Hyundai continues to drive forward the electrification of its fleet of vehicles. After the Tucson 2.0 CRDi Mildhybrid, the Korean company will launch the second model of this series with 48-volt technology in the summer of 2019.
The Tucson 1.6 CRDi mild hybrid makes 130 kW / 136 hp. The average fuel consumption is Hyundai with 4.4 to 4.9 liters per 100 kilometers. The CO2 emissions are 117 to 130 g / km. According to the automaker, the system includes a 48-volt battery, a mild hybrid starter generator and a DC-DC converter that connects the conventional 12-volt electrical system to the 48-volt system.
And there is also a bit of wind in the back: The electric starter generator is to support the diesel engine with up to 12 kW and an additional torque of 55 Newton meters. If the driver gives just "moderate" gas, the 48-volt generator should relieve the diesel and use the energy from the 0.44 kWh large lithium-ion polymer battery, which is stowed under the boot floor.
Hyundai promises to reduce emissions and fuel consumption by up to seven percent according to WLTP, given 48-volt technology. The start-stop function is already activated at 30 km / h. So the diesel shuts down earlier than with conventional start-stop systems, say the engineers and call as an example from the daily traffic the rolling to a red traffic light.
