Tofas started producing hybrid vehicles: Offering hybrid engine option of Egea

The number of factories producing hybrid vehicles in Turkey is increasing. Toyota, Ford Otosan, Hyundai Assan and Oyak Renault produce hybrids. Now Tofas has been added to these factories. Tofas will offer the hybrid engine option of Egea, produced in Bursa facilities, to the Turkish and world markets as of April.

The new hybrid version of Egea gets its high performance from the synergy of a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder turbo gasoline FireFly engine with a new generation 130 hp and 240 NM torque, and a 15 kW electric motor with a 48-Volt battery. In Egea Hybrid, BSG (Belt Start Generator) and 15KW electric motor support the 130 hp internal combustion engine. This hybrid technology offers “100% electric” silent starting, parking and all-electric driving. This increases efficiency as well as driving performance.

THERE IS AUTOMATIC GEAR

Along with the Egea Hybrid, the 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is also offered for sale for the first time in the Fiat brand. Egea Hybrid with 7-speed automatic transmission completes the 0-100 km acceleration in 9 seconds and reaches a consumption value of 4.7 lt (WLTP) per 100 km in city use. Hybrid technology in Egea ensures that 47% of the WLTP (Worldwide Harmonized Light-Duty Vehicles Test Procedure) cycle can be completed without starting the gasoline engine by completely shutting down the gasoline engine while driving, again for the first time in Fiat models.
