|   Tuesday, October 21, 2014
Even if at Paris Motor Show Kia revealed its 4x4 Sorento, Kia promised to come up with the intent of its new concept of mild-hybrid system ahead of the future powertrain mass production technology Optima diesel-hybrid as its next generation model. The Optima hybrid with petrol engine was available before, but this Optima T-hybrid will be the first time seen in the market.

According to Kia Optima using lead-carbon battery offers more benefits over commonly used lithium-ion as it do not require the active cooling and gives better performance in cold weather.
Also, it gets easier for recycling at end of battery lifetime.

This T-hybrid concept car is still in development process and its production decision is been pending. It has been equipped with belt-driven newly developed starter generator and start/stop system, but still introduction for such a new technology is little long way to go. This future production is expected to be going on sale at the end of the next year.
