I understand there are plenty of tinkerers in their garages doing systems. I am not talking about them.

Those guys could not do small batch systems for particular models at a reasonable cost.

I am talking about larger scale systems done, probably by the manufacturers themselves as they would have to deal with all sorts of extra paperwork and legal nightmares.

As for it being economically justified simply by fuel savings, you are right. It wouldn't. I think the primary benefit would be to those that love manual transmissions....until they have to make the 3 mph slog into the office 5 days a week.

How many are driving autos because of this?

Wouldn't it be nice to just pop it into neutral and inch along via a low power electric motor to the rear wheels.
