Google 'Honda IMA'.

they just sandwich the electric assist between the motor and tranny. how the motor and tranny are coupled or clutched doesn't really matter.

Series hybrid vs parallel hybrid.

While it may constrain the size of the electric motor, the packaging and cost effectiveness of a series system is hard to beat.
