sounds like it - standard ICE, electric and on board generator? Or am I misunderstanding something.

Awesome info btw.

I think it's just a parallel hybrid system, similar to Toyota's.

Is the 2.0L iVTEC engine a modified K20, R20, or something else?

I'm answering my own question. It's probably an R20 since K20s will be gone soon enough.

The direct drive system is very different though, for highway driving it should mean very low parasitic transmission losses - basically bypassing the cvt transmission with a single fixed gear ratio from the gas engine I would assume.
