Kia 48V Mild-Hybrid Diesel powertrain rolling out THIS year
17 May, 2018, 03:10 | Author: Brooke Harris
The technology includes a compact 48-volt battery under the boot floor, charged using energy recuperated through a motor-generator connected to the engine's crankshaft. Kia plans to launch 16 advanced powertrain vehicles by 2025, including five new hybrids, five plug-in hybrids, five battery-electric vehicles and - in 2020 - a new fuel-cell electric vehicle.
In addition to this the system can also be integrated into existing engine and powertrain architects without it impacting the packaging or practicality of it and will not need recharging. Unlike a fully electric vehicle, Kia's mild-hybrid powertrain does not require plug-in recharging.
Paired with the brand's Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) active emissions control technology, the system helps reduce Carbon dioxide emissions by up to 4 percent on the new WLTP, and up to 7 percent on the NEDC, thus enabling "Kia to offer cleaner diesel engines", in their own words. The powertrain will also be adapted for use in petrol engines. After the diesel mild hybrid's introduction, Kia will use the technology in a gasoline-powered vehicle. Due to the fact that the engine can now lean more heavily on its battery when the engine is shut down or generator is switched off, components like the starter motor and 12-volt battery powering ancillary electronics can be downsized to take up less space in the engine bay.
With the negativity surrounding diesel engines, the new hybrid system could be a way for the fuel type's future to be prolonged, by reducing emissions.
The battery power can also restart the engine in any situation, assuming there's enough charge. This allows the internal combustion engine to automatically turn off during braking and in-gear deceleration, whereas the MHSG can re-ignite it whenever the driver presses the throttle.
The system is compatible with both manual and automatic transmissions vehicles, and could be adapted for front or rear wheel drive, or all-wheel drivetrain configurations.
