How significant? Didn't see that mentioned. And did I understand correctly that the second electric motor drives the rear wheels, replacing mechanical AWD? That's the current advantage the Rav4 AWD system has over the CR-V. Would also love to know how much weight the hybrid system adds.Looks like a significant loss of usable cabin space in the back. .
In normal driving, the powertrain will automatically transition between Hybrid Drive and EV Drive. At moderate speeds, the CR-V Hybrid will typically run in EV Drive for more than half of the time, but at faster speeds, the SUV will be in EV Drive for approximately one third of the time.
