Mode transition control device for hybrid vehicle

A mode transition control device a hybrid vehicle has a transmission control unit that prevents a second power generation system from overheating while traveling in a series hev mode. When a battery is at a power generation request threshold value or lower, the vehicle travels in a “series hev mode,” in which the first electric motor is utilized as a drive source and receives electrical power from the second motor/generator and the battery.
