AMG Exploring Electric Turbocharging?

AMG has become the latest company to explore the concept of e-charging. AMG is interested in e-charging to replace displacement and produce power, faster...

It's about time they announced this to be on an AMG level, everyone knows how much better electric power delivery is especially with all the upcoming regulations on cars and the overall changing times.

sure but it adds a ridiculous amount of complexity. E-charging needs to run off a 48 volt system, which means we're looking at adding small but still heavy lith-ion batteries to run the car off. Replacing that won't be as conveneient as stopping at WalMart...

As cars become more computer-based parts will be more complex and harder to replace. That is just a fact of the future car industry.
