I want to know about the 2019 Rav4 Hybrid AWD model, i learnt that the rear is totally disconnected from the front and gets power from the auxiliary battery located in the back. My question is that if you don't have enough charge in the battery (or after traveling off-road for a while until battery is drained), then will it become FWD ? If yes, then how this situation could be avoided ? I know if you really want to go off-road it's better to get Trail, however I have this question as i am inclined towards the hybrid model and i wanted to know if there is a time when hybrid AWD will be no more AWD ?
