That's the future. When batteries are gone at least.
IIRC, all of the ERS systems Ford/gm/Toyota looked into, would cost as much as the diesel upgrade and weigh as much.
We'll see it in cars first. Rear wheel drive. No xfer case, no front drive shaft. Just a front diff and a front electric motor. AWD through electricity.
Toyotas race car for example. I think it's rwd, with a front electric motor for awd. I believe the rear has a transmission, and rear electric motor.
Batteries are what's killing the innovation.
The AWD Prius already has that.
