In my Escape, the drive motor starts the explodatron, and it's encased in the transmission. Makes switching between electric and hybrid modes really smooth to the point you don't feel it at all. Yes, my 4,000lbs behemoth can drive itself at 70mph purely on electric. Is very nice, you should get one.

Depends how it's done. Mild-hybrid's use SMG's -- Starter Motor/Generator. Which also provides a bit of boost. Some hybrids incorporate the electric motor into the transmission, so that could in theory do the same thing.

Maybe I should. But I won't. :)
Recently started doing a couple of HPDE's each year.
On that topic, I've ordered an aftermarket suspension for the car; this has new shocks, springs, and a lot of adjustability.
I don't normally do my own work, but this is going to be an exception. After I've had a chance to review the documentation, I'll be driving the >=5.5 hrs to my dad's place to use his lift, to install this thing myself and learn the adjustments.
An electromotive vehicle is certainly pawssible, it needs a hybrid
battery so it can turn off the engine when stopped and still have all
systems running, all electric accessories like a hybrid, and a beefy
That's conventional hybrid thinking. But remember, the hypothetical IGmobile is not designed to have the absolute maximum possible fuel economy at the expense of making it more complex and expensive to buy and maintain.
Again ... think train. The diesel engine on the IGmobile does not shut off.
It just sits there chugging away at its most efficient speed whenever the vehicle is in use. Demand for more speed and/or torque makes the generator work harder, just like on a train. But it never shuts off.
Just gimme a zero point energy crystal and reactionless thruster. Size of a brief case. Have it a removable format so you can just pull it out of a cage or something in the car.

Fun fact of the day:
96% of all EV's ever made are still on the road.
(the other 4% made it back home.)
Called in for a new windshield for the jeep today. I wanted to be sure it was not this week, as i wanted to swap the frame out first. "we can be there in a month"
