  Electric BMW 7 Series due in 2022 Like the next Jaguar XJ, the BMW 7 Series will be available as an EVPerformance and battery details have yet to be released but it’s likely that the 7 Series EV will use a similar powertrain to the BMW iX3. The iX3 has two electric motors that provide all-wheel drive and are linked to a 70kWh battery pack for an output of 532bhp. Given that all the power in electric cars is available instantly, we expect the iX3 and the 7 Series to be blisteringly fast in a straight line.

The future of Mercedes - AMG is turning electric.

What Mercedes in Formula 1 became the industry leader will soon be used in everyday life, at least in part: the new electric exhaust gas turbocharger from Mercedes-AMG for series production has its roots in motorsport. The motor-generator unit for converting heat into energy, MGU-H for short, from the Formula 1 silver arrows serves as a model.

Together with its technical partner Garrett Motion, Mercedes-AMG has taken up and adapted this approach for the street car division. The result was an exhaust gas turbocharger with an integrated electric motor.

The new Mercedes - AMG Project ONE is the most ambitious project the performance and sports car brand has ever planned. The show car combines outstanding race track performance and day-to-day suitable Formula 1 hybrid technology with exemplary efficiency.

describes the advantages of this design as follows: "The electrification of the turbocharger significantly improves the response behavior directly from idle speed and over the entire speed range. The so-called turbo lag - the delayed response of a conventional charger - is eliminated by the electric motor."

Further advantages of the new turbo technology

This leads to a "significantly more dynamic and agile driving behavior", the engine responds more spontaneously to pedal commands and ensures a "continuously direct response" at speeds of up to 170,000 revolutions per minute.

Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG, describes this as an "example of the transfer of Formula 1 technology to the road" and hopes to be able to raise supercharged internal combustion engines "to an unprecedented level of agility".

criticism of Formula 1 drives

MGU-H technology has been used in Formula 1 since 2014. Since then, Mercedes has dominated the racing series, achieved the majority of victories and won all world titles.

The complex technology of the turbo hybrid drives but has repeatedly been criticized as "too complicated" because it could deter potential newcomers. Finally, the former BAR team boss David Richards expressed his doubts that Formula 1 will continue to maintain MGU-H and Co. in the new regulations beyond 2022.

The outgoing Mercedes drive chief Andy Cowell, however, already said in 2019: Abolishing the MGU-H component would technically be "a step backwards". Justification: "In order to make up for the resulting performance deficit, we would have to increase the gas flow rate. And that would not be progress, especially since the entire development has already been completed."
