2020 Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 Will Have An Electric Supercharger

Spy photos of the all-new 2020 Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 are available now. As rumored, it will be equipped with an electric supercharger to easily develop 400 hp.

The car has a really aggressive look with its larger intakes and wheels, 4 big exhaust pipe tips, a diffuser, a lower suspension and Panamera-styled grille. The trunk lid was reshaped for better downforce.

A 48-volt battery powers an engine which feeds more cold air to the 2.0-liter motor to compensate for turbo lag and to deliver from 200 hp per litre of displacement.

The powertrain also includes an electric engine and a 7-speed transmission – the same as on the CLS 53 model. Mercedes promises more than 400 hp of output for the CLA 45.
