Electric Vehicles

https://korean-machinery.com///inquiryBeijing Motors Korea was established in 2016 as the South Korean Branch of Beijing Automotive Group Co., Ltd., acquiring exclusive rights for distributing its electric vehicles in Korea.
Beijing Motors Korea has plans to produce Korean-made EVs with its own technology within three to four years by establishing its own manufacturing factories in South Korea.
In the preliminary stages, Beijing Motors Korea is currently involved in various activities that are expected to help its business positioning from current importer into net exporter in global markets.
In 2019, Beijing Motors Korea has a plan to first release electric low floor buses in the nation’s medium-sized bus market, and then it will introduce the electric passenger car EU5 and the highperformance electric car SUV EX5. Those cars have the world’s highest level performance, showing mileage of over 500 kilometers with only a single charging.
Beijing Motors Korea was determined to expand the supply of commercial trucks which are in relatively short supply in South Korea, targeting independent businessmen and company customers. With comparatively lower maintenance costs than internal combustion engines, they are expected to be popular among customers.
Beijing Automotive Group’s electric trucks features high competitiveness in price compared to those of EVs in the nation, with a little gap in quality. Beijing Motors Korea will target the medium- and small-sized truck market. These electric trucks deliver superior stability and performance. These trucks are expected to be impressive electric trucks popular among the nation’s buyers, especially the growing number of small businesses affected by the economic slowdown.
In fact, as of 2016, there were 140,000 units of these trucks sold. They are suitable for short-distance driving, and they can be developed into more optimized and functional types. Beijing Motors Korea plans to supply optimized trucks depending on each purpose in use.
Beijing Motors Korea had the electric bus FOTON AUV to be first sold in Gangneung City among the brands of Beijing Automotive Group, which made a trial run during the PyeongChang Olympics. Persistent efforts are now being made to advance into the South Korean market.
Beijing Automotive Group is a company that established Beijing Hyundai in China in collaboration with Hyundai Motors.

‘Kinergy AS ev,’ a Tire Exclusively for First-Generation Electric Vehicles

https://korean-machinery.com///inquiry[INQ. NO. 1811M07] It is reported that Kinergy AS ev, a new product of Hankook Tire released at this time, has remedied various defects of the tire exclusively for firstgeneration electric vehicles, thereby realizing an ultra-low noise environment and providing a comfort similar to that provided by the tire for supercars.
The Sound Absorber Technology has been realized by applying polyurethane sound-absorbing foam to the inner lining of the tire. Here, the sound-absorbing foam disperses the external pressure evenly as well as effectively absorbs the road noise coming into the car.
As a test result of actually applying the Sound Absorber Technology, it was confirmed that the technology reduced the road noise (resonance) by 9.2dB to the maximum, enhancing the quietness of the electric car.
While existing electric car tires have shown poor performance at high speeds or driving abilities, Kinergy AS ev applies the Aqua Pine compound with resin and vegetable oil extracted from conifers. Characteristically, Hankook Tire’s unique technology of applying high silica content ensures agile handling and braking performance in all driving environments.
One strong point of the product is that application of the aramid reinforcement belt suppresses increase of the tire’s diameter caused by the centrifugal force while driving and shows the best handling and kinetic performance in various driving environments. Kinergy AS ev has applied the Extra Load (XL) by increasing the allowable load of the tire.
By applying an extra load, Kinergy AS ev has secured the load-bearing capacity enhanced by 75KG compared with the load index of standard tires and maintains the optimal supporting pressure in any driving environment such as during acceleration, turning, and braking.
As the large-capacity battery is applicable to the electric car instead of fuel, static electricity occurs frequently. However, Kinergy AS ev has applied the chimney rubber structure in the tire for discharging the static electricity flowing through the electric car to the ground surface so that the driver can enjoy comfortable and safe driving.
Wide and strong rib-typed shoulder blocks enhance the handling performance and prevent abrasion of tires, and the crossarrayed edges minimize the block strain and improve torsion. The dimple cooling system effectively dissipates the heat that is condensed in the tire tread due to high-speed driving. When the car is braked, this product minimizes the deformation of the block and maintains the ground plane to provide the best braking force.
