Source?

The belt starter generator can, under certain circumstances, add up to 6kW of output/60Nm of torque for up to a max of 5 seconds. That said, I see no reference of what you are referencing on the EA839 engine. Can you please share further details in an official source?

From official documentation (SSP 664), it's actually up to 14kW at 51.5 volts for a max of 5 seconds or sustained 5kW output in generator mode.
