Subaru America cues up Crosstrek PHEV

Another contender to commence the Australian Subaru hybrid foray here will be an electrified version of the all-new Forester due later this year, but this too will find its way to other countries long before our market.

The 2019 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid will operate on pure electric power for local commuting (exact EV range has yet to be announced, but we assume it will be under 50 kilometres) before switching to regular hybrid mode, using both gasoline and electricity.

The Crosstrek Hybrid is an advanced, eco-friendly version of the versatile compact SUV that has become the brand's third best-selling model in America.

Even if Subaru borrowed the Prime's 8.8-kWh battery and electric motors, the Crosstrek Hybrid's boxer engine, all-wheel-drive system, and higher ride height will make it hard to match the Toyota's 25-mile EV range or its 54 mpg combined rating.

Imagine all the fun-to-drive dynamics and AWD capabilities of the Subaru Crosstrek with plug-in hybrid technology.

On sale near the end of this year, the PHEV will also feature unique styling. Subaru has partnered with Toyota on the development of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles.

The Crosstrek Hybrid however, will retain Subaru's signature flat-4 engine. All Subaru products are manufactured in zero-landfill production plants and Subaru of Indiana Automotive, Inc. is the only USA automobile production plant to be designated a backyard wildlife habitat by the National Wildlife Federation. Over the past 20 years, SOA has donated more than $120 million to causes the Subaru family cares about, and its employees have logged more than 40,000 volunteer hours.

Subaru Australia spokesman David Rowley said the company is keen to bring hybrid models Down Under, however there are no models earmarked to arrive in the foreseeable future.
