What we know so far is that the PROTON X90 will be powered by a 1.5-liter turbo-charged petrol fed engine complemented by a 48V belt-starter generator (BSG) integrated on the Front-End Accessory Drive (FEAD) of the engine, a 48V-12 DCDC converter, 48V lithium-ion battery module and battery management system (BMS). Plus, a recuperation braking system and a hybrid module control system.

Information sourced from Geely’s technical website mentions the following about this next generation petrol fed engine.

The integration of the mild hybrid technology allows the vehicle to have various electric vehicle functions. Among these are:

• Intelligent Start & Stop – The system cuts the ignition when engine power is not needed such as during traffic or waiting time, coasting or when braking.
• Smart Sailing – The engine automatically turns off during coasting at a high speed, provided that the power is sufficient.
• Energy Recycle – The vehicle captures energy using regenerative braking. During braking or decelerating, the car’s kinetic energy is being converted and being stored as electrical energy in the batteries.
• As the global automotive market gears towards a radical technological and economic transformation, Geely vows to offer more value in the models it will introduce to be at par with both the local and global standards.

Driving into the new future trend, PROTON will launch this MHEV technology very soon with a model that can be considered as Geely Coolray’s (Proton X50) ‘big brother’.

Coming from the Coolray’s (Proton X50) market success, PROTON and Geely are very confident that this new SUV will also be welcomed in the country’s market given the exciting styling, luxurious interior, and smart vehicle technology that has been incorporated in it.

This is definitely a vehicle worth waiting for.
