that was one thing that brought the Impreza to mind..it is considered the most fuel-efficient of the 4wd vehicles. Still, if you can swap into something lighter, that would be the way to go.

How critical is reducing the unsprung weight for a non-performance vehicle? Other than exposing the electric motors to additional vibration and road shock, is there any real problem with eliminating the half-shafts altogether and mounting the motors directly to the wheels?
