korea Chevrolet Trax, a budget version of the Buick Encore.
With a bit of luck, this will prompt GM to market the Voltec drivetrain in the Buick Encore.
The Volt 1.5 weighing 1607 kg will have a 111 kW electric motor.
The Tivoli weighing 1800 kg plus battery pack & electric motor with just 80 kW sounds like it will function more like the Prius in relying on the ICE for acceleration.
