Gear-based Continuously Engaged Variable Transmission allowing continuous transfer of power through gears, even during gear-ratio change. It could greatly increase the range (autonomy) of electric vehicles and improve their efficiency by minimizing inrush current at every start and maximizing power storage whenever the vehicle brakes or travels downhill. In motor vehicles it could increase fuel economy, lower CO2 emissions and increase performance. It could improve road safety for all vehicles by keeping the wheels continuously engaged to the engine.
