Interesting article on the m139

Note that the electric turbo only applies to the new hybrid AMG 63 versions of the M139 engine. It almost certainly won't be in the Emira version of the engine, unless they make it hybrid power in the future.

Correct, the hybrid M139 is called the M139L — and idk where you’d place a substantial battery in the Emira since it needs a 400v architecture to operate.

Agreed. Normally I wouldn't expect a battery in the Emira. But the investor presentation said Lotus is aiming for an EV Emira, so maybe a battery hybrid Emira is more possibly in the cards.
