Hyundai Motor’S Sonata Hybrid Makes Global Debut

date

08-Aug-2019

Hyundai Motor launched Sonata Hybrid equipped with world’s first Active Shift Control (ASC) technology and solar roof system. The Sonata hybrid boasts hybrid exclusive design with enhanced dynamic elements. The hybrid model is equipped with unique characterizing cross-hole cascading grille, rear spoiler, and alloy wheel which not only accentuate the look and feel of an eco-friendly vehicle but also provide fine-tuned aerodynamics.

Hyundai Motor’s solar roof system makes its debut on the Sonata Hybrid. The system recharges the battery to increase travel distance while preventing unnecessary battery discharge. The solar roof system, with 6 hours of daily charging, is expected to increase travel distance by an extra 1,300km annually. Hyundai also applied world-first ASC technology to improve the dynamic driving experience and fuel economy of the vehicle.

ASC applies new control logic software to the Hybrid Control Unit (HCU), which then controls the electric motor to align the rotational speeds of the engine and transmission, ultimately reducing gear shift time by 30%. With the synchronization, ASC not only improves hybrid vehicle’s acceleration performance and fuel economy but also durability of the transmission by minimizing friction during a gear shift. Sonata is equipped with Smartstream G2.0 GDI HEV engine and 6-speed hybrid transmission. The engine’s power output is 152ps and maximum torque is 19.2kgf•m. The vehicle’s electric motor delivers a power output of 38kw and maximum torque of 205 Nm. Combined system power output is 195ps and vehicle also boasts combined fuel economy of 20.1km/l.

Continuing from Sonata, the hybrid has the latest high tech convenience features such as Digital Key.
Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist
Sonata is fitted with forwarding Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) which is capable of pedestrian detection, an advanced active safety feature that alerts drivers to emergency situations, and braking autonomously if required. Using front radar and front view camera sensors, FCA operates in three stages. Initially warning the driver visually and acoustically, it assesses the nature of the collision danger and can apply increasing amounts of braking force to avoid a collision or minimize damage when a collision is unavoidable. The system is activated when a vehicle, pedestrian or cyclist is sensed in front of the car.

Lane Follow Assist
Lane Follow Assist automatically adjusts steering to help keep the vehicle centred in its lane of travel. LFA can keep the vehicle centred at speeds between 0 and 145 kilometres per hour on both highways and city streets.
