The Korean brand, formally known as Ssangyong, KG Mobility, has lifted the veil on its latest electric SUV, the Torres EVX. This new version comes with specific design details, an interior, and a powertrain. Following the Korando e-Motion, this new Torres EVX sits higher in the range, with ample interior space, V2L function, and up to 460 km of range.
The new Torres EVX is the first fully-electric vehicle launched by the Korean brand since it was saved from bankruptcy last year. However, its debut doesn’t come as a surprise, as KG Mobility announced four new BEVs in April, including this Torres EVX.
On that note, the new Torres EVX shares the same design as the concept car unveiled by the brand four months ago. It differentiates itself from the ICE Torres with a whole new front facia. The Torres EVX showcases a striking horizontal LED daytime running light running the entire width without any grill.
For the rest, the design of this new electric variant remains pretty much identical. Therefore, we can still see particularly sculptured side profiles with that specific and thick C-pillar, which seems to be finished in black on this electric version.
Electric = more screens
An interior pushing toward technology contrasts the rugged exterior. The dashboard and cockpit layout is specific to the Torres EVX, with a floating center console and two 12,3-inch screens.
What doesn’t change from the ICE-powered versions is the available space. KG Mobility proudly announced that the Torres is an SUV for leisure, electric or not. In terms of practicality, that means an 839-liter trunk and a 174-mm ride height. Useful to cross that wooden beam at the campsite.
Up to 460 km, or even 500 km
At the moment, KG Mobility keeps the technical data behind closed doors. But it only does that for…Europe. That’s undoubtedly due to homologation. For the rest of the world, we already know that the Torres EVX packs a 73,4 kWh LFP battery, which powers a 201-hp electric motor on the rear axle.
KG Mobility is willing to divulge the range, although be it the preliminary figures. That LFP battery, combined with an optimized battery management system, provides the Torres EVX with a range of up to 460 km. KG Mobility says it could go up to 500 km in the city. More interesting still, the Torres EVX packs the V2L (Vehicle-to-Load) function and three-phase charging.
Final specifications and pricing are expected for Europe by the end of this year, and the new KG Mobility Torres EVX should be in Belgian dealerships as soon as in early 2024.
