I thought this was kind of a trip. Makes sense though. What would you need to complicate things for. Electric motors work 100% as well in either direction :) So reverse simply flips the direction of the electric motor. Not sure if this has ever been done in another hybrid. Id assume that ever all electric vehicle does it this way.... I just never even considered this.

Yeah all hybrids with a "E-cvt" powertrain have to do this since the only thing between the engine and planetary gear seat that sends power to the wheels is a clutch and the engine can't spin the other way. Even some non-ecvt hybrids have started doing this, removing the reverse gear from the transmission help improve shifting gears in dual clutch transmissions.

1. The hybrid system will never let the high voltage battery go completely dead (unless you leave it parked for years)
2. However, if a fault occurs and the battery fails, then operation of the car is limited
3. The gas motor is connected to the traction motors via the planetary drive gears, and one will operate as a generator while the other moves in reverse.
