The Rorschach test of engines

What do you see?

A mushroom?

A Sailboat?

These are RPM / Speed correlation charts of different transmissions.
The first one is an e-CVT from an Auris Hybrid, while the second is a traditional one from a Renault Megane.
The e-CVT can attain every speed with several different RPM from the engine, while a traditional transmission has to choose between a discrete and limited set.
