Now, is that because people WANT a hybrid, or is it because the only way to get a new 4WD RAV4 is to buy a Hybrid version?

Because it's the only viable Rav available. I would be interested to know if 4.4 sales have dropped ? But then All diesel cars have lost a lot of sales and a lot of money due to scaremongering..

You can still have a petrol - 2.0 Valvematic AWD CVT - but I think that people do want the performance, economy and green credentials associated with a hybrid.

That said, it amuses me how hard the manufacturers are working with the complicated hybrid technology to effectively replicate the performance characteristics of a decent diesel ...

Had mine for four months now, can honestly say that out of the four Ravs I've had, this Hybrid is
definitely the best. But it's marmite isn't it............. ;)

I hear nothing but good things about the hybrid not least from the guys at DNA who reckon they are ace cars.. But there would be no real gain for me by changing my current 4.4 for one. For a start I'm in the same position as many who find themselves with a late car worth bugger all cos the scare story's condemning all diesels have blighted anything diesel.plus I don't understand hybrids and I believe they are in infancy for a while at least.

Frankly how a 2 WD drive Rav can be called a RAV4 baffles me.... After all it's all in the name :s_thumbsup
