The greatest story out of the Subaru camp in Geneva is the new Viziv Adrenaline idea, however two increasingly passerby uncovers have a lot higher effects on quick creation. Subaru appeared the new e-Boxer mixture powertrain in both the Forester and the XV, the first jolted Subarus for Europe.
The unveilings come after Subaru flaunted the Forester STI e-Boxer idea at the Tokyo Auto Salon, which to some degree anticipated what we’d see here. Not at all like America’s XV Crosstrek crossover that utilizes a module setup, these models are cordless. Truth be told, all things considered, the main genuine sign these are cross breed models are a couple modest identifications on the front quarter and the back, just as some trim-explicit styling.
Both the XV and the Forester utilize a similar e-Boxer powertrain. It joins an on a level plane restricted 2.0-liter four-chamber motor that is evaluated at 148 strength and 143 lb-ft of torque and a 16-pull electric engine that is coordinated into the transmission. Vitality is put away in a 118-volt lithium-particle battery pack that has a most extreme yield of 13.5 kW. This powertrain is matched with Subaru’s Lineartronic transmission and symmetrical AWD in the two models.
Subaru rushes to call attention to the benefits of the situation of the cross breed powertrain. Since the battery is situated on the back hub, e-Boxer autos have not just a lower focal point of gravity than the customary ICE models, they additionally have better weight dispersion. The two attributes ought to improve the taking care of and ride nature of the two vehicles.
Subaru did not give further subtleties on eco-friendliness numbers or valuing, however it hopes to have the Forester and XV e-Boxers out and about in Europe by fall 2019. There is no word yet concerning whether the e-Boxer powertrain could come to America, yet it’s improbable considering the XV PHEV as of now exists here.
