    Rumorpile: Subaru Plans An All-Electric Crossover For 2021


    • There's talk about an electric Subaru coming in 2021

    Subaru's green credentials aren't the best as it only sells one hybrid in the U.S. (XV Crosstrek Hybrid) and one in Japan (Impreza Sport Hybrid). But that could be changing in 2021.

     

    Japanese newspaper Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun reports that Subaru plans on launching an electric crossover in the U.S. by 2021. This crossover is expected to use Subaru's new modular platform that was revealed earlier this year. The report doesn't say anything about power or possible range, nor does it say how it got this information.

     

    When asked by Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun, Fuji Heavy spokesman Masato Saito said the company hasn't made any decision on introducing an electric vehicle. Saito went on to say that if Subaru did go forward with an EV, it would likely target the North American marketplace.

    They don't sound too enthused about the prospect.  I'm sure the Crosstrek Hybrid is a poor seller too.  This makes me like Subaru more, and their sales keep going up and up... clearly they don't need any ridic ninnie cars to succeed.

    Crosstrek Hybrid sells very well with a low average on lot date last time I checked it. Many coworkers who are subaru fans have them here in Washington.

    Since they are targeting the NA market, I have to assume they will follow the Bolt with a CUV EV. But it would make sense to cover both fields with a Tesla 3 competitor and a Bolt competitor.

    I'd definitely take one over their volume naturally aspirated boxer 4 banger w/CVT...

    No kidding...the Crosstek is slower than a seven year itch, and about as pleasant.

    Could not agree with you more.
