I heard of another manufacture already doing this but cant remember what one.
The Honda Odessy and Chrysler 300C have a variable displacement system. I think M-B also did it on their V12 engines.
BMWs have a low power Transport Mode for shipping new cars, but I think it's n electronic limiter rather than shutting down cylinders.
