Subaru XV & Forester e-Boxer Ready For Europe

By  | 

Subaru had a lot to show at the Geneva Motor Show this year and one of the highlights would probably be the e-Boxer hybrid powertrain that will be offered with the Subaru XV and Subaru Forester in Europe.

Unlike the plug-in version that we are getting here in the US, these models will be cordless. The only way that Subaru is showing that it is a hybrid is some of the badges on the outside and some minor styling changes.

The hybrid powertrain will consist of a 2.0 liter four cylinder engine that will be offering about 148hp. The engine will be paired with an electric motor that will be offering an additionla 16hp. The hybrid engine will be mated to a Lineartronic transmission.

Details like price and fuel effiicency are still a mystery for now but they are expected to arrive in Europe this fall.
