HV iCOOL™, a space-saving thermal management vehicle solution, makes its public debut
SEOUL, Korea, April 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Leading automotive thermal management solutions provider Halla Visteon Climate Control Corp. (KS: 018880) is showcasing an array of eco-friendly and highly-efficient technologies for vehicles at the 2015 Seoul Motor Show.
HVCC, which expanded its global reach and product portfolio following the integration of Visteon’s climate operations in 2013, and acquisition of the automotive thermal and emissions product line of Cooper-Standard Automotive in 2014, will showcase its expanded product line at the show.
Highlighting a theme for this year’s show, "Experience HVCC, Smart Thermal Solutions beyond Climate Control," HVCC will debut a technology demonstration vehicle that allows visitors to experience firsthand the future of smart thermal solutions.
New products for eco-friendly vehicles also are on display at the show, including a heat pump system for electric vehicles, centrifugal air compressor for hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles, CO2 sensor and other smart solutions that deliver occupant comfort.
Presented publicly for the first time is HVCC’s HV iCOOL™ solution, a revolutionary integrated climate control system that combines the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), compressor and condenser into a single unit with a compact refrigerant system. By design, HV iCOOL enables automakers to rethink the interior design of the vehicle by moving the HVAC from its traditional location behind the instrument panel to locations such as under the driver’s seat or in the luggage compartment. By eliminating the electric heater, this patented product is designed to offer up to a 30 percent weight reduction compared with conventional systems and the potential to improve the drive range of an electric vehicle by up to 30 percent.
The 2015 Seoul Motor Show runs through April 12. HVCC’s booth is located at P41 in the Kintex Korea International Exhibition Center.
