Word On The Street Says…

Electric Subaru To Be Released?

That an all electric Subaru is due out in 2021. A Japanese newspaper suggests that a Subaru source claims they are hoping to release an electric CUV. A CUV that will be based on the Forester or Outback platform.

While Subaru is being hush hush on the details, we can assume this car will be built on Subaru’s new Global Platform. Electric and All Wheel Drive? Win-win!
