1. A driving force control system for a front-and-rear wheel drive vehicle that drives one pair of respective pairs of front drive wheels and rear drive wheels by an engine, and another pair of the respective pairs by an electric motor, the driving force control system comprising:

  • vehicle speed-detecting means for detecting a vehicle speed of the vehicle;

    driving force demand degree-detecting means for detecting a degree of demand for a driving force for driving the vehicle;

    target driving force-calculating means for calculating a target driving force for driving the vehicle, based on at least the vehicle speed and the degree of demand for the driving force;

    traveling condition-determining means for determining a present traveling condition of the vehicle; and

    driving force control means for controlling a driving force of the engine and a driving force of the motor based on the calculated target driving force, in dependence on the traveling condition of the vehicle determined by said traveling condition-determining means.
