SsangYong Brought the Tivolan EVR Concept to Shanghai

It might not be the most interesting car in the world, but the SsangYong Tivoli EVR Concept gathered plenty of looks on the floor of the Shanghai Auto Show 2015. It looks like it came from the future but what is it exactly?

Well, after it was first introduced at Geneva, last month, the Tivoli EVR (in China it will be known as the Tivolan) is now making its Asian debut at the Shanghai venue.

Under the ‘bonnet’ of this car lies a 130 HP electric motor that powers the car up, joined by a single-cylinder petrol unit that works just as a generator. Basically, it’s the same principle as on the Range Extended i3.

However, it claims to have a different range, the Korean car maker saying that the Tivolan EVR has a pure electric range of 130 km (80 miles). On top of that, the range extender apparently can take you farther, up to 310 miles (500 km) to be more precise, while emitting only 40 grams of CO2 per kilometer.

Unfortunately, even though a month passed since we first saw it, the SsangYong Tivoli EVR is still just a concept despite the Koreans claiming that it could go on sale in the near future.

And selling it, especially in China, would make sense. While we snapped photos of it, there was a serious crowd gathering around it, wanting to learn more about this range-extended EV. With some carefully thought out government incentives, the Tivolan could be a popular model that would help reduce the level of pollution around big cities in the Asian country.
