SsangYong confirmed UK prices and specifications for the Korando e-Motion SUV. Orders are not officially open yet and the SsangYong UK website is still asking customers to register interest. However, SsangYong’s latest UK price list contains full prices and equipment for the new model, suggesting that sales are due imminently.
Prices for the Korando e-Motion will start from £30,495 for the base model ELX variant after the £1,500 Plug-in car grant is taken into consideration. SsangYong also offers two more model variants, priced from £34,995 for the mid-spec Ventura and £37,995 for the range-topping Ultimate.
The Korando e-Motion is powered by a single electric motor producing 139 kW, more than the turbocharged 1.5-litre petrol engine fitted to the crossover’s current flagship model. The battery will have a capacity of 61.5kWh, which the manufacturer states is enough for a range of of over 260 miles on the outdated NEDC testing cycle.
In addition to the new vehicles offers, SsangYong dealers will be able to offer Korando e-Motion owners preferential prices for a home 7kW untethered or tethered unit smart charger and its installation. Including the £350 OZEV Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme grant, an EO Mini Pro 7kW homecharge point can be purchased starting from £595, versus an RRP from £945
“With the arrival of our new pure electric Korando e-Motion, it’s important that our customers have access to quality charging solutions at home to ensure they are able to charge frequently, quickly and economically,” said Kevin Griffin, managing director at SsangYong Motors UK. “With EO, we believe we have an attractive proposition to complement Korando e-Motion and SsangYong’s future range of electric vehicles that are in the pipeline, particularly when the Mini Pro 2 has a 7-year warranty, matching that of e-Motion.”
