How do it know?!
It sounds nice, i think im sold
The mockup shows a mechanical drive transfer, is that accurate? I am under the impression that the 2014 MDX is using hybrid electric motors powered by a lithium ion battery powered directly from the transmission and there is NO mechanical connection to the rear. If you were using electric motors in the rear wheels, I would think that powering the generator in the rear would be inefficient as the long shaft would just be bonus rotational weight making the engine have to work harder to power it. Would appreciate anyone's comments/feedback.
Blame the electronics for that. AWD could be 50-50 in idle conditions. But even Audi has gone away from that to 60-40 distribution rear-front. It's more forgiving for drivers who tend to be too throttle glad in the bends. You know those wanting to waste time and rubber, rather than go really speedy.
Seems mostly electric though. Which is sad. The Audi Quattro did this between front and rear all mechanically. There was also a premium ver of the Audi V8 that mechanically handled the rear wheels. Mechanical is superior to electronic, as it is immediate, no delays. Audi has actually the torque vectoring added to it's Quattro line. Unfortunately it's a hybrid and not pure mechanical. I assume that is due to ESP, as ESP is counterproductive in such systems, and makes completely mechanical impossible.
Do you happen to know the torque distribution of the system?
Oh nice, other understeer-glad, front-biased AWD system. Maybe this video is impressive to know-nothing soccer moms, but you aren't fooling anyone with a functioning brain, Acura.
