Η Hyundai ανακοίνωσε και επίσημα ότι κατασκευάσει τον 1.600αρη turbo κινητήρα. Ο κινητήρας είναι της οικογένειας Gamma, έχει ονομαστεί 1.6 T-GDI, πληροί τα στάνταρ του Euro 5 και ULEV-2 (Ultra-Low Emission Vehicle για την Αμερική) και αποδίδει έως 204 άλογα. Ο 1.600αρης turbo κινητήρας φορά ένα twin-scroll turbo με intercooler, διαθέτει σύστημα άμεσου ψεκασμού και διπλό μεταβλητό χρονισμό βαλβίδων. Θα αποδίδει από 140 έως 204 άλογα στις 6.000 σ.α.λ με 265 Nm ροπής στις 1.750 Nm ροπής. Η Hyundai αναφέρει ότι τα νούμερα αυτά θα διαφέρουν ελαφρώς ανάλογα με την αγορά.

Ο κινητήρας θα τοποθετηθεί σε πολλά μοντέλα της Hyundai και της Kia, (τον έχουμε δει ήδη σε spy φωτογραφίες πάνω στο Veloster) με το πρώτο αυτοκίνητο που θα τον φορά να κυκλοφορεί στα μέσα του 2012. Συνολικά η Hyundai ξόδεψε 44.36 εκατ. ευρώ για την ανάπτυξη του μέσα στους 52 μήνες που ασχολείται με αυτόν.

Τέλος οι Κορεάτες ανακοίνωσαν και έναν νέο 2.0-λιτρο τετρακύλινδρο πετρελαιοκινήτηρα, τον R-2.0. Αποδίδει 150 άλογα με 382 Nm ροπής και πληροί τα στάνταρ του Euro 6. Και αυτός θα τοποθετηθεί σε πολλά μοντέλα της Hyundai και της Kia, όπως τα ΙΧ-35, Sportage και Santa Fe. Περισσότερες λεπτομέρειες μπορείς να βρεις στο δελτίο τύπου που ακολουθεί.

Hyundai Motor Group Unveils Advanced Powertrains

– Hyundai showcases Gamma 1.6 T-GDI and Euro6 R-2.0 diesel engines

– Some 1,000 world-class powertrain experts and academics attend

Hyundai Motor Group will host ‘The 11th Hyundai-Kia International Powertrain Conference’ between October 19 – 20 to unveil the Group’s latest powertrain technologies and discuss industry trends with world-class experts.

In line with this year’s slogan of ‘Innovation of Powertrain Technology Through Collaboration,’ the conference was designed to offer industry experts an opportunity to discuss next-generation powertrain development directions and share innovative technologies, in response to tougher environmental policies worldwide. The annual conference was held at Rolling Hills Hotel, located near the Hyundai-Kia Motors R&D Center in Korea.

“Due to stricter environmental regulations and policies that vary from nation to nation, competition in the development of powertrains and other core technologies is intensifying,” said Woong-Chul Yang, Hyundai Motor Co. Vice Chairman. “Hyundai Motor will accelerate its efforts to develop future powertrains that feature high-performance and eco-friendly engines and transmissions.”

At the conference, Hyundai Motor showcased two innovative powertrains that were fully developed in-house: The Gamma 1.6 T-GDI engine and Euro6 R-2.0 diesel engine.

The Gamma 1.6 T-GDI engine, which was developed over a period of 52 months and cost 69.5 billion won, achieves the best performance figures in its class where the competition is the toughest. The engine beats its formidable rivals, boasting a maximum output of 204hp and torque of 27.0kgf.m at 6,000 rpm and 1,750 rpm, respectively.

Moreover, by remarkably cutting down on exhaust emissions, the engine meets California’s ULEV-2 (Ultra-Low Emission Vehicle) standard, known as the most stringent, as well as Euro 5 standards.

In order to maximize fuel efficiency and performance, the engine uses an exhaust manifold integrated turbocharger with twin scroll, air guided intercooler, direct fuel injection system and dual CVVT, while a bed plate and a serpentine auxiliary belt were adopted to enhance engine reliability.

The Euro6 R-2.0 diesel engine, aimed to satisfy the next-generation Euro6 regulations by applying new technologies, such as low-pressure exhaust gas recirculation, was also introduced during the conference. It delivers world-class performance with a maximum output of 150ps and maximum torque of 39.0kgf.m without sacrificing its eco-friendliness.

As required by new regulations, the Euro6 reduced Nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions by 56 percent, compared to Euro5. By introducing the Euro6 R-2.0 diesel engine, Hyundai Motor is expected to lead the eco-friendly passenger car diesel engine technology field, satisfying the standards more than two years ahead of their implementation.

Hyundai Motor also displayed its motor-integrated six-speed front wheel drive automatic transmission equipped in the Sonata Hybrid, as well as the gasoline Theta T-GDI engine, gasoline Kappa bi-fuel engine, diesel R-2.2 2 stage turbo-charger and the six-speed double clutch (DCT) to enhance participants’ understanding of new technology trends.

Some 1,000 world-class powertrain experts and academics participated in the conference, including members from Bosch, Continental, Delphi, Magna Powertrain and Denso.

Throughout the two-day conference, some 30 companies will release 50 theses in six sessions, including presentations on next-generation gasoline technology, exhaust and after-treatment technology, diesel innovation technology, exhaust reducing technology, high efficiency transmission and improving driving experiences.
