2022 Subaru Forester e-BOXER Bringing Hybrid Tech To The UK
The 2022 Subaru Forester range has grown in the UK with the launch of the automaker’s new e-BOXER powertrain.
Announced for the broader European market in January, the Forester e-BOXER that’s touched down in Great Britain combines a 2.0-liter horizontally-opposed four-cylinder engine with 147 hp coupled to an electric motor producing 16.5 hp and a new Lineartronic transmission. It also sports a 13.5 kWh battery pack.
This powertrain offers three distinct driving modes; Engine driving, EV driving, and Motor Assist driving. At low speeds, it is the electric motor alone that powers the vehicle while at medium speeds the electric motor is joined by the four-cylinder engine. At higher speeds, the four-cylinder alone powers the Forester e-BOXER and recharges the battery.
Subaru has yet to confirm when sales of the Forester e-BOXER will commence in the UK nor how much it will cost.
