How do you believe the direct-drive works?

  1. Planetary Gearset

  2. CVT

  3. Other (explain in comment)

  4. Monkey on Treadmill (AKA I have no clue and want to know too!)

    It was brought up on another thread that there is a lot of conflicting info when it comes to how the gas engine directly drives the wheels (when it's not just driving a generator.) Does anyone have any official Honda literature explaining this? I've heard CVT, I've heard planetary gearset (with a fixed gear-ratio), I've heard a direct clutch, heck it might even be through a monkey on a treadmill...

    I'm hoping we can get an 'official' answer from Honda on this one.

    Edit: Added a poll for the fun of it to see where that leads us as well...

    I believe some of the confusion is that people are not noticing that the Honda material I saw says trany is CVTe not CVT. I think this means that some are correct in saying it’s a planetary gear and not the CVT that’s found in other Hondas. Somebody with more info please chime in.
