Volvo PowerPulse

The technology has been named PowerPulse and it can be found on the D5 2 liter turbo diesel engine of the company, that produces 235 hp with 480 Nm of torque. Its function is to pump air from the air filter to cover the turbo lag of the diesel engine, at low speeds.

The system uses a small supercharger who undertakes the compression of air in a tank that has a capacity of only 2 liters and it sends the compressed air at the car’s intake, when needed.
