Hyundai patents engine with differing cylinder displacements

Hyundai has made a filing with the European Patent Office for engines featuring cylinders with differing displacements. AutoGuide recently discovered a patent filing from the Korean car maker for a "system and method for motor-assisted non-uniform displacement engine control". In a nutshell, the hypothetical engine would have two types of cylinders, each with a different displacement. For example, a four-cylinder would have two 500cc cylinders, and two 450cc cylinders.
