English term or phrase: shift-on-the-fly
Definition from autoevolution:
Most part-time four-wheel drive systems in the past required their drivers to stop the vehicle and manually lock the front hubs in order to engage the all-wheel drive mode. Modern systems now have automatic front hubs locking, which translates into the ability to "shift-on-the-fly" from two-wheel drive to four-wheel drive mode.

Example sentence(s):
  • Technical specifications include a supercharged 1.6L, inline-four engine (160 hp and 155 lb-ft of torque) and a four-speed automatic transmission coupled with a shift-on-the-fly transfer case with full-time four-wheel drive and low-range modes. 4Wheel & off-road
  • To the left of the pod are three switches, one for electronic control of the four wheel drive shift on the fly system, the other two are for cruise control and the fogs. The Auto Channel
  • Of course, the key feature for the Suzuki XL-7 4WD beast is its shift-on-the-fly four-wheel drive which will power you through just about anything you throw at it. new-cars.com

kytkettävä neliveto


Definition from www.totuusnelivedosta.com:
Ajoneuvo on lähtökohtaisesti takavetoinen, neliveto otetaan käyttöön tarvittaessa. Se kytketään auton ulkopuolelta (käsikäyttöiset napalukot) tai ohjaamosta elektronisesti ohjatun mekaniikan avulla (automaattiset napalukot).

Example sentence(s):
  • Alkeellisin nelivetototeutus on kytkettävä neliveto. Nämä autot on tarkoitettu ajettavaksi maantiellä takavetoisena. Tiukan paikan tullen kytketään neliveto käyttöön. Pitävällä pinnalla nelivetoa ei saa käyttää. - www.ajovalo.net  
  • avallisessa ajossa Kia Sorento tuntuu mukavalta henkilöautolta, mutta kun siirryt maastoon, se paljastaa todellisen luonteensa. Luja erillisrunko, kytkettävä hidas tai nopea neliveto ja reilu maavara varmistavat, että voit ajaa tyylikkäästi sinne, minne tavallisilla autoilla ei ole asiaa. - kia  

Explanation:
Kyseessä on järjestelmä, jossa neliveto voidaan kytkeä ajon aikana ohjaamosta päälle manuaalisesti; "on the fly" viittaa ajon aikana tapahtuvaan kytkentään erotukseksi järjestelmistä, joissa nelivedon kytkeminen edellyttää ajoneuvon pysäyttämistä.
