For more power?ChrisMiller wrote: ↑Tue Oct 13, 2020 1:21 amDirect mechanical drive is likely to be more efficient than an indirect electrical one, which involves extra stages with inevitable losses occurring at each. Anyway, if it wasn't more efficient, why would the Mitsubishi engineers have included it? It must surely carry some weight penalty.
How do you suppose that you can get more power out of the engine when it is linked to the road wheel speed in Parallel mode than when it is free to rev higher in Series mode? As with pretty much every engine ever built, (generally) more revs = more power
