Volvo Cars’ New Drive-E Powertrains – Most Powerful Petrol Version with Dual Charging

The first three engines from the two-litre, four-cylinder Drive-E powertrain family will be launched in autumn 2013. The most powerful petrol version comes with a class-leading combination of a compressor and a turbocharger. 
Using the supercharger to fill in the bottom end torque gives the petrol engine a big, naturally aspirated feel. The mechanically linked compressor starts to function immediately at low revs, while the turbocharger kicks in when the airflow builds up.
