XV is Subaru s first hybrid

Tue, 04/02/2013

Subaru has unveiled the XV Crosstrek Hybrid at the New York Motor Show.

It is Subaru’s first hybrid vehicle and the U.S. specification model balances XV’s fun-to-drive character and environmental friendliness. The simple and practical hybrid system is integrated into Subaru’s Symmetrical AWD system.

The motor assist function of the electric motor delivers increased torque, responsive power, economy and low emissions.

While its weight balance remains the same as the U.S. specification XV Crosstrek (known simply as the XV in New Zealand), chassis performance is refined exclusively for the hybrid model, delivering a sporty yet stable drive.

XV Crosstrek Hybrid will be introduced to the U.S. market later this year.

The hybrid system offers smooth and responsive acceleration with a motor assist function and the excellent fuel efficiency.

Based on the Lineartronic™ Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) of the petrol XV Crosstrek, a motor exclusively designed for the hybrid model is integrated inside the transmission case and installed behind the primary pulley.

A 2.0-litre DOHC horizontally-opposed four-cylinder petrol engine was partially modified for the hybrid model, including reduction in engine friction.

By installing the high voltage battery under the cargo space, the overall front/rear weight distribution and the low centre of gravity are maintained.

The hybrid system offers EV (Electric Vehicle) driving at low speeds and electrical motor assist driving at medium speeds. Enhanced fuel efficiency and responsive driving experience are achieved.

Exclusive tuning of the front and rear suspension, enhanced body rigidity and a quick steering gear ratio enhance the sportiness of the XV Crosstrek Hybrid.

A simple and clean design motif is adopted for the exterior and interior enhancements, which differentiate the car, form the petrol XV. The design embodies eco-friendliness and advanced technologies.

For the exterior, exclusive parts for the hybrid include rear combination lights and alloy wheel patterns. Hybrid badges are located at the front edges of the front doors and on the hatch.

Inside, the Multi-Function Display shows the hybrid system’s energy flow according to driving conditions. A new “Plasma Green Pearl” exterior colour is used on display car.
