I don't know if there can be a meaningful answer to that question,
since the ICE is never "cranked" in any conventional sense. It is
spun up to operating speed by the Hybrid Synergy Drive, and then fuel
and spark are added so that it begins to run on its own.
Of course this does require amps, but the amps come from the HV
battery, not from the 12 V battery, so they aren't going to be
comparable to any "normal car" values.
