Toggle %s Subaru plans to sell only electric cars by the middle of the 2030s

Posted By:  aekOne @ 21 January 2020 - 11:48 AM

Hybrids and EVs will represent 40% of its output by 2030

In a surprise announcement, Subaru says they will have an all-EV lineup by the mid-2030s. Are you ready for all-electric Forester, Outback and Ascent models?


Subaru Corporation needs to keep up with the global EV revolution and they have just announced a plan to do it. Subaru Corporation held a press briefing today spelling out their electrification plans and there are many changes coming for the Japanese automaker. President Tomomi Nakamura says Subaru will move quickly toward its long-term goal of a carbon-free society, setting a target to sell only electric vehicles worldwide by the first half of the 2030s.


Some things won’t be changing. Nakamura says in the midst of a once-in-a-century period of “profound transformation”, Subaru will stay true to its core values of using horizontally-opposed “Boxer” engines, all-wheel-drive (AWD) technologies, superior driving performance, and safety (EyeSight driver assist).


He went on to say, in this new era of mobility, the Subaru brand will strive to remain “different from other brands”, and will further hone the distinctive qualities that make a Subaru a Subaru, and will “maintain the unique attributes our customers have come to expect.”


With Toyota increasing its stake in Subaru to 20 percent, customers can look for Subaru to develop a new hybrid vehicle using Toyota technology that will debut later in the decade. Subaru did not say if the hybrid would be an existing nameplate like Outback or Forester. Chief Technology Officer Tetsuo Onuki said at the briefing, "Although we're using Toyota technology, we want to make hybrids that are distinctly Subaru.”

Even more changes are coming as Subaru will also collaborate with Toyota to develop its first all-electric all-wheel-drive vehicle for release around the same time (later this decade). This will be a vehicle that is distinctively a Subaru.


Other details emerged from the announcement, and Subaru spelled out the following long-term goals moving the global agenda towards achieving a carbon-free society.


By 2030, 40 percent of all Subaru global sales will come from electric vehicles (EVs) or hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs). By the first half of the 2030s, all Subaru vehicles sold worldwide will have either hybrid power or all-electric technology. Subaru Corporation will reduce its CO2 emissions from new vehicles (in operation) sold worldwide by 90 percent or more by 2050 compared to 2010 levels.

In addition to its commitment to sell only electric vehicles worldwide by the first half of the 2030s, Subaru will also reduce emissions at its factories and offices to 30 percent below 2017 levels by 2031.


Customers can look for new hybrid and all-electric all-wheel vehicles to arrive soon, and existing nameplates like Outback wagon, Forester compact SUV, and Ascent family hauler models will be electrified by the first half of the 2030s.

Toggle %s Subaru F.U.C.K.S edition 2020 revealed: NSFW sports SUV shocks

Posted By:  aekOne @ 21 January 2020 - 11:36 AM

Subaru has shocked attendees at the Singapore motor show with the reveal of a sporty edition of its popular mid-size SUV called Forester Ultimate Customised Kit Special. Daring acronym aside, the new edition serves up a tasty preview of what a high-performance Forester STI could look like, which come to think of it, is another unfortunate abbreviation.

Finished in striking blue paintwork with plenty of red accents, the latest Forester rides on 20-inch Enkei alloy wheels wrapped in low-profile tyres. Green brake callipers sit behind the rims if that’s not enough visual punch for you, while canards are located to their sides.

And let’s not forget the new Forester’s large rear spoiler (sitting atop the standard item) and darkened headlights and tail-lights. Inside, leather and suede upholstery with red stitching dominates alongside blue footwell lighting, while an ‘STI’ gear selector hammers home the point. Rear passengers also get a pair of multimedia displays to enjoy.

While the latest Forester clearly has sporting intentions, what sits in its engine bay is currently unknown. A hard-hitting turbocharger, perhaps? One can hope. That said, a better soundtrack than usual is guaranteed, as the new Forester has an upgraded audio system featuring a subwoofer and Focal amplifiers enclosed in a glass case in its boot.
