Natural Heritage

Natural Heritage
Preserving the natural patrimony is the most inexpensive and efficient environmental economics. The term natural heritage derives from the French "patrimoine naturel", the totality of natural assets, including those of historical, cultural or scenic beauty. It give us understanding the importance of natural environment: where we came from, what we do and how we will be. Our lives are connected to the landscapes of our daily lives, as well as we keep the memories of places we went. The destruction of these landscapes cause irreversible environmental damage, and are an insult to our memory, causing loss of quality of life.

Kia has unveiled the Naimo Concept at the 2011 Seoul Motor Show

At the 2011 Seoul Motor Show Kia has unveiled the Naimo Concept, a crossover utility vehicle (CUV) with a pure electric powertrain and a design with simple lines and elements inspired by Korean arts and crafts.

The Naimo Concept takes its name from the Korean word “Ne-mo”, (pronounced ‘Neh-mo’) which means‘square shape’.
This geometric shape is reflected in the overall solid and boxy appearance of the car as well as in a number of details that use rounded rectangles: from the dot-style LED headlights and tail lights to the grid-styled front openings and the door handle surfaces.
The Naimo also features some unusual details such as the asymmetric sunroof inspired by the forms of Asian Celadon-style pottery, the wraparound windscreen and the air-wiper – which uses high-intensity air jet to and replaces the traditional wiper blade on the windscreen.
The jade exterior finish is also inspired by traditional Korean arts and crafts.
To offer an easy access to the cabin, there are no B-pillars and the rear doors are rear-hinged. Also, the trunk has a three-way split opening for versatile loading operations.
The conventional side mirrors have been replaced with miniature cameras integrated in the A-pillars.
Technical Features
The PMSM (Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor) electric motor has a maximum output of 80 kW (109 ps) and a maximum torque of 280 Nm.
A twin-pack 27 kWh battery is located under the trunk floor and uses LiPoly (Lithium Ion Polymer) technology.
The Naimo has a driving range of 200 km (124 miles) on a single charge. To enhance range, the concept car is fitted with special low-drag 20-inch diameter alloy wheels.
Under the quick recharging cycle (50 kW) the Naimo’s battery can be recharged to 80 percent of its capacity within 25 minutes. Under the normal cycle (3.3 kW), 100 percent power takes five and a half hours.
