A lighter torsion damper and new engine clutch which features fewer clutch discs reduce drag and contribute to a more efficient transfer and use of power.
There are other modifications, like the addition of a new case and torsion damper, but fundamentally, the architecture of the system is such that off-the-shelf transmissions developed for traditional internal combustion engines can be deployed for future hybrid systems without having to incur major engineering costs.
