The model is equipped with a six-cylinder engine coupled with a traditional exhaust-driven turbocharger with a 48-volt electric compressor.
The mechanically driven supercharger supplies the combustion chambers up to engine speeds of 2400rpm, at which point the exhaust-driven turbocharger reaches full effectiveness and provides extra boost in the higher revs.
The mechanically-driven supercharger supplies the combustion chambers up to engine speeds of 2,400rpm, at which point the exhaust-driven turbocharger reaches full-effectiveness and provides extra boost in the higher rev range.
The supercharger is a mechanically driven pump that forces air into the engine, which on this engine runs on its own until you get to 2,400rpm, at which point the exhaust-driven turbocharger joins in, to deliver more power until 3,500rpm when the supercharger disconnects and the turbo carries on alone.
