Revealed at the Paris Auto Show this gasoline engine bears the name of Kappa T-GDI, its precise displacement is 998cc, the first variant will offer 120hp and 172nm of torque next year in several models of the brand.
Designed specifically for hybrid vehicles, this gearbox incorporates an electric motor - the Sonata Hybrid will be the first to test it along with a new electric motor and an electric oil pump that eliminates hydraulic losses and increases efficiency.
This new technology will help develop a range of new hybrid and plug-ins including 100% electric.
This new management system has better thermal stability and more precise control of voltage and current for greater autonomy.
Finally, the BMS has 72 cells but requires only four high voltage connection (the rest is wireless) instead of 100 usually, reducing the overall weight.
Series production is expected within 2 years.
With these three technological advances, Hyundai proves its involvement in electrified powertrains where he wants to become a major player!
