An automotive multi-wheel drive, also known as an all-wheel drive or (AWD), is a type of automobile in which all the wheels receive equal torque from the engine. It includes vehicles that have four or more than four wheels such as SUVs, trucks, commercial lorries and luxury cars. Generally, in vehicles with two-wheel drive, the engine can supply power to either the front wheels or the rear wheels at a single point of time. Whereas, in all-wheel or multi-wheel drives, all the wheels of a vehicle operate simultaneously in order to provide better traction and handling during adverse weather conditions. They are also considered ideal for rough terrains like snow, ice, mud, off-road and sand, as these drives prevent slipping and help propelling the vehicle forward. Moreover, multi-wheel drives also enable the engines to distribute the weight in a more efficient manner.
Increasing awareness among consumers regarding their safety while driving has catalyzed the demand for various advanced in-built safety features such as multi-wheel drive. In addition, to improve the traction and control over the vehicle, most luxury and sports cars are installed with multi-wheel drive systems. A shift in consumer preferences towards comfort and luxury driving with enhanced driving dynamics is further expected to augment the overall demand for luxury cars, SUVs and other sports vehicles across Europe and Asia.
