The new EcoDynamics+ setup offers mild-hybrid technology with a 48V electrical system that supplements the diesel engine - taking over during acceleration and extending the engine's "off time" with a starter generator. It will be followed by the third-generation Kia Ceed in the early months of next year.
Kia is introducing EcoDynamics+ 48V mild-hybrid diesel engines to their United Kingdom range later this year in a bid to reduce emissions. The roll-out of diesel mild-hybrid technology will contribute to the brand's global efforts to improve whole-fleet fuel efficiency.
The Korean brand's new drivetrain adds a starter motor which doubles as a generator and power supply to deliver 10kW of assistance to the diesel engine in a move which it claims will reduce Carbon dioxide emissions by up to 4% on the new Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), and 7% on the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). When coasting, or braking, it switches to "generator" mode to recharge the battery. 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 compact nature of the technology means that integrating the EcoDynamics+ mild-hybrid system into existing vehicle architecture is relatively straightforward. On most vehicles the battery will be located under the boot floor minimising any space penalty. Because the MHSG integrates directly with the engine, driving the crankshaft via a belt, there is little need to repackage the engine bay. And because the 48V battery connects to the car's on-board power supply it means a smaller 12v battery and starter motor.
