Subaru Crosstrek e-Boxer Hybrid

The e-Boxer Hybrid doesn’t just handle our wild coastlines, mountainous ranges and the roads which connect them. It handles them with care. While the new platform introduces a Hybrid engine, it’s still all Subaru. That’s because our legendary All-Wheel Drive, its all-terrain capabilities, and the Boxer engine’s low centre of gravity, all help you take on any terrain. While the Hybrid engine gives you greater fuel efficiency and treads more lightly on this beautiful place we call home.

Hybrid features

The Subaru e-Boxer Hybrid is self-charging using kinetic energy.

What is e-Boxer?

The Subaru e-Boxer Hybrids are built from Subaru DNA with everything that makes a Subaru, a Subaru. Taking the unique Boxer engines with their low centre of gravity, the Subaru e-Boxer Hybrids use electric power from a compact lithium-ion battery and electric motor to assist the regular internal combustion engine.

The e-Boxer Hybrids change between different driving modes to match the conditions, including Motor Assist, Engine Only and Electric Vehicle only.

EFFORTLESS EFFICIENCY

Engineered to provide efficiency, the all-new Subaru e-Boxer Hybrids are powered by a unique e-Boxer engine. The vehicles feature an electric motor and high voltage battery, combined with a Boxer petrol engine to deliver a totally new driving experience.

Designed to provide better low-speed acceleration and torque for a more responsive drive, effortless driving efficiency and reduced fuel consumption compared to their standard petrol models, the Subaru e-Boxer Hybrids are ready to explore New Zealand.

CHARGING ON THE GO

The Subaru e-Boxer Hybrids enable you to charge the battery without having to plug it in. When you decelerate or brake, energy from the vehicle’s movement is captured and used to recharge the battery. Delivering the efficiency of a hybrid, with no strings attached.

The Multi-Function Display shows when the vehicle is charging the battery while you're driving.

A perfect match for all conditions

Our Subaru e-Boxer Hybrids are built from Subaru DNA, with all the capability you'd expect from a Subaru to enable you to get out and explore New Zealand. 

Using the power from a compact battery and electric motor to assist the petrol engine, the e-Boxer Hybrids can automatically change between different driving modes to match the conditions. These driving modes are, Petrol Engine only, Electric Vehicle only and Motor Assist. 

With All-Wheel Drive as standard as well as the symmetrical drive train in the e-Boxer Hybrid, the vehicles have an innate sense of balance from the ground up and provide grip to all four wheels for a better driving experience.

  • Subaru e-boxer electric start
    An electric start

    In certain conditions such as when gently pulling away or driving at low speeds, the battery-powered electric motor alone drives the car. The petrol engine remains off, using no fuel and achieving zero emissions.

  • Subaru e-Boxer engine power
    Engine power to share

    When cruising, the petrol engine alone is the most suitable power source, delivering the dynamic performance you expect from a Subaru. The engine also powers the electric generator to recharge the electric motor’s battery.

  • Subaru e-hybrid motor assist
    Motor Assist for swift acceleration

    Whether under full acceleration or tackling a steep ascent, with Motor Assist both the petrol engine and electric motor work together providing instant, responsive power. Excess engine power also recharges the battery.

  • Subaru Plug free charging
    Plug-free charging

    Harnessing a process called regenerative braking, Subaru Hybrids are self-charging, so you never have to plug them in – ever! The system captures wasted brake energy as you drive and redirects that kinetic energy to recharge the electric motor’s battery.

  • Subaru e-Boxer all terrain
    Confidence under all conditions

    Superior balance equals superior vehicle control. That’s why our Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system and a symmetrical drivetrain work together to deliver an innate sense of balance from the ground up.

  • Subaru connectivity features
    Connectivity

    Bluetooth® handsfree calling. Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ through USB connection.

  • Subaru e-Boxer eyesight
    Second pair of eyes

    Subaru’s clever crash avoidance technology EyeSight® uses stereo cameras to identify potentially dangerous situations and helps avoid accidents before they happen. If danger is detected, audible and visual warnings urge you to take action and brake. If the driver does not take action, the vehicle may apply active braking intervention to either avoid an accident or reduce the severity of the impact.

  • Subaru e-Boxer xmode
    X-Mode

    Tricky descents. Whatever life throws at you, whatever obstacles get in your way, Motor Assist further enhances X-Mode’s rough-road capability by enabling easy and quick torque control.
