Although it hasn't gone into detail as to what diesel engine will be part of the system, Kia has revealed that electrification will come in the form of a 48-volt battery powering a starter generator, allowing extended engine "off time" at lower speeds.
It features an electric motor that provides up to 10kW of extra power, reducing the diesel engine's workload during acceleration. It can even deliver a "Moving Stop-Start" if there's enough charge in the battery.
The company claims the new powertrain cuts Carbon dioxide emissions by up to 4.0 per cent under the Worldwide harmonised Light vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) and 7.0 per cent in the New European Driving Cycle when combined with a manual transmission. Kia plans to launch 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. The MHSG can then seamlessly re-ignite the engine - in any situation - if the driver presses the throttle pedal.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 has had a tumultuous development cycle, previously being announced and then later cancelled in 2011 . The post says nothing more about the upcoming sequel or game, but you can read it over right here if you want to.
Ford will halt all production of its popular F-Series pickup
Earlier this week Ford temporarily laid off 7,600 workers after a May 2 fire at Meridian Magnesium Products in MI . It also is more than four times the sales of its second best selling vehicle, the Escape SUV.
Kia says that the compact packaging of the system means that it'll be relatively straightforward to install in the brand's current model ranges.
The manufacturer also says that the system will have minimal impact on practicality, with the required 48V battery located beneath the boot floor. Because the MHSG integrates directly with the engine, driving the crankshaft via a belt, there is little need to repackage the engine bay.
Kia says the system is compatible with both manual and automatic transmissions, and with the former will reduce Carbon dioxide emissions by up to 4% in the upcoming WLTP test, and by 7% under the current NEDC test. Kia's new 'EcoDynamics+' powertrain reduces emissions by supplementing the diesel engine with a electric-powered generator that is powered by a 48-volt battery.
