The Korean company is yet to confirm which of the diesel engines offered in the Sportage will be mated to the mild hybrid system.

The new EcoDynamics+ powertrain will make its debut in the Sportage SUV during the second half of 2018, before being introduced to the Ceed small family auto in 2019. The new "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. In order to switch between "motor" and "generator" used by the inverter.

The MHSG is mounted in the engine bay and connected to the crankshaft by a belt. The all-new third-generation Kia Ceed will be the second among a range of Kia models to offer the new powertrain from 2019. In the 1st mode, when accelerating the auto gets up to 10 kW extra electricity, thereby facilitates the work of the main engine and as a outcome decreases the number of harmful emissions.

Kia is preparing to electrify its Sportage with the introduction of a 48V mild-hybrid version of the SUV set to be launched later this year. In "motor" mode, under acceleration, it uses battery charge to add torque to the engine to aid acceleration. When braking mode is activated the generator, which charges the battery from the kinetic energy. There'll be a mode for harnessing energy released during braking to recharge the 48v battery and a "moving stop and start" function that can switch off the engine as you're slowing down, before the auto has come to a complete halt. The MHSG can then quickly restart the engine the moment the driver presses the accelerator pedal. Charge from the 48V battery helps to start the engine in most conditions.

I grew up in a small city where people always said "d*ke" so I thought it was an okay thing to say but when I moved away I quickly learned it was offensive.

The 48V battery DC/DC converter enables the battery to connect to the vehicle's on-board power supply, reducing the reliance on the vehicle's 12V battery required to power the vehicle's ancillary electronics. On most vehicles the battery will be located under the boot floor minimising any space penalty.

Kia says the system can be adapted for front, rear and four-wheel drive vehicles, and will also be adapted for use with petrol engines. The powertrain will also be adapted for use in gasoline engines.

Kia will announce more detailed plans for the roll-out of its new mild-hybrid technology later this year.
