Mild hybrid – The models with the lightweight hybrid – PHOTO GALLERY

That of the mild hybrid is a technology that is finding wide use among the models of mass automotive market: in addition to the new Fiat 500 and Panda Hybrid, among the most recent examples, let’s not forget the Volkswagen Golf 8 and the sister Seat Leon, not forgetting the Mazda 2 of our diary of this week. Cars that will be added to the already rich list of hybrid “to read” for sale on our market, which you can discover by exploring our gallery of images. All the details of the system Mhev, in addition, you can find them on Q Edu, our dossier that will answer all of your questions about the cars of the last generation, gift with Quattroruote March.

The operation. Compared to the traditional full, the car mild hybrid adopt a system more simple and cheap, based on a motor-generator low-voltage (also called reversible alternator), able to recover energy during deceleration and braking of the car and store it in a special battery. This energy is then released during the phases of acceleration, lightening the load of the engine and lowering fuel consumption, but is not able to move independently of the car: this aspect constitutes the main difference between the hybrid par excellence, and the hybrid “read”.

Same privileges. At least up to today, the mild hybrid have had the same regional incentives (tax exemption multi-annual from the stamp duty) and local (blue stripes free of charge, access to subsidized rent in the ZTL) of the other hybrid. Of the rest, until the end of 2019, the Italian bureaucracy, he described generically as hybrid vehicles, all cars aided by the electrification, apart from the fact that they could move with only the electric drive, even for short stretches of road, or less.

The intervention of Mit. Last December, however, the intervention of the ministry of Infrastructure and Transport has reclassified hybrid models according to three bands of CO2: Group I, which includes cars that emit up to 60 g/km; Group II, for emissions between 61 and 95 g/km; finally, Group III, which denotes the levels of CO2 above 95 g/km. In this last category, which should in the future enjoy fewer incentives, they are already today almost all of the Mhev.
