Ultra-compact Electric Car (DANIGO)

https://korean-machinery.com///inquiry[INQ. NO. 1707M27] Daechang Motors recently launched an ultra-compact four-wheel-drive electric car, DANIGO, by completing its development and implementing road test driving. This is the first time that an ultra-compact electric car model for road driving has been introduced in Korea. Thus far, most of them were made in China, electric scooters, or remodeled electric cars.

The development of DANIGO was based on accumulated technology related to electric vehicles and expectations of higher demand for ultra-compact electric vehicles through cases such as Europe and Japan.

Oh Chung-gi, the CEO of Daechang Motors, established the company in 2010. This is the second establishment. Mr. Oh, also founded the display manufacturer, ‘Decktron’ and has led the company for more than 10 years to make it become an SME with annual sales exceeding 100 billion won. He sold his entire stake a few years ago and entered into the electric car market. As an engineer, he is confident that he will be able to compete with small and mediumsized enterprises (SMEs) in the field of electric cars.

The recently launched Danigo is small but offers sufficient space and minimized inconvenience. It looks very cute when viewed from any side, and its round shape is enough to draw attention of passers-by. ‘Danigo’ was developed with a focus on overcoming the disadvantages of the Renault Twizy of Samsung. While it is an ultra-compact electric car, it is equipped with an air conditioner inside the vehicle, as well as HAC function to prevent the vehicle from sliding back on hills when the foot is removed from the accelerator.

Danigo weighs a mere 450 kg, including battery. It has excellent battery and driving performance. As it is equipped with a 7.5 Kw motor, it has a maximum speed of 80 km/h. It is equipped with a cylindrical compact battery, exclusive battery management system (BMS) and battery display indicator (BDI). It is equipped with 560 LG Chemical’s latest 11.8Wh class (3.2Ah) cylindrical batteries (model name: 18650) with a capacity of 6.6kWh. It can be driven up to 100 km with one charge. It takes about one hour with a fast charging, while it takes 3.5 hours using a general 220V electric cord for home use.

Danigo occupies one-third of parking space compared to an ordinary sedan. It was the first ultra-compact electric car that is equipped with a rear camera to ensure convenience and safety when reversing or parking, and made airbag and ABS brake for options to meet the safety needs of customers.
