SEOUL, July 12 (Yonhap) -- SsangYong Motor Co., the South Korean unit of Indian carmaker Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd., said Thursday the Rexton Sports sport-utility vehicle went on sale in Britain this month following its launch in Germany last month.

In Europe, the 2.2-liter diesel-powered Rexton Sports SUV is sold under a different model name, Musso, which means rhinoceros. The midsized SUV will be gradually launched in other European markets, the company said in a statement.

SsangYong Motor has sold models, such as the Tivoli and G4 Rexton SUVs, in Europe, the Middle East and Latin America.

In the January-June period, the company sold a combined 66,948 vehicles, down 4.8 percent from 70,345 a year earlier.

Mahindra & Mahindra owns a 72.85 percent stake in SsangYong Motor.
