The Volt engine produces 53 kW which is not sufficient power for peak situations and 20 kW seems a long way from 53 kW. Does this thing control pollution and emissions?
And to the emissions question, it is easier to control emissions on an engine that runs at a constant speed.
This is a really clever idea. Think of it as a Volt where you can leave the gas engine, gas, gas tank and exhaust in the garage the 95% of the time you don’t need it. Less weight and more space for batteries or cargo.
