Such as Park/eDrive/Reverse
Seems you don't understand a CVT. The CVT is infinity variable within the min/max of the pulley setup - the number of motor revs varies per wheel revolution depending on where the pulleys are set. The electric motor in this thing is always the same ratio of motor revs per wheel revs - i.e., a single speed transmission - it is functionally directly connected to the wheels with no variable gear multiplication.
