Audi Develop New Turbo

“Audi also revealed that the new SQ5, which is expected in 2017, will use a 48V electric system powering an electric compressor running in tandem with a single exhaust-driven turbocharger, rather than the twin turbos of the current SQ5.

 

That’s in the contrast to the recently launched SQ7 on which the electric compressor had its debut, where two exhaust-driven turbos work alongside the electrically powered compressor.

 

Apart from lag reduction, the deletion of a second exhaust-driven turbo cuts heat loss from the exhaust system, in turn benefiting fuel efficiency, which relies on high temperatures for optimal results.”
