Thanks for sharing the article, but it annoys me at how little information it contained. All of that talking and no mention of how many HP the motors add.

Also, there is zero percent chance that the system can double the mpg of city driving. I actually get slightly better mpg in stop and go gridlocked traffic than steady 70mph freeway travel in my car (which says something about how the horrid gearing).
