Is it possible to animate the vehicles in the demo version, and if so how, please.

There is only very simple animation and that is a movie effect where you set the start and end position of an vehicle or person (if you move a person it assumes it is the walk animation and just walk in that direction)

Thanks, I went through the film page / new effect/ scene effect/ move items, and moved the standing woman, then "boy African etc" they just slid along the ground, no leg action, I must be doing something wrong. Tried same with sports car, no wheel rotation, do wheels rotate in full version?

The animation of the characters in the full version is already walking. The still standing characters wont start walking. 

 

The wheels don't yet rotate in the full version.

If the wheels had no spokes or radial features there would be no way to tell if the wheels were rotating or not.

Therefore there would be no need to animate then when the vehicle is moving?

I'll discuss the whole wheel question with our content creators.

Is there any chance that cars would be ODE objects as it is already in one of Quest3D examples?

Not likely
