Electrically-driven supercharger said to be ready for production
A electric blower could also be used to take advantage of the extra electric power available from a brake energy regeneration system such as that used by BMW, even without a full hybrid system. CPT also claims that the electric blower can reduce the particulate emissions of a diesel engine, because it responds better at low engine speeds. Because of the low investment required to implement the electric supercharger, CPT is hoping for some niche manufacturers to take up the device.
