Close to bankruptcy, the Korean SsangYong is doing its best to find investors who will allow it to improve its current dire financial situation. Realizing that they would not be interested in the current model line, the company decided that it was time for it to return to its roots. A new model was announced today that should return the Korando to the status of a true frame SUV that it wore in the first two generations.
The press service of SsangYong has distributed a portion of sketches of this brutal SUV. In the Korean version, the car is designated as KR10, and in the English version as X200.
The ideological successor of the frame “Korandos” in the pictures looks like a real brutal SUV. Whether it will receive the name Korando or its name will be different is still unknown.
There are no technical details about the model. However, from the point of view of “technology”, the previously new SsangYong SUV was declared as completely original, having no relative with an internal combustion engine.
As for the prospects of SsangYong itself, the American startup HAAH Automotive Holdings has been eyeing the company for about a year, but it was not possible to buy the company from the main shareholder (Indian Mahindra & Mahindra) from the first time due to opposition from the Indian government … According to Automotive News, the Americans will try to do it again through the company, specially created for this task, Cardinal One Motors.
