Subaru XV Plug-In Hybrid sales starts
Subaru named its plug-in hybrid simply Hybrid, like the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, which means maybe they don’t want to focus on the electrification aspect of the car. Of course, this is quite a confusing name too, as the Crosstrek Hybrid has been around for a few years now, but in conventional hybrid form, not plug-in. Subaru makes use of the Toyota Hybrid System (THS) that is integrated with Subaru’s 4-cylinder direct-injection BOXER engine, Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and an all-new transmission.
There are no details at this time on battery capacity or all-electric range. The new Crosstrek Hybrid maintains all the capability of the traditional Subaru Crosstrek with increased fuel efficiency. It can be driven as a normal Hybrid, using both gas and electric power and eliminating range anxiety, or driven on pure electric drive for local commuting.
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. The 2019 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid uniquely integrates the Toyota Hybrid System (THS) with Subaru’s four-cylinder direct-injection BOXER engine, Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and an all-new transmission.
The Crosstrek Hybrid combines the wide-ranging off-road capability of the petrol-powered Crosstrek with hybrid efficiency.
