Audi recently released a prototype which uses an electric-driven compressor, but it has a housing similar to the one of a regular turbo.

I think I heard of that one , If I remember correctly it makes 250hp
unlike this one that barely (if) keeps up with the inlet air speed.


2lbs of boost is good for nothing

I have a Boost gauge on my Beetle so I know how weak 2psi is , its totally unnoticeable when driven.

I realise this has been debunk many times, but:

Car manufacturers have taken all sorts of loads off the engine and replaced them with electrical loads, power steering, A/C compressors, electric water pumps etc.

An electric supercharger that delivered sufficient CFM and only worked to boost acceleration (rather than all the time like a traditional supercharger) could give a downsized engine power when needed without the need for a complex turbo retro fit or the MPG hit of a constantly spinning supercharger.
