Toyota did a fantastic job engineering the hybrid drivetrain of the Prius, and that should scale to other automotive segments.
Actually it was scaled to other brands:
Ford, Mazda, Nissan - all of them used Toyota's hybrids (at some point of time).

Actually, Toyota's hybrid is an Aisin drivetrain, VAG uses Aisin automated transmissions on their cars. I'm wondering why VAG don't use their hybrids?
