Nope doesn't make sense without downsizing the engine, and all its related sub systems.

With all the extra weight, both the ev system and the ice system function less efficient. The only way to have a successful hybrid vehicle running at optimum efficiency is to go back to the drawing board, redesign the entire setup with an optimized size engine, Gearbox, Motor, Power electronics, energy source for both, and so on..

This is just my opinion over my calculations, trials, failures, etc. But I may be wrong too.

Have a lovely day cheif

Amazing work Hemank and this is the future. But converting existing cars to EVs will be vehemently opposed by Oil companies and also Auto Manufacturers, but this is in the common man's interest so hopefully gain momentum!
All the best to you and your team - will keep following you closely.

EVs have been a personal passion of mine and I am currently working on a 3 wheel electric vehicle (early design stage). Would love to meet up with you sometime if you come to Delhi or if I come to Pune!
