2014 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV: LA Auto Show Preview

I just found the definition of a "Through the Road" hybrid, and yes, it sounds like that too. Here is the Definition: http://silverthorninst.org/Automotive%20and%20transport/AutoTrends2.htm "Another cost-efficient hybrid configuration has been termed a "through the road" configuration. It starts with a conventional two-wheel drive train, and adds electric drive on the other two wheels. The separate systems pull together, when extra power or extra road traction are needed. When power demand is low—at low speeds or low accelerator settings—the electric drive operates alone. The drive from the IC engine is disengaged, through an automatic clutch or automatic shift to neutral, and the IC engine is stopped. "
