AWD - All Wheel Drive

Term Definition

AWD stands for all-wheel-drive, which sends power to both the front and rear pairs of wheels. All-wheel-drive cars typically use their systems to maximise road-holding and traction by allowing each wheel to spin at a different speed. This is in contrast to four-wheel-drive vehicles that are geared for off-road ability. ICEV cars typically used a central differential to distribute torque between the front and rear axles. Conversely, modern EVs more commonly use a dual-motor set-up to drive the front and rear axles. Examples, Tesla Model S Performance, Jaguar I-Pace, Audi e-Tron
