Kia 48V Mild-Hybrid Diesel powertrain rolling out THIS year

Thanks to the setup's compact design, Kia don't have to redesign many of its current models to accommodate the system - and the first of those will be the Sportage SUV, which will get the powertrain by the end of this year. The system cuts Carbon dioxide emissions of the diesel engines, Kia quoting savings of four per cent on the new Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), and up to seven per cent via the current New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). The company claims thats integrating the EcoDynamics+ mild-hybrid system into the existing architecture "is relatively straightforward". 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. Because the MHSG integrates directly with the engine, driving the crankshaft via a belt, there is little need to repackage the engine bay. Restarting of the engine is carried out after pressing of the accelerator pedal. 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.

An electric motor adds 10kW - that's 13bhp - to boost performance under hard acceleration, but it also adds assistance under part throttle loads to take strain off the internal combustion engine.

New Facebook Data Leak Compromises 3 Million User Accounts
All of this data was then scooped up and the names removed before it was put on a website to share with other researchers. It added that "Cambridge Analytica is a data-driven marketing agency and does not manipulate political views".

The mild hybrid will be paired to both manual and automatic transmissions and will work as described on all types of drivetrain layouts - front-, rear- and all-wheel-drive.

Kia did not say how much range the Sportage will have with the engine switched off when using the system.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Jay Ajayi faces lawsuit, denies he shoved mansion owner
As a result of this request, the rep says Ajayi and his friend left the mansion a few days early, but still paid the full amount. The owner is calling the incident "battery" and told TMZ Sports that he had to call security to remove Ajayi from the property.

Kia is introducing EcoDynamics+ 48V mild-hybrid diesel engines to their United Kingdom range later this year in a bid to reduce emissions.

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. Future plans will see the launch of 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.
