Proton X90 FIRE Don’t Jump To Conclusions
There is a video circulating on social media showing a Proton X90 fire in the rear luggage compartment being out out
Yesterday evening we were shared many many many times a video of a brand new Proton X90 catching fire and the video does not show HOW the fire started and only the fire being put out with a fire extinguisher.
This video by now has been shared across so many platforms and most of them are saying that it was the hybrid battery in the X90.
Well, right now there is a detailed investigation being conducted by the Proton and Geely team to find out the real cause of this fire and until an official statement is release by Proton management we should not be saying what caused the fire as we do not know the actual reason.
Meanwhile, we share some information. This Proton X90 is the company’s first-ever SUV equipped with a mild hybrid system, making it a significant milestone for the brand. But why is the powertrain so crucial for this vehicle’s success?
The Proton X90 comes with a 48V Electric Motor Synergy (EMS) System, which is designed to work in tandem with the car’s internal combustion engine. This system provides extra torque and acceleration when needed, making for a more powerful and smoother driving experience.
It also helps to reduce fuel consumption and emissions, which is excellent news for anyone concerned about their carbon footprint.
The 48V EMS System is made up of six key components, including the 48V Belt-Starter Generator (BSG) motor, the DCDC Converter, the 48V Lithium-Ion Battery, the Battery Management System, the Recuperation Braking System, and the Hybrid Module Control System. These components work together to offer a more economical, more powerful, and smoother driving experience to users.
One of the key benefits of the BSG system is that it allows a vehicle to have various electric vehicle features, including extended shutdown, comfort start, dynamic boost, engine-off sailing, quick starting, full boost, and regeneration.
These features enhance the driving experience by reducing noise and vibration, providing smoother starts, better pickup, and safer overtaking. This is especially important for an SUV like the Proton X90, which needs to deliver a comfortable and enjoyable ride for all its passengers.
But the benefits of the powertrain go beyond just the driving experience. The 48V EMS System can deliver up to 15 percent improved fuel consumption, which is great news for anyone looking to save on gas. It also helps to reduce emissions, making the Proton X90 an eco-friendlier choice.
