Some manufacturers have begun to fit their new cars with electric superchargers because they are more efficient and powerful.
Most cars on the market use superchargers and turbochargers for increased fuel efficiency and better performance. Let’s consider what makes electric superchargers better than the traditional options.
An internal combustion engine (ICE) produces power by burning air and fuel. The faster this process happens, the more power it delivers. A supercharger’s job is to add more air into the engine than is available, allowing for supercharged power.
Electric superchargers combine the efficiency of superchargers and turbos with a small electric air compressor and a powerful motor. This power makes delivery smoother than the old methods. When the system is not in use, the electric system turns off to save energy.
