We won't have long to wait as the Subaru XV and Forester will be available as e-BOXER self-charging hybrid vehicles later this year.
You can expect the same permanent Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive go-anywhere capability. As expected great handling. With out exception the ever dependable rugged reliability. And the very latest advanced driver assistance systems and passenger safety technologies, including EyeSight.
Everything the same? So what's the difference?
Now Subaru’s e-BOXER self-charging hybrids add electric motor assistance: additional battery-based power that reduces harmful greenhouse gas emissions and fuel consumption without the need to plug in to recharge.
Welcome to Subaru’s first e-BOXER mild-hybrid, self-charging SUVs.
Cleaner and more fuel-efficient than conventional petrol or diesel power, our e-BOXER vehicles offer more responsive, instantaneous acceleration and terrain-gripping torque. Exceptionally smooth and refined, reduced vehicle noise and vibration mean Subaru’s ride quality is now better than ever.
Thanks to a battery-powered electric motor assisting a new efficient e-BOXER petrol engine, Subaru’s mild-hybrids make every bit of energy count.
When pulling away, or in slow traffic, the electric motor alone does all the heavy lifting. When cruising, the e-BOXER petrol engine drives the car – but also recharges the battery. When accelerating or under load, both the engine and the motor provide power together. The electric motor power assistance – Motor Assist – is completely automatic. It works seamlessly with the e-BOXER engine to give you a cleaner, efficient, and rewarding drive.
Even when decelerating or braking, energy that would normally be lost when slowing down is recovered – and again is used for top-up charging.
Whilst the XV e-BOXER joins the current XV model range, the Forester e-BOXER is an all-new model. Now built on the new Subaru Global Platform just like the XV, the all-new Forester enjoys the very latest advances and technologies from Subaru.
