Crazy, huh?
Cool, but not crazy. It'll be interesting to see what the power loss is from that. I expect it to be quite a bit more than a regular tranny given that you have to continually use power to keep the desired gear ratio. Two motors fighting each other doesn't sound like a hot idea.

Aside from that, the biggest problem with CVTs isn't the lack of power they can handle, but rather that it is so different from a driver perspective. CVTs tend to feel weird to drivers, and that has been the biggest roadblock to their adoption.

I prefer my DSG Smile
I'll keep my manual transmission, thank you Smile

Interesting concept (definitely not 'crazy', as kllrnohj mentioned). I'd really be interested in seeing how this would be implemented Smile
