Sample Pic Kia launches first-ever global hybrid car Impressive economy: The Kia Optima Hybrid showcases the latest technical innovations. ' It's a very advanced hybrid car, yet simpler and less complicated than some that we have seen come onto the market. ' Todd McDonald Motors' New Zealand general manager Kia Motors is putting its first-ever global hybrid model on sale with the introduction this month of the Optima Hybrid in the United States. The Optima Hybrid employs a Kia-developed powertrain that includes several innovations, such as advanced lithium polymer bat- teries that will not need replacing for up to 10 years or 240,000km. It makes use of a full parallel hybrid system'' where the 2.4-litre GDi direct injection petrol engine is mated to a small electric motor and drives the front wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission -- without the traditional torque converter. A special clutch is fitted bet- ween the engine and motor, enabling the petrol engine to be de-coupled from the powertrain so that Optima can be operated in zero-emission, full-electric drive mode from standstill up to 100kmh (reached in a brisk 9.2 seconds) or in blended electric- petrol mode at any speed. If the electrical load is low when the car comes to a stop, the engine shuts off to eliminate idle fuel con- sumption and emissions. Toge- ther, the 2.4-litre petrol engine and 40kW electric motor produce a combined power output of 154kW and 265Nm of torque and when it's running on electric alone produces no emissions. Overall combined emissions are estimated to be 99 grams of CO2/kilometre. Kia says the system's configur- ation does not require a high- capacity electric motor and gener- ator, thus saving weight and cost. The lower weight, coupled with the hybrid drive and the Optima's remarkably low CD 0.26 aerody- namic shape, all help to improve the new model's fuel economy by an impressive 40.7 per cent to 6.2L/100km in the combined cycle. This is aided by lowering the car 5mm and including an active air flap'' in the front grille, smooth under-floor panels, low-drag wheels and low rolling resistance tyres. Currently the Optima Hybrid is only available in left-hand drive, but if it does become available to right-hand-drive markets, Kia Motors' New Zealand general manager Todd McDonald says he would be very interested in con- sidering it for this country. It's a very advanced hybrid car, yet simpler and less complicated than some that we have seen come onto the market,'' he says. Compared with nickel-metal hydride batteries used in some other hybrids, lithium polymer batteries weigh 20 to 30 per cent less, occupy 40 per cent less vol- ume and are 10 per cent more efficient. They also hold their charge for 25 per cent longer than nickel-metal hydride batteries and that's one reason why they have such a long lifespan. It's yet another example of how Kia Motors is developing advanced technologies that really do make a beneficial difference to our customers and also help us to reduce our environmental impact.''
