Subaru is AWD all the time. The Mach E will be AWD when needed as determined by the vehicle's system. We do not know how long it will remain in AWD. The Toyota RAV4 hybrid remains in AWD for much shorter time frame than my former Escape Hybrid.Living in NC, a lighter interior is far better than a dark one. I've ordered an AWD version. I currently drive a Subaru Forester and find that AWD seems to be a bit safer during heavy and and the occasional hurricane. For me, the distance hit is worth the peace of mind.
I agree also. AWD all the time. Regenerative energy back to the battery all the time when used. You cannot separate the motors or disengage any of them. All the time every time.No, the AWD versions of the Mach-E will be AWD all the time. They're permanent magnet motors.
