The All-New 2024 Subaru Outback EV Imagined

Subaru says new all-electric models are coming soon. Check out the 2024 Subaru Outback EV imagined.

Subaru Corporation recently announced they will build a dedicated all-electric model plant by 2027 and begin manufacturing new EV models as they ramp up battery-electric production in the next five years. What will be Subaru’s next EV after the 2023 Solterra Compact SUV?

Subaru says they will design their models and won’t rely on Toyota to collaborate on its next all-wheel-drive EVs. Subaru will build a dedicated EV factory on the site of its Oizumi plant, which now makes engines and transmissions. We recently showed a Solterra EV compact pickup, and now our friend Mike Nichoson designed a new 2024 Subaru Outback that Subaru of America needs to offer customers.

Subaru will manufacture the new all-electric all-wheel-drive vehicles for U.S. customers and global markets. Subaru CEO Tomomi Nakamura said recently they are still contemplating what kind of segment or models the upcoming EVs will be and did not offer a production capacity figure for the new EV production facility. He said they would start small with room to expand over time, a report from Automotive News said.

We think the 2024 Subaru Outback EV pictured here would be a good place for Subaru Corporation to start. The Outback is now Subaru of America’s top-selling model in the all-wheel-drive lineup. The Outback leads Forester and Crosstrek in sales in the first five months of 2022.

What can U.S. customers expect in the next five years?

Subaru says by 2025; it will begin introducing its next-generation hybrid models based on gasoline-electric powertrains provided by Toyota, similar to the 2022 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid. Customers can expect Forester, Outback, and Ascent hybrid SUVs by 2025.

Subaru could label the new hybrids e-Boxers, like they do in Japan, Australia, and Europe. Subaru said it would invest $2.05 billion in the new hybrid and electric vehicle initiatives over the next five years.

In addition to the 2023 Subaru Solterra EV compact SUV, Customers in the U.S. will have more new all-wheel-drive all-electric models coming by 2027. Would you buy a 2024 Subaru Outback EV? Let Subaru of America know what you’d like to see in the comments below.

So how long until l can purchase one? How much? Sun roof?
As both an EV owner (Chevy Bolt) and an Outback owner, I applaud Subaru for finally jumping in with both feet, but I'm not sure they're ready for such a heavy lift by themselves. An Outback designed primarily as an EV would be ideal, but we've taken our Outback on road trips where the EV infrastructure is still very weak (around Glacier NP, for example), so having a PHEV or range-extender option would probably make more sense until the energy density/$ gets a little higher. A car the size of an Outback would need at least an 80 kWh pack (probably closer to 100) to get close to the kind of range current owners expect, and a pack that size at today's prices would be prohibitively expensive. So, I'm curious to see how they end up solving this issue. PHEV certainly works well enough for the RAV4 Prime, so that would be my bet. In fact, I'm surprised that there is still no Outback hybrid option.
Would like to see a outback hybrid real soon and be able to get one in North Carolina.
I don't want an all-electric Outback. I want a plug-in hybrid Outback. I've been set on buying an Outback as my next vehicle for a couple of years now, but lately I have been intrigued by the Hyundai PHEV Tucson. If Subaru could just give me an Outback like that!
Why is Subaru going full blast with EV? A more practical option would be Hybrids. I don't understand their thinking.
EV’s are the go as far less maintenance, range with new battery technology could be 800-1100 kms once commercialised
Electric Outback 350 miles plus per charge with solar panel roof. And inverter built in.
I currently am driving my 6th Outback and am delighted to hear about an electric Outback being available in 2024. I’ve been following news on the Soltera, but am disappointed it’s range is only 210 miles. I’m hoping future ranges will be 320/350 miles which most other electric cars. Keep me of updates on the Outback. Thank you
YES, sign me up! I will test drive it like it's really needs to be!
The EV charging infrastructure out where I drive my Outback is near non-existing. Furthermore, EV charging takes quite a bit more time than filling up with gas. Standing around a charging station in the middle of nowhere waiting for the EV to charge up can get old very quickly. Given how I use my Outback, a hybrid or even a PHEV, makes a lot more sense. I was actually seriously considering getting the Crosstrek Hybrid, but was told it was unavailable here in Minnesota. Around town is a different matter. My EV holds enough charge for a typical day driving around town, and I can charge it up overnight at home. But I'd never drive my EV to where my Outback takes me to.
I’m ready for an E boxer vehicle Ascent and or Outback. I would also be very much interested in an EV version of the Outback depending on its driving range statistics.
I live in a tiny mountain town. 0 public chargers. O electric vehicles here.
