Mitsubishi adds more Innovation to the list

AS&G – Auto Stop and Go

AS&G idling stop automatically stops and starts the engine when the vehicle stops and starts.

As you can see in the above image, AS&G idling stop automatically stops and starts the engine when the vehicle stops and starts.

Idling Stop is a technology that automatically stops the engine when the vehicle stops. and automatically starts the engine when the vehicle starts moving again, for example when stopped and waiting at a traffic light. By turning off the engine when the car is in use but not moving, fuel economy is improved and CO2 is also reduced as exhaust gasses are eliminated when the engine is off. It works automatically and there is no difference between driving a car with AS&G and a car without it.

ACL – Active Cornering Lights

ACL provides support for night driving by additionally illuminating the direction in which the vehicle is moving in accordance with the steering angle.

35W halogen bulbs are used in the cornering lights. The system links with the turn signal light at speeds of 40km/h or less and also links with the angle of the steering wheel to additionally illuminating the direction in which the vehicle is moving. ACL makes driving at dark intersections, curves, etc. safer.

ACD  – Active Center Differential

The corporate philosophy of Mitsubishi Motors includes “Driving Pleasure” and “Toughness & Safety.” Our Integrated Vehicle Dynamics Control System which controls both the driving force and braking force of the four wheels has made new-generation driving possible.

The ACD is a system that electronically controls the differential limit between the front and rear wheels to distribute an appropriate driving force to the four wheels. The system sets the base driving force distribution to 50:50 and controls the differential limit between the front and rear wheels from “Free” to “Locked 4WD.” It makes precise control a reality by using information about the wheel speed, the steering wheel angle, the engine torque, the brake pressure, and the yaw rate sensor, and combines a high level of traction performance and steering response adapted to the driving conditions.

Mitsubishi to launch new MIVEC engine

Mitsubishi to launch new MIVEC engine (Mitsubishi Innovative Valve timing Electronic Control System – MIVEC), which is the general name for all engines equipped with the variable valve timing mechanism developed by Mitsubishi Motors.

Mitsubishi Motors has been focusing for a long time on technologies to control valve timing and amount of lift with the aim of achieving high power output, low fuel consumption, and low exhaust emissions. The MIVEC engine was first used in 1992 in the Mirage, and since then Mitsubishi Motors has been adding a number of enhancements to produce an even better performance. In the Outlander launched in 2005, the Delica D:5 and the Galant Fortis launched in 2007, Mitsubishi Motors adopted a mechanism that continuously and optimally controls the intake and exhaust valve timing.
Now, the all-new MIVEC engine controls both intake valve timing and amount of valve lift at the same time, all the time.
p1

The all-new MIVEC engine with a simple SOHC structure is used for the Japanese-market GALANT FORTIS and GALANT FORTIS SPORTBACK from 2011, OUTLANDER from 2012.

ALL-NEW MIVEC SOHC 16 VALVE (4J1 model)

It reduces pumping losses by adjusting the intake air volume by variating intake smart-mivec_im_01valve lift stroke as well as throttle valves, improving fuel efficiency. This improves fuel consumption including improvement of combustion stability through optimization of the combustion chamber structure and reduction of friction through optimization of the piston structure.

With simple SOHC structure, engine performance is equal to the previous MIVEC engine In addition the AS&G (Automatic Stop And Go) idling-stop system achieves a smooth stop-and-start with minimal vibration along with reduced fuel consumption at restart due to the reduction of air intake volume by the all-new MIVEC system

Features of the All-new MIVEC System – 1

Minimizing pumping loss contributes to very high fuel efficiency!

With a conventional gasoline engine, the intake air volume is controlled by a throttle valve, increasing the air intake resistance when a piston descends. MIVEC engine restrains this air intake resistance by controlling the intake valve lift as well as the valve opening/closing timing simultaneously and continuously. Thus it improves fuel consumption by reducing pumping loss during intake.

smart-mivec_im_02

Features of the All-new MIVEC system – 2

The all-new MIVEC engine’s SOHC achieves continuous variable valve timing and lift!

The all-new continuously-variable valve system make valve lift stroke, the length of valve-opening time and valve opening timing continuously and simultaneously variable through a control shaft (see figure below).

smart-mivec_im_03

With this mechanical interlock structure, cooperative control of hydraulic variable valve timing phase system becomes unnecessary. Accordingly the new MIVEC system can be adopted to the simple SOHC structure.
Consequently the new MIVEC realizes light weight and compact new engine. The all-new variable-valve structure simply adds an oscillating cam, a support shaft, and a center rocker arm to the conventional SOHC’s rotating cam, rocker arm and rocker shaft. The range of motion of the oscillating cam is made continuously variable by moving the fulcrum position of the center rocker arm through rotation of the control shaft (intake rocker shaft) by an electric motor.

2017 Kia Picanto Revealed!!!

Overview

The third-generation Picanto will be presented in European specification at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show this coming March. Kia has unveiled the third-generation Picanto city car to take on the new Holden Spark. Now in its third generation, the Picanto has adopted more sporty styling inspired by Kia’s potent Ceed GT and Pro Ceed GT models. 

picanto-overview

The profile borrows much from the larger Rio, with a simple and subtle look, while the rear of the new Picanto will build on its predecessor’s hooked tail-light design. In GT-Line form, the 2017 Kia Picanto boasts a sporty chromatic identity and a body kit inspired by hot hatchbacks.

Interior

The interior exhibits a vibrant design dominated by oval-shaped outer air vents, a neatly integrated touchscreen-based infotainment system, and two-tone part-leather seats. Leather (or perhaps synthetic hide) adorns much of the furnishings including seats, steering wheel, door arm rests and gear gaiter complete with red flashes or stitching.

picanto-int

The interior changes are headlined by a new young audience-targeting central touchscreen which appears to offer access to a number of services including navigation, while the surrounding hardware has been modernized with a symmetrical look and digital control panel.

Styling

The main changes will mostly be seen up front where the firm’s latest signature ‘tiger’ grille will be found flanked by new headlight clusters with bold LED daytime running lights. Regarding technology and safety, the highlights come in the form of a more rigid chassis and body, Torque Vectoring Brake Based , Autonomous Emergency Brake, and a knee airbag for the driver. 

styling

The theme continues into the cabin, where the Picanto will feature a Rio-like ‘floating’ look for its main display screen – still a popular trend across the market. The Picanto has a 15mm longer wheelbase compared with the current model.The GT Line model features a bright red trim piece from almost every angle.

Engine

The replacement Picanto is expected to use heavily revised versions of the existing 1.0-litre and 1.25-litre petrol engines. Kia’s excellent 1.0-litre turbocharged, three-cylinder engine used in the Cee’d may also be a possibility, but whether Kia decides to fit the 98hp variant into the Picanto is yet to be confirmed.

2017-kia-picanto-engine

Power for the new Kia Picanto is likely to come from the same 65bhp 1.0-litre three-cylinder and 85bhp 1.25-litre four-cylinder engines, while low emissions and strong fuel economy will give the newcomer a fighting chance in the hard-fought city car class.
