USEV is partnering to distribute DY INNOVATE cars.

USEV is introducing two new golf car products to the United States, and both have at least one thing in common – they are unique in their respective product segments.

DY INNOVATE, headquartered in Seoul, Korea, is the developer and producer of next generation golf car, and will introduce its new eight-passenger golf car under the guidance of its exclusive North American distributor USEV. Innovate is the best selling golf car in South Korea. The Low Speed Vehicle has earned 60 percent market share in South Korea since debuting in 2015. It is unlike any LSV golf car the industry has ever seen.

USEV CEO James Park knows he has a huge winner on his hands.

“When people see it and drive it for the first time, they can’t believe how good it is,” said Park. “The Innovate is the only golf car designed off of an automotive platform, and the components are all automotive caliber components. There is nothing like it on the market.”

Additionally, working in collaboration with LG Energy Solution and NanoIntech Energy Solution, Z.ONE EV, also headed by James Park, is the exclusive North American distributor for a new lithium battery technology and design. NanoIntech Lithium-Ion (NMC) Batteries Powered by LG Energy Solution outperforms its rivals in the market.

“It’s what’s inside the battery that makes the difference in quality and performance, and that is where LG rises above the competition,” said Joseph J. White, COO of Z.ONE EV. “Traditional lithium batteries use phosphate (LiFeP04) tubular cells. In our NanoIntech designed Battery Packs, we employ LG NCM (Nickel-Cobalt-Manganese) POUCH cells that are much more compact in size, more efficiently powerful in performance, and designed with an in-house developed advanced Battery Management Systems (BMS). Those are just some of the distinguishing features among other lithium batteries of which the majority are Chinese imports, and ours.”

The new LG-NanoIntech lithium battery models and the Innovate golf car will be on display at the Z.ONE AMERICA / NanoIntech booth # 3455 at the PGA Merchandise Show. A press conference is scheduled for 11 a.m. at the booth on Wednesday, Jan. 25.
