Turbocharging and supercharging

Special report: Turbocharging and supercharging

Due to increasingly stringent emissions and fuel economy regulations, it is widely agreed that the days are numbered for naturally aspirated engines.

Where once it was used purely for added power, the turbocharger is set to be an integral part of the engine of the future. And the supercharger is enjoying a resurgence, making it another option for mainstream vehicle manufacturers. Each is application-specific; what is certain, however, is that from electrically-assisted internal combustion engines through to fuel cell vehicles, and from light vehicles to heavy trucks, forced induction is here to stay.
