subaru canada logoMISSISSAUGA, ON, Nov. 19, 2018 /CNW/ - Subaru Canada, Inc. (SCI) announced today the brand's first-ever plug-in hybrid vehicle based on the 2020 Crosstrek.

The new plug-in hybrid maintains all the capability of the traditional Subaru Crosstrek with increased fuel efficiency thanks to its plug-in hybrid powertrain. It can be driven as a conventional hybrid vehicle, using both electric and gas power to eliminate range anxiety, or driven on pure electric power for efficient local commuting.

"Our dealers and customers have asked for a vehicle like this and we listened," said SCI president, chairman and CEO Yasushi Enami. "We're excited to expand our well-rounded lineup with an alternative powertrain vehicle that offers the benefits of electrification without the hassle of range anxiety."

The Crosstrek-based plug-in hybrid is an advanced, eco-friendly version of the versatile compact SUV that packs the capability of a Subaru SUV in a city-sized package.

Arriving at Subaru dealers near the end of next year, the 2020 Crosstrek-based plug-in hybrid will also feature unique styling, calling out its distinct abilities. Like the gas-powered Crosstrek, the plug-in hybrid version is built around the Subaru Global Platform that was designed to accommodate hybrid and electric powertrains.
