Subaru introducing 2019 Crosstrek plug-in hybrid with Toyota Hybrid System

Subaru will launch its first plug-in hybrid with a little help from Toyota

The Crosstrek Hybrid will thus beat the rumored Subaru "Evoltis" to dealerships, despite the supposed death of the Crosstrek Hybrid project in 2016. 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.

The 2019 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid will be the Japanese automaker's first production plug-in hybrid model.

Another contender to commence the Australian Subaru hybrid foray here will be an electrified version of the all-new Forester due later this year, but this too will find its way to other countries long before our market. The new Crosstrek Hybrid maintains all the capability of the traditional Subaru Crosstrek with increased fuel efficiency. The 2019 Crosstrek Hybrid will come with Subaru's four-cylinder BOXER engine and a Toyota Hybrid System (THS).

The Subaru announcement also detailed that the auto will use a version of the Toyota hybrid system from the Prius Prime. Those numbers keep going up; as of the end of April, Subaru has sold 45,728 Crosstrek models, compared to 27,456 units this time a year ago. It is built around the Subaru Global Platform that was created to accommodate hybrid and electric powertrains. You can also drive the Crosstrek Hybrid on pure-electric power, but its official fuel economy and range capabilities have not been announced just yet. The hybrid model will land at Subaru dealers near the end of this year and will 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.
