Hyundai showcased the Hyundai Tucson based 48V Hybrid technology concept during the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.
This technology is a very intelligent and cost efficient way to cut fuel consumption and CO2 emissions significantly.
The Tucson 48V Hybrid Concept, when compared to a full hybrid system, delivers similar efficiency, for only a quarter of the cost.
This concept is powered by a 2.0-litre diesel motor that produces 136 PS and an electric motor that produces 14 PS. Combined, the concept delivers 150 PS, which is a 10 percent boost in performance, while CO2 emissions are still kept low.
This combo also delivers 413 Nm of torque to the wheels through a six-speed manual transmission.
The Hybrid Starter Generator (HSG) supports the diesel engine with its additional output and enables the ISG to restart the engine with almost no noise or vibration and acts as a generator during deceleration to recharging the 48-volt lithium-ion battery.
This hybrid system weighs very less and adds just 20 kg to the vehicle's overall weight.
