Mercedes-AMG: Electric turbos coming soon

Mercedes-AMG will look to electric turbochargers in its next-generation models, as it looks for new ways to up power without sacrificing efficiency. Although the current range of AMG 53 models rely on an electric compressor to drive the turbocharger at low engine speeds in a move to bust lag, the range-topping AMG 63 range blends a 4.0-litre V8 engine with conventional turbos.

The MKC replacement will also go head-to-head with the Cadillac XT4 in its home market. Visually, the Corsair looks like a miniature version of the Aviator, Nautilus and Navigator. Up front there’s a smaller interpretation of Lincoln’s corporate grille, separating thin LED headlights and horizontal daytime-running lights.
