36mpg/36mpg/3500lb towing capacity. That thing is badass.

I've heard them called ECVT as well. No bands or clutches at all. I think they may be the most reliable transmission ever even compared to a manual which will need a clutch or 2 over it's life. They use them in the newer Toyota hybrids and the newer Ford hybrids and the Pacifica hybrid.

Everything old is new again (includes regenerative braking).


I wonder about what that is strapped to the steering column. Electric power steering?

Maybe that explains this clip from 1923?
