In this paper, a review of the state-of-the-art of various CVT powertrain systems now used or being planned for future use in HEVs is presented. These CVT powertrain systems are classified into three main categories: mechanical CVT, electromechanical CVT (ECVT) and pure electrical CVT (EVT). The research development, system architecture, operation characteristics and the merits and drawbacks of each type are discussed.
