It will happen. Hydrogen will probably appear, as in a fuel cell. All the people who deny this technology is here to stay and take over petrol and diesel powered vehicles will be in for a rude shock. Dont forget that when talking automobiles Australia is minuscule...that's why we get the dregs now! Ever seen a 4wd that was built to take on Australian conditions straight from a showroom without a heap of mods being required. Shit...Toyota still have air-conditioning as an option...even though we put a man on the moon 50+ years ago!!!

I strongly suspect there will be an approved interim step of Hybrid petrol or diesel/electric 4WDs on the market first.

Mitsubishi have their PHEV technology in the Outlander so it would not take much to extend this over to the Pajero Sport or a Gen 5 Pajero.
Toyota are the world leaders in Hybrid technology and they sell their previous versions to many European prestige car manufacturers whilst they keep the latest versions for their cars.
They will have something in the pipeline ready to go when the demand is there.

Kia are quite new in this area but do not be surprised if they do not join the SUV hybrid market soon.

In theory a hybrid using a high efficiency hydrogen/petrol/diesel engine running a generator that is powering DC hub motors on all 4 wheels is possible. Solar panel built in to the bonnet and window glass, braking regeneration feeding into a battery, 50 litre fuel tank and 1000km range from a off road wagon with a 3000kg GVM using 5 litres per 100km.

This article is 2 years old and although the release of Hybrid 4wds has not happened it is only a matter of time. Hopefully I will still want a 4wd when they become available.

Some cars are nearing 500klms now. Within a couple of years they will be capable of 600-700klms. Besides ...why would you continually drive 5-600klms non stop without a 30 minute rest in between. This is ample time to recharge yourself and the car. Unfortunately technology is here to stay and along with profit driven corporations we will see the demise of the fossil fueled car. Its a good thing environmentally for sure...only problem is we are burning down and ripping out forests at a maniacal rate that doesnt make sense. The amount of uel burnt by aircraft and ships is both staggering and the pollution is a disgrace as well.
