AMG to introduce e-turbo engines

AMG to introduce e-turbo engines

The AMG range of vehicles has adopted forced induction technology off late. In a new development AMG powertrain boss Jochen Martin Schmid has disclosed that the company is considering electric turbochargers for its performance range of vehicles.

Schmid, speaking to Drive, said,“There are many companies looking into this technology right now and it is something we will investigate at some time to see the benefits."

However, Schmid said, AMG is just thinking about the technology at this point without divulging further details.

One of the forerunners to use this technology in production vehicles is Audi which recently showcased the RS5 TDI concept with e-turbochargers. However, the electric turbocharger may see mass application when Audi launches the next-gen Q7 in a couple of years. India will get its share of this technology derived from Formula 1 when the new Audi Q7 hits Indian market, unless some other manufacturer decides to beat them to it first. 

The AMG range may get more powerful and also reduce emissions with the introduction of this technology. With almost all AMG vehicles now using turbocharged engines, this technology might see a wide application in their range.
