There are a number of options, but I had to reject most of them. The GS450h motors run at 650V, which is provided by a 30kW buck-boost converter which lives in the inverter casing. That's why the GS450h, with it's 300hp V6 engine and 320ish-hp electric motors can only achieve a total 340ish-hp rating. The only way to get full power from the motors is to use one as a generator, and use that electricity immediately to drive the other motor. The battery in the GS450h cannot supply more than 30kW (about 40hp), it's limited by the converter.

Goddamn this rules. Interesting how Toyota kinda ran things a little backwards instead of just using more cells.

Also you are way smarter than I am.

If you weren't removing the entire fuel system it might be neat to make an inline 3 into a range extender.
