SsangYong confirms electric ute for production, but launch timing and Australian prospects unclear

The first electric dual-cab ute on sale in Australia might not wear Toyota, Ford, Isuzu or Tesla badging – instead, it could come from struggling South Korean carmaker SsangYong. As part of a wider electric vehicle (EV) brand announcement overnight, SsangYong confirmed its future electric range will include an "EV pick-up" – more than likely of a similar size to the brand's current offering in the 4x4 dual-cab ute segment, the recently-facelifted Musso.
