Ssangyong has reportedly said it may sell the Rodius model line as part of its restructuring efforts.

“We may consider the selloff of the Rodius assembly lines when the model is not in production any more,” a company spokesman told Dow Jones.

The company sold the production facilities of the Istana recreational vehicle in mid-2003 and the Musso and Korando SUVs in early 2007, after halting production, the report noted.

Ssangyong said last week it will close one of the production lines at its lone domestic plant for three-and-a-half months beginning this week in a bid to improve its overall production efficiency.

The Yonhap news agency reported earlier this week that Ssangyong plans to remodel the No. 1 assembly line at its plant in Pyeongtaek, about 70 km south of Seoul, to produce the C200, a new, small-sized sports utility vehicle scheduled to hit the market in the second half of the year.

During the renovation, No. 1 assembly line workers will take a leave with 70 percent of their ordinary salary paid, according to company officials.

The C200, which debuted at the Paris Motor Show last October, is considered vital to the survival of the financially troubled Ssangyong.
