BemRw8VCAAAGK3wToday Mercedes revealed their 2014 F1 V6 engine unit’s animation footage, also they states, no longer calling it an “engine” — it is now a “power unit” since it’s a hybrid engine.

The Mercedes AMG explained about the name of new Engine unit.

“PU106A Hybrid?” we hear you say… “But what does it mean?” Well, we’re glad you asked. The Brackley based squad explained.

‘PU’ – The Power Unit; far more than simply an Internal Combustion Engine.
