Introducing the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid

Subaru says the Crosstrek Hybrid will retain the capabilities offered by the all-wheel-drive systems integral to the brand's identity while raising fuel efficiency with bursts of electric power.

The prospect of electrified Subaru models arriving in Australia is more a matter of when and not if, according to the Japanese carmaker's local arm, and the company has its arm firmly in the air for its first hybrid offerings. The new drivetrain will be accommodated by Subaru's future-proofing Global Platform, which is shared with the base Crosstrek, but designed with hybrid or all-electric power in mind. There are still very few details surrounding the Crosstrek Hybrid, but we do know that Subaru and Toyota will team up again, as the hybrid drive unit will come from the latter.

The Subaru announcement also detailed that the vehicle will use a version of the Toyota hybrid system from the Prius Prime.

The post Subaru will launch its first plug-in hybrid with a little help from Toyota appeared first on Digital Trends.

California is one of the biggest auto markets in the country, and the state requires the automakers who sell more than 20,000 vehicles there to produce a certain number of plug-in cars. Unlike the previous version, the 2019 Crosstrek Hybrid will be a plug-in hybrid with a pure electric mode.

Its conventional 2014 Crosstrek Hybrid didn't provide much of a boost in fuel economy and didn't find many buyers.

On sale near the end of this year, the PHEV will also feature unique styling. No MSRP was given as part of Subaru's announcement, but it is expected to be higher than the 2018 Crosstrek's entry price of $21,795.
