The ICE turns one of the electric motors to generate electricity, The other electric motor works with or independent of the ICE to power the wheels, or the ICE can work alone to power the wheels. The computer controls them all.
SAY WHAT??? I was told that there was only ONE electric motor and that it could help power the car or be used for regenerative braking (as a generator) or to charge the battery while the ICE was powering the car.

So guys, how many DC motors and generators are there?
