Yanmar SD20 Hybrid Saildrive

A few weeks ago I went to the Genoa boat show and saw a very neat hybrid saildrive system from Yanmar.
It is a drop-in replacement for a traditional yanmar SD and it seems to be the best of both worlds - electric and thermal.

Has anyone installed it and can give me an opinion on real-life use ?

That Yanmar hybrid system has been out for a few years now.
Never see anyone talk about it.
