Automakers keep downsizing their engines to meet fuel economy and emissions standards. But smaller engines need some sort of boost to provide the power that drivers need and want. That’s why turbocharging and supercharging have become so popular. Now comes the next step, electric boost. E-turbos and e-superchargers are about to hit the market, and we have an experimental Lincoln MKZ with an e-supercharger in the studio.
