I don't have an EE, but that sounds WAY more complicated than necessary. The engineering is in getting the ICE part into good shape and you just let the front wheels and the electrics manage the "getting going" part. (Hell, the Koenigsegg Regera doesn't even bother with the multi-speed transmission part, just a clutch. Electric get the car moving until the ICE-driven parts won't lag, then the dinoburner takes over. It makes an... odd launch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qtXDesz3Z0M )I wonder how the power from the motor on the front axle is managed. I'm assuming the electric motor on the front axle has a fixed gear ratio while the ICE powers the rear axle through a multiple speed transmission. So in order to keep in balance it seems to me the inverter driving the front wheels would have to be controlled via a complex algorithm based on accelerator position, ICE torque output and transmission gear ratio.
