Could Subaru Discontinue Manual Transmissions in the Name of Safety?

  Could Subaru Discontinue Manual Transmissions in the Name of Safety? One U.K. executive thinks it's possibleThe manual transmission is a dying breed. That's not news. Modern cars are slowly killing off three-pedal driving in favor of more efficient automatic transmissions. Subaru still offers a manual transmission option on several models but that might not be the case for much longer.

The Subaru Crosstrek integrates a Toyota hybrid system, adding electric propulsion to the popular model.

Subaru officially announced its first plug - in hybrid model – the 2019 Crosstrek Hybrid , that will enter the U. S . market near the end of 2018.

On Friday, May 11, Subaru of America announced its first plug-in hybrid vehicle will be the Crosstrek, available with partial electric power as of the 2019 model year, which will arrive on the market by the end of 2018. The Crosstrek Hybrid will thus beat the rumored Subaru "Evoltis" to dealerships, despite the supposed death of the Crosstrek Hybrid project in 2016.

From the story:“A Ferrari V8 hybrid is coming for 2019. The test mules are around now,” Marchionne confirmed. Marchionne claims that the new powertrain “needs to become more of a traditional hybrid [than the LaFerrari] to fulfill a different role.”“We will embrace electrification.

Subaru says the Crosstrek Hybrid will retain the capabilities offered by the all-wheel-drive systems integral to the brand's identity while raising fuel efficiency with bursts of electric power.

Thankfully, Subaru understands this part of its demographic and is ready to pull the sheet off of its first -ever plug - in hybrid and resurrect the Crosstrek Hybrid nameplate.

A Toyota hybrid system, borrowed as part of the two companies' technical partnership, will provide the electric propulsion through a transmission unique to the Crosstrek Hybrid. The new drivetrain will be accommodated by Subaru's future-proofing Global Platform, which is shared with the base Crosstrek, but designed with hybrid or all-electric power in mind.

Subaru has not yet released photos of the Crosstrek Hybrid, but it promises the vehicle will boast styling that differs from the standard gas-only model. A rollout to Subaru dealerships by the end of the year is planned, but photos will presumably be released months in advance, to whip up interest. No MSRP was given as part of Subaru's announcement, but it is expected to be higher than the 2018 Crosstrek's entry price of $21,795.

The Drive reached out to Subaru with regard to its plans for hybridization of other near-future models, such as the Ascent SUV, but the company declined to comment.

You're probably more likely to associate Subaru with high-powered rally cars than any kind of eco-friendly transportation, but the automaker is determined to change that perception: it just unveiled plans for its first -ever plug - in hybrid . The 2019 Crosstrek Hybrid (not yet pictured)

Primary competition for the Crosstrek Hybrid may be the Toyota Prius Prime, which could share an approximate price window. Another several thousand dollars beyond are the Honda Clarity and Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, though of the above, only the Mitsubishi offers all-wheel-drive, which is among the primary attractions of Subaru's products.
