Ssangyong's £1.5 billion investment

  • 20 new cars by 2014
  • Five new engines for revised range
  • Some will go on sale in the UK
Ssangyong aims to launch 20 new cars by 2014.

The company, which is being relaunched in the UK this year after signing up a new distributor, says that it will build its new cars on five new platforms and introduce five new engines to its range in a £1.5bn investment plan.

Paul Williams, managing director of Ssangyong's UK distributor Koelliker UK, said: 'I've seen some of the new models and, although it's unlikely that all 20 will be appropriate for the UK, it will mean a wider and more attractive range.'

Ssangyong revealed its own diesel hybrid technology at this year's Geneva motor show, which is expected to feature in the new model line-up. The company claims that it can improve fuel efficiency by up to 30%.
