It wouldn't be able to achieve that MPGe with AWD even with Toyota's poorly executed AWD (4WD is what they call it) system that partially turns on in order to save gas.
FYI it's on their website anyways: http://www.toyota.com/rav4ev/feature...rformance/4480
The previous gen Rav4 4WD is plenty capable for the intended purpose. My mom has a V6 and it gets out of their steep, rural, ice and snow covered WV driveway just as well as my brother's OBXT... which is all it needs to do. These aren't rock crawlers.
