New Subaru Forester, Crosstrek Electrified "e-Boxer" Models Surface In Geneva
Subaru needs to bring new electrified and hybrid models to the global market and Geneva, Switzerland is the place they show what’s coming next for global customers. Subaru brought a new 2020 Forester and Crosstrek (XV in Europe) “e-Boxer” with their electrification technology to the Geneva Motor Show this week.
Subaru is going electric and it all starts in Europe where Subaru Corporation unveiled the two new all-wheel-drive electrified SUVs to show the world what customers can expect from the Japanese automaker soon. Customers can see them at the 89th Geneva International Motor Show that runs from March 7-17.
Subaru will use the “e-Boxer” badge on both new models like the Japan-spec Forester and Crosstrek e-Boxer models recently launched in their home country. The new launches will be the Japanese automaker’s first electrified cars in the European market and it would give the brand their first traction into the electric car market.
Both Forester and Crosstrek e-Boxer models are powered by a 2.0-liter horizontally-opposed direct injection gas engine coupled with an electric motor integrated in the Lineartronic transmission. Subaru has not announced fuel-mileage estimates but says they will achieve improved fuel economy over the standard gas-only models and will deliver improved acceleration due to the extra torque from the electric motor.
Subaru Corp also unveiled the new “VIZIV Adrenaline Concept” Urban-Adventurer SUV at the Geneva Show this week. The new Subaru concept vehicle shows outdoor enthusiasts what they can expect in the near future. All-wheel-drive vehicles with a “go-anywhere” attitude has given the brand success and Subaru keeps its promise to produce new “bolder” expressions in their new future vehicles.
The new “e-Boxer” electrified Subaru Forester” and Crosstrek (XV) models will be in showrooms across European later this fall. Subaru will announce pricing closer to dealer launch.
