    Subaru looks to be joining the hybrid fray by readying a vehicle with a new hybrid powertrain for this year's New York Auto Show.

    Kenichi Yamamoto, director of product management and coordination at Subaru of America told The Detroit Bureau that Subaru's parent company, Fuji Heavy Industries is getting a hybrid model ready. Yamamoto explained the Japanese market's interest in hybrid vehicles has been on the rise, with most coming from Toyota, Nissan, and Honda.

    Details are scarce on Subaru's hybrid model. Officials say the model could debut in the spring.

    Subaru has previewed a hybrid powertrain with the 2011 Advanced Tourer Concept, which use a turbocharged direct-injection four-cylinder boxer engine mated to an in-house hybrid drivetrain.
