Volvo’s turbocharged and supercharged Drive-E 2.0-liter engine is the starting point, but the mechanical supercharger has been stripped away, and an electric supercharger and an additional turbo have been strapped on. Instead of using exhaust gases to get their spool on, the turbos are fed compressed air from the electrically powered compressor/supercharger, which eliminates turbo lag, according to Volvo. Also part of the package is a new dual fuel pump that delivers gasoline to the cylinders at 3626 psi.
