Is a Subaru Plug-in Hybrid On the Way This Year?

Since the Crosstrek XV Hybrid was discontinued a couple model years ago, drivers have been wondering if a Subaru plug-in hybrid would return at any point, and if the recent reports are true, Subaru plans to unveil an all-wheel drive plug-in hybrid in the coming months. The Subaru PHEV (plug-in hybrid electric vehicle) is rumored to to be a conversion of a current model, but it hasn't been released which model it will be yet, although experts are suggesting either the Crosstrek (again) or the Forester as candidates.

It's speculated that the Subaru PHEV could see shared components with the Prius Prime, which is equipped with an 8.8-kWh lithium-ion battery that offers fast charging and wonderful fuel economy both in the city and on the highway. The PHEV is a commitment that Subaru made to reduce emissions throughout its fleet, with a hope to develop a full EV model by 2021.

While the speculated upcoming Subaru PHEV model is not yet available, if you want to familiarize yourself with what you can find and enjoy in current Subaru models, we welcome you to join us here today and get to know the new Subaru Forester and new Subaru Crosstrek as well as all our new Subaru models in person!
