The All-New 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.
