Volkswagen will put on sale the Golf course micro-hybrid in 2018

that read the Volkswagen Group with the emissions of their diesel engines will be remembered (bad for them though) for many years. The Dieselgate has put in knowledge public the mechanical driven by this fuel have a little bit of clean so that in a few years (if everything goes according to plan) could be leaving the engine bay of our cars. However, this also poses a problem, and quite large, for brands, since they have made large investments in this type of thrusters and now it will be very complicated to amortize.

As proof of this, we have the same Volkswagen. The German conglomerate has invested a lot of money (we don’t know if it will be true or not) in their mechanical diesel, but as it is not cost effective to make small engines has thought to change them for models that are driven by blocks gas, which in turn are assisted by small electric motors. This is what you are doing Suzuki with its Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki but taking it to an extreme greater.

In this way, we would have that the next models young (Golf included) will leave the block diesel 1.6 TDi and will incorporate a mechanical gasoline supported by a hybrid system supported by a battery of 48 volts. According to Herbert Diess, head of Volkswagen (as a mark) the next generation of the Golf will leave behind the blocks diesel small and will employ this technology to reduce fuel consumption and improve performance.

As has dropped Diess the next Golf could used as a motor gasoline base the new 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine. He could dock a small electric motor with about 15 to 20 bhp of power which would employ a power system of 48 volts to provide assistance to the gasoline engine at times of acceleration, as well as to control the load levels of the engine.

By now we know that the next iteration of the Golf should get to the streets in the year 2020. What we descuadra a little is that this mechanical micro-hybrid has been announced for 2018 and therefore would arrive before the model. However also not surprising to us because we could see a preview of their qualities in the Golf outgoing to then appear in the new fine-tuned and improved.

time to Time.
