Hyundai and Kia held the 2019 Hyundai-Kia International Powertrain Conference at the Rolling Hills Hotel (Hwaseong, Gyeonggi-do) on Tuesday. The conference, held under the theme of “Innovation of Powertrain Technologies for Sustainable Moblilty”, introduces the next generation powertrain that Hyundai and Kia Motors are introducing to secure future competitiveness.

This year’s event will attract more than 1,300 people from the world’s leading powertrain companies, including Bosch, Continental, Delphi Technologies, Denso, Magna, Male, Schaeffler and Valeo, as well as domestic and international academia, related societies and research institutes .

At the Hyundai-Kia International Powertrain Conference, the company will present 57 topics in seven areas, including not only the latest technology exhibition, but also engine, transmission, exhaust post-processing, eco-friendly cars and motorization, noise and vibration, powertrain virtual development.

In particular, this event will introduce new powertrains such as Smartstream G3.5 T-GDi, Smartstream D3.0, Smartstream wet 8-speed DCT, which will be applied to Hyundai and Kia Motors sequentially from the second half of this year, starting with the Genesis luxury brand models GV80 and G80.

Hyundai-Kia Motors has been striving to develop powertrain technology to continuously secure global technological leadership in the engine and transmission sectors, which are the foundation of automobile manufacturing technology. 

As a result, ‘Smartstream’ has significantly improved performance in terms of fuel efficiency combustion improvement, exhaust gas reduction, engine friction reduction compared to previous powertrains, thereby responding to global fuel economy and environmental regulations that are intensifying.

The Smartstream G3.5 T-GDi is an engine with maximum power of 380 hp (ps) and maximum torque of 54 kgf · m. Combustion system improvement. New fuel injection system and new cooling system technology. Through this, Hyundai said they have secured the world’s highest level of competitiveness.

In particular, the Smartstream G3.5 T-GDi is equipped with dual fuel injection technology that combines the advantages of the GDi system that directly injects fuel into the combustion chamber and the MPi system that injects the inlet port of the combustion chamber. In addition, the water-cooled intercooler is applied to increase the unique responsiveness of the turbocharger, and at the same time, it is capable of dynamic performance under various environmental conditions.

Also for the first time, the new inline six-cylinder diesel engine ‘Smartstream D3.0’ were showcased, with a maximum output of 278 horsepower (ps), maximum torque 60kgf · m. This engine is 32kg lighter and friction is reduced by water-cooled technology Intercooler. Fuel economy and exhaust optimization technology such as complex EGR and SCR system is applied.

The Smartstream Wet 8-speed DCT, along with two new engines, will be combined with the Smartstream G2.5 T-GDi engine and the Smartstream D2.2 engine to be applied to a wide range of vehicles, including high-performance cars . An optimized eight-stage layout, high-efficiency wet double clutch, electric oil pump and accumulator, DCT-specific control logic, and new technologies that maximize power transmission efficiency and responsiveness .

An official from Hyundai and Kia said, “This international powertrain conference is a meaningful place to introduce Hyundai and Kia’s new engines ‘Smartstream G3.5 T-GDi’ and ‘Smartstream D3.0’ to related companies and academia. ” “I hope that the International Powertrain Conference will be a stepping stone to innovation and solve the industry’s concerns for sustainable growth and future competitiveness of the automotive industry .”
