So, what is Mild Hybrid? Mild Hybrid (MHEV) A small electric motor that helps improve efficiency. Mild Hybrid vehicles have two sources of power that work together – a conventional engine and a battery -driven electric motor. The electric motor does not power the car. It simply assists it.

Mild Hybrid efficiency, it is assisted by an electric motor. At low speeds, or when stationary, the internal combustion engine can switch itself off and the 48V starter-generator seamlessly restarts it when needed. The separate 48V Li-Ion battery is automatically recharged by regenerative braking during coasting and braking. There is no requirement to connect the battery to a power source.

Fuel Efficiency. Mild Hybrid powertrains can be a cost-effective way to join the electric revolution. They are best suited for people who do a lot of shorter journeys, especially around town and at lower average speeds. Making it the perfect vehicle for taxi drivers
