Ssangyong has teased the upcoming electric iteration of the Ssangyong Tivoli called the ‘Ssangyong E100’ or Tivoli EV. The Ssangyong Tivoli EV has been spotted testing in the international market and is based on the same lines and speculated to use the MESMA (Mahindra Electric Scalable Matrix Architecture) platform as the Mahindra eXUV300 that was showcased at the 15th edition of the Auto Expo 2020 in February at Delhi, India.
Though the standard ICE Ssangyong Tivoli is slightly larger than the ICE Mahindra XUV300 in spite of sharing platforms, it is not yet confirmed that if the electric version of the Tivoli will be of the same size as its ICE iteration or smaller like the eXUV300.
According to the teaser image, the design is quite similar to the eXUV300 and features a cluster LED headlamp, closed front grille with Ssangyong logo, bar-style LED daytime running light integrated into the headlight, a sharp wing-shaped air dam, trapezoidal air vents in the foglight area similar to the eXUV300, a geometric front apron and rounded wheel arches.
The Mahindra eXUV300 that was showcased at the biennial event featured a textured closed grille, sharp headlamp units with diamond-patterned LED elements, a grated air dam blue-accented features around the EV, air curtain alloy wheels, ORVMs (Outside Rear View Mirrors) by rearview cameras placed on a stem-like mount, combination tail lamp with blue and black inserts, sharp cuts & crease lines and blue elements on the rear bumper.
While no official detail on the powertrain has been revealed on the Tivoli E100 it is believed to share its powertrain with the eXUV300 which is likely to come with a 350V or a 380V powertrain with two battery pack options with a range of approximately 300 km or above.
The Ssangyong E100 and the eXUV300 are likely to arrive in their respective markets around the second half of 2021.
