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.
