Making its New York Auto Show debut, the 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid prepares to go on sale at Subaru dealerships such as Phoenix, AZâ€™s Moore Auto Group early next year
Online PR News – 12-April-2013 – Peoria Arizona – Subaru of America, Inc. has recently unveiled their first-ever production hybrid. Making its debut at the 2013 New York International Auto Show, the 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek will be the most fuel-efficient and lowest-emissions AWD hybrid crossover in the nation. Subaru plans for the 2014 XV Crosstrek Hybrid to go on sale early 2014 and Moore Auto Group of Phoenix, AZ has all the details.
The 2014 XV Crosstrek Hybrid is powered by Subaruâ€™s 2.0-liter BOXER engine rated at 148 horsepower, paired with a 13.4 horsepower electric motor and a 13.5 kW nickel-metal-hydride battery to deliver performance, handling and efficiency. The continuously variable transmission optimizes efficiency and power while providing drivers with a smooth ride. EPA estimates the new hybrid to return 28 city/ 34 highway miles per gallon as well.
â€śUnder light acceleration, the Subaru-engineered hybrid system uses the electric motor for initial vehicle acceleration and then starts the gasoline engine once underway,â€ť Subaru explains in a recent press release. â€śThe electric motor can also provide motor assist for acceleration in parallel with the gasoline engine, and an EV mode will operate the vehicle in certain low-speed situations.â€ť
The new XV Crosstrek Hybrid will sport several unique features to set it apart from its popular crossover base. The outside will sport HYBRID badges around the front edges of the doors as well as the tailgate while a Plasma Green Pearl exterior color will be exclusive to the hybrid crossover. On the inside, the XV Crosstrek Hybrid will highlight a clean, cool blue theme with sliver trim, a new instrument cluster and a Color Multi-Function Display to show drivers their hybrid systemâ€™s energy flow.
