Subaru Reveals Its First Electric Vehicle Developed in Conjunction with Toyota

The Japanese company took 15 years to fully electrify the model range.

So far, the brand does not have any global electric models. Subaru's line-up will be electrified with the help of Toyota, a long-time partner and one of the leaders in this segment, by 2035.

Subaru held a meeting with the media, where it unveiled its strategic development plans. There, the Japanese automaker showed a design layout of an all-electric SUV, which was developed in collaboration with Toyota. Accordingly, the car does not have specifications or even a name, serving only to demonstrate the design direction and class affiliation.

Subaru CEO Tom Nakamura said that the company would continue to use its best technologies, referring to opposed Boxer engines and symmetrical all-wheel drive, and would also move with the times, thus having already begun to work on full electrification of the brand. The process is expected to be completed by 2035.

Currently, Subaru has the Crosstrek Hybrid, as well as the XV e-Boxer, Outback e-Boxer and Forester e-Boxer with light batteries.
