Ford Focus RS new hybrid transmission

The Ford Focus RS was supposed to be launched later this year, but the latest information shows that the brand's hot-hatch will be delayed until 2022. The reason seems to be the development of a new hybrid power system that reduces carbon dioxide emissions.

Initially, Ford engineers predicted a mild-hybrid motorization with a 48-volt electric system, but this measurement is not enough to keep the emissions level at the average level of 95 g / K. Therefore, it will be necessary to develop a new power system, this time we are talking about a full hybrid system.

"We expect our team of engineers to find a solution for the drivetrain, and this is not easy given the new pollution rules at the level," said a Ford representative at Autocar. "The mild-hybrid powertrain will be insufficient," the same source said.
It looks like Ford will be calling the upcoming Focus RS an optimized version of the hybrid powertrain on the Kuga. It is equipped with a 2.5-liter heat engine that runs in the Atkinson cycle. The total power of the hybrid system reaches 225 HP, power is transmitted to the wheels through the CVT box and an additional all-wheel drive system.

Of course, for the Ford Focus RS, engineers must strive for more, any result below 400 HP is considered unacceptable. An all-wheel drive system is also required. The latest generation of the Focus RS provided 350 HP, Power supplied by the 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine.http://fiatforum.lv/http://fiatforum.lv/
