they also will add a CVT trans to go with it.

Sounds good, but I think it would be pricey for any repair to the system.

FINALLY, something other than gas/electric. I just don't see how full electric can work. Gas/electric sort of work, but i just don't think it's practical for all applications. This however, may work pretty well, guess we'll have to wait and see.

i think the idea of ford's eco-boost engine is going to be more popular than this. plus with this(as said above) repairs will be more costly.

Interesting concept. I don't think I've seen anything like this but it does make sense.
