NO ... an electric Turbo doesn´t exist
, this people are misunderstandig the BMW patent. In this patent the E-Motor drives the Turbosystem directly and not by air like an electric supercharger !!!
There are only two alternatives
- I6 with 1 greater TwinScroll and "eTurbo" - could perhaps be quoted as TriTurbo by BMW terms.
- I6 with 2 TwinScrolls and "eTurbo" - quoted as Biturbo or perhaps OuadTurbo.
