THE Kia Motor Company cut emissions across its range in the years through the use of smaller turbocharged engines and a range of powertrains including full EVs and

The Korean car-maker is working the recently announced European CO2 target of 95g/km by 2021, one later than it was originally set

At the Geneva motor show week, Kia announced a number of to assist in cutting emissions as as improving performance, including a new efficient seven-speed dual transmission (DCT) and a mild system that reduces CO2 by 15 per while boosting power by 20 per

The show also marked the debut of the company s first full electric vehicle, the EV that is powered by a 27kWh lithium-ion polymer battery with an 81kW/284Nm electric

Speaking with GoAuto at the show, Hyundai Motor European Technical Centre manager Michael Winkler it was not just one thing that reduce emissions across the Kia but a series of measures.

I think items will be the key, he More efficient powertrains. reduction would be nice but the mass would also be an as comfort items have over the years, so mass is a and of course aerodynamics is an item we to cover.

Mr Winkler said Kia is not just petrol-powered engines, but all powertrains in a bid to the entire fleet more friendly.

If we talk about 95 we have to get down every in fuel efficiency. Otherwise it not be possible. So we will improve all engines, we will improve all engines, we introduce electrification, as with our mild hybrid in Geneva.

We will see full vehicles as we offer in the Optima, we see Carens as announced during the conference and we will see full vehicles like the Soul. will not be just one engine is to be excellent, there will not be one There will be a wide of engines and technologies we will see in the few years.

The mild hybrid system a 48-volt lead-carbon battery a small electric motor that it can be with either petrol or engines, and Mr Winkler confirmed the technology could eventually out to a number of smaller Kia models, could include the next-gen of the Cerato.

The configuration here (at with the start-stop generator, charger as an option, I would say is more for D-Segment (mid-size), so level. If you take out the supercharger is possible, you can also use it in smaller So the technology itself is not fixed to a it is in the end a question of package and costs.

Mr Winkler said Kia believes in downsized turbocharged engines as a to reduce emissions and cut fuel and he highlighted the 1.0-litre three-cylinder TGDi unit that at last year s Geneva as an example.

While in Europe would be a standard powertrain for models such as the Cee d or Cerato, Mr said the turbo-triple could be used in the B-segment , suggesting a version of the Rio was a possibility.

Of course, we have the 1.0-litre turbocharged for C-segment that be the standard powertrain but in terms of of course it is the same engine smaller displacement you get a higher range.

The more efficient DCT roll out in Kia s next-gen models the coming years, and Mr Winkler he believed the company would not the performance issues German Volkswagen had experienced with its own DSG transmission.

We are confident, also for all DCT we the seven-year warranty (in Europe), so we to be convinced that the technology is to be able to bring it to market, he

What we observed is journalists about our competitors, that is of our job so we have to take care of which we see on our competitors as negative.
