When running my PHEV2 on fully electric and starting from stationary it feels as if it is changing through the gears. It's hardly noticeable, but there seems to be a slight hesitation as if it's going up through the auto gear box?

Can anyone tell me if the elect motor actually drives through the gearbox or is it a direct drive?

Ta for that info. I thought it must be like that.

It probably explains how the motor can drive the vehicle right through the speed range too. I was told that it's one of the only hybrids that does that and the others switch to the ICE when the speed is above a certain value.
