Hybrid Car without First and Second Gears

I have an idea for a new kind of hybrid car that uses the same parts but eliminates low gears (first and second shifts) in any transmissions found in today's hybrid cars. I noticed that hybrid cars still use first and second gears, something which no longer makes any sense to me because there is already an electric motor/generator commonly found in hybrid cars today. In the video, I explain how my changes to the hybrid car's transmission would work and how this would impact the environment. Sign language is featured by the narrator in this video with subtitles throughout.
