    The "switchable reduction" means its a cvt or e-cvt as toyota calls it. You missed the word switchable.

    Switchable as in FWD or AWD, note the "rear" transmission.

    "The brand new GKN Multi-Mode eTransmission makes its debut on the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV – the world’s first Twin
    Motor 4WD Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle with ability to charge on-the-go - being showcased at the Frankfurt Motor show this week.

    Mitsubishi Motors’ new Twin Motor 4WD Plug-in Hybrid Electric crossover is powered by two 60kW electric motors, one in the front and the other one in the rear. They are fed by a large capacity lithium-ion battery. A petrol engine and a generator are also fitted.

    The GKN Multi-Mode eTransmission used as front transaxle offers optimum performance in three different driving modes with two different power sources:


    Pure EV mode, with the vehicle’s front axle and rear axle driven only by the electric motors, the front motor being attached to the GKN Multi-Mode eTransmission. Energy is sourced from the battery.
    Series Hybrid mode, with the combustion engine driving a generator to charge the traction battery on-the-go whilst the car is still only driven by its front and rear electric motors;
    Parallel Hybrid mode, with the combustion engine’s torque feeding through to the GKN Multi-Mode eTransmission to the front wheels via a hydraulic clutch which remains disengaged in both other modes. Front and rear motors then supplement the petrol engine. Battery charging still occurs too.
