Although e-XIV looks like it should mean e-14, Korean automaker SsangYong intends the tortured acronym for its new electric concept to stand for electric – eXciting user Interface Vehicle. The press release announcing the new concept did not go into details of what the user interface might be like, but did mention it would be electrically driven, and include a gasoline engine to generate electricity once the batteries are depleted.

The vehicle renderings show many cues standard on recent concept vehicles. The rounded front and LED lights all around are reminiscent of such past concept cars as the Citroen Revolte. Oversized wheels on what looks like a small SUV have also been a common theme with recent concept vehicles. The small SUV style is somewhat illusory with the e-XIV, as the concept is just over 5 feet high. With only two doors, it seems more like a hatchback.
