Title: BODY-SIDE OUTER PANEL WITH HIDDEN SILL
Abstract:
Disclosed is a body-side outer panel with a hidden sill, the body-side outer panel comprising an appearance wall (1) exposed outside a vehicle body after assembly, a connection wall (2) for connection with the vehicle body (6), and a first flanging (3) arranged between the appearance wall (1) and the connection wall (2) so as to connect the appearance wall (1) and the connection wall (2). An angle of the connection line from the junction of the appearance wall (1) and the first flanging (3) to the critical position of the lowest end of the connection wall (2) with respect to the horizontal plane is 15°-25°. For the body-side outer panel with a hidden sill, by providing the angle of the connection line from the junction of the appearance wall and the first flanging to the critical position of the lowest end of the connection wall with respect to the horizontal plane to be 15°-25°, it is achieved that, when the vehicle body is viewed from the outside by a person in an upright posture, the welding face of the connection wall is completely covered by the junction of the first flanging and the appearance wall, thereby improving the perceived overall aesthetics of the vehicle body and reducing the single-vehicle cost of the sill structure of the body-side outer panel.
