Throttle control
Motor controller reads the Throttle position sensor. In EV it won't squirt any fuel into engine. In ICE mode it wont apply any voltage to motor. More importantly you don't have to figure out where to mount it.

AC motors like to run at a specific RPM. It may be desirable to mount this before the transmission. I would think you would need a fairly stout power inverter to generate AC, but don't know boo about them.
