Kia Motors Will Debut 48V Diesel Hybrid Powertrain This Year

Kis Sportage The Car Expert

Kia has announced plans to introduce new mild hybrid technology to its line-up, similar to the drivetrains now utilised by Audi.

The system makes its debut in the Sportage later this year but will later find a home in the all-new third-generation Kia Ceed and other Kia models from 2019.

The EcoDynamics+ powertrain reduces Carbon dioxide emissions by supplementing acceleration with electric power from an additional 48-volt battery and extending combustion engine "off time" using a new mild-hybrid starter-generator unit. The starter generator is mounted to the engine via a belt, and provides quick starts-so the engine can remain off when the vehicle is stopped-thereby reducing emissions. In the 1st mode, when accelerating the vehicle gets up to 10 kW extra electricity, thereby facilitates the work of the main engine and as a effect decreases the number of harmful emissions.

That left a starting outside spot open across from Davante Adams , with Randall Cobb occupying the slot. Even more are anxious that the Packers don't have enough weapons for Aaron Rodgers to use.

The mild hybrid system is compact and can be easily incorporated into existing vehicles. The system will be available on the new Kia Sportage SUV. In "generator" mode, the system harvests kinetic energy from the vehicle during in-gear deceleration and braking and uses the power to recharge the batteries.

Kia has announced it will introduce a mild-hybrid diesel engine to its range in the latter half of 2018.

The battery recovers energy from the diesel engine's crankshaft when the vehicle is decelerating or driving downhill.

Battery power can also be used to provide a new "Moving Stop & Start" function. The 48 volt generator recharges the vehicle's battery when the diesel engine is running. The MHSG can then seamlessly re-ignite the engine - in any situation - if the driver presses the throttle pedal. The battery will link into the vehicle's power system allowing a significant reduction in the size of the 12-volt starter battery and the starter motor, which will normally only be required for cold starts at low temperatures. If the battery has sufficient charge, the combustion engine turns off automatically during deceleration and braking. On most vehicles the battery will be located under the boot floor minimising any space penalty.

The EcoDynamics+ will be eventually adapted for use in petrol engines too, and is compatible with manual and automatic transmissions.

More detailed plans for the roll-out of its new mild-hybrid technology in the United Kingdom will be announced by Kia in due course.
