AutoBlog: Subaru releases more pics of Hybrid Tourer Concept

Subaru Hybrid Tourer Concept - click above for high-res image gallery

Subaru has just released a bunch of new images of its Hybrid Tourer concept that is slated to debut next week at the Tokyo Motor Show. The gullwing wagon/hatch/thingy is Subaru's first major cut at a hybrid and the first from anyone using a boxer four-cylinder engine. A pair of electric motors provide regenerative braking, pure electric drive and blended electric boost, with a lithium ion battery pack as the energy storage medium.

Subaru has been working with their partners at Toyota to produce this new hybrid architecture, and it will likely appear in production vehicles in the next few years. Besides the hybrid system, the concept also includes a new direct injected version of its 2.0-liter turbo boxer engine that will also probably appear in production vehicles before long.

I'm liking their styling direction... much better than the stuff coming out of Subaru three years ago.

From the neck down, this thing just falls apart into a big bowl of flab. Good looking face, ugly body loaded with cellulite.

It's not ugly enough to be a Subaru. I like the grille, though.
