MG1 is definitely NOT directly connected to the combustion engine. The internal combustion engine can spin-up the MG1 motor via the planetary gear set (or power split device) but its definitely NOT a direct connection. If a force is placed on MG1 to 'hold' itself, the combustion engine can spin freely.

I believe there will be a supercharged CT200h at the NY Autoshow. It is possible.........but difficult. I would also be curious to know the increased in-efficiency of the boost level due to the atkinson cycle of the 2ZR-FXE engine.
