It is likely to be available with a 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol engine and an Integrated Starter Generator
Mechanically the Puma's highlight is a mild hybrid system that features a starter generator
that assists the 1.5-litre three-cylinder Ecoboost engine in accelerating the car.
The mild hybrid powertrain comprises a 48-volt lithium-ion polymer battery, a mild hybrid starter generator
, an LDC converter and an inverter.
Mercedes calls the electric-enhanced six-cylinder the EQ Boost Starter Generator
, and while it helps save gas (it's capable of averaging almost 30 miles per gallon), it also helps the CLS accelerate just as quickly as the V-8-powered (but thirstier) 2018 CLS.
The centrepiece is the new electrified 3.0 litre engine with twin charging, 320 kW (435 hp) output and an EQ Boost starter generator
For the technically-minded the electrical wizardry comprises a 0.44 kW/h 48-volt lithium-ion battery, a mild hybrid starter generator
(MHSG), a low voltage DC/DC converter (LDC) and an inverter.
The CorePower System on the PC-24 features an Induction Starter Generator
System and Electronic Circuit Breaker Units (ECBUs).
Enhanced starter and integrated starter generator
are more cost-effective and fuel efficient clean energy technologies as compared to direct starter and belt-driven alternator starter technologies.

Targeting a 10 percent increase in fuel economy, the Optima Hybrid replaces the previous generation's 2.4-liter engine with an efficient and compact 2.0-liter GDI four cylinder - estimated at 154 horsepower - coupled with a hybrid starter generator
and tied to an upgraded, smooth-shifting six-speed transmission.
Oswego, IL, October 23, 2015 --(PR.com)-- Goodrich Control Systems DC Starter Generator
part number 23088 Series is installed on models of the DHC-8-100, 200, 300 Series and DHC-7-100, 101, 102, 103 aircraft.
The 2014 Optima Hybrid features carryover refinements for smoothness and drivability, including a robust 47 HP electric traction motor, a strong Hybrid Starter Generator
(HSG) and a powerful 47 kW lithium polymer battery.
