Split Configuration

In a hybrid with a split configuration, the electric motor and gasoline engine are totally segregated by axel; the electric motor powers one axel, while the gasoline engine powers the other. That requires two seperate drive trains to bring the rotation of each power source to the wheels. At the time of this writing there are no true split configuration hybrid vehicles in mass production.
