Kia shows off clutch-by-wire technology for mild-hybrid cars

Kia has revealed details of its new clutch-by-wire technology that allows use of a conventional manual transmission with mild-hybrid and start-stop systems. Modifying the traditional hydraulic system used to actuate clutches in manual cars – which is connected directly to the vehicle’s clutch pedal – Kia’s ‘intelligent manual transmission’ (iMT) places a module between the pedal and the hydraulics.

Kia e-Soul electric car converted to a commercial vehicle in Europe

Korean car maker Kia has added the electric e-Soul Cargo – an e-Soul city hatch converted for light commercial duties – to its line-up in the Netherlands, however it’s unlikely the model will see Australian showrooms. The Kia e-Soul Cargo trades its rear seats for a flat-floor with six tie-down anchors. A safety partition is also added between occupants and cargo, and a (presumably vinyl) wrap on the rear windows keeps cargo away from prying eyes.

VFACTS: April new-car sales down by 48.5 per cent, sharpest decline since records were kept

April new-car sales fell to their lowest level in more than 30 years – and recorded the sharpest month-to-month decline since records were kept – as the nation went into lockdown amid the coronavirus crisis. However, the decline of 48.5 per cent – to 38,926 vehicles reported as sold versus 75,550 for the same month last year – was not as dramatic as most other countries, which posted sales slides of between 80 and 98 per cent.
