How does a Toyota Prius "transmission" work?
Given that it does not shift gears (there is not even a reverse gear) and has 2 electric motors built into it, how does it work?
It is an epicyclic gear train.
This gear train has 3 gears :
1. sun gear
2. epicyclic gears
3. outer internal gear
the different gears are selectet by locking any 1 of these gears.
The was already used in Ford modal T transmission.
