Today and Tomorrow
Craig Balis on E-Turbo technology and future of Hybrid vehicles at IAA 2019
Garrett’s E-Turbo delivers superior performance, fuel economy and emissions by integrating ultra-high-speed electric motors and power electronics into the turbocharger, while also providing energy recuperation to the vehicle’s electrical system.
The E-Turbo uses a small electric motor on the shaft to spool up the turbo and provide immediate boost from idle, eliminating felt acceleration lag time, and generating electricity and recharging the hybrid battery.
The technologies will be used to meet regional, national and local fuel economy and air quality targets.
