Subaru has been slow to introduce electric technology, only offering the Crosstrek plug-in hybrid with 17 miles of EV range. That will change in 2021 when the outdoorsy brand launches an all-electric model. It will likely be an electric variant of an existing nameplate.
Evidence of a 2021 Subby EV is based on Japanese and U.S. reports about a new global platform for the company. That platform reportedly will accommodate gasoline, hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and all-electric drivetrains for popular models, like the Forester and Outback. See the above image of the Subaru Viziv Concept for hints at the brand’s future styling.
