The first plug-in hybrid by Subaru is set to use technology from a partnership with Toyota.
Subarus’s first PHEV is due to be released in America in 2018, according to Elective, with the majority of technology from inside the PHEV coming from the Prius.
The model will feature a Subaru motor, rather than a Toyota motor, which would have to be horizontally installed, similarly to the engine design of the Prius.
Beyond that, Tachimori did not reveal which model the car design will be based on, the car will be produced in Japan, from where it will be exported to its destination in the USA.
Additionally, so far it will only be available in states that have taken on California’s new emissions laws.
Subaru also plans to stop selling diesel motors as of 2020, instead focusing on the sale of electric motors reportedly.
