Subaru Corporation announced recently that they will build an all-electric model factory by 2027, and start manufacturing new EV models in the future as they increase battery-electric production over the next five years. What is Subaru’s next electric vehicle after the 2023 Solterra Compact SUV?
Subaru claims it will design the models, and won’t depend on Toyota for help with its next all-wheel drive EVs. Subaru will construct an EV factory at the Oizumi plant. This Oizumi plant is currently producing engines and transmissions. We showed you a Solterra compact pickup for electric vehicles, and Mike Nicholson has designed the Subaru Outback 2024 that Subaru of America must offer its customers.
2024 Subaru Outback EV Review
Subaru will produce the new all-electric, all-wheel-drive Subaru vehicles for U.S. customers as well as global markets. Tomomi Nakamura, Subaru CEO, stated recently that they are still deciding on the type of EVs to produce and didn’t provide a figure for production capacity. According to Automotive News, he said that they would start small and expand as needed.
Subaru Corporation should consider the 2024 Subaru Outback Electric Vehicle (pictured here). Subaru of America’s best-selling all-wheel-drive model is the Outback. In the first five months of 2022, Outback sales outnumbered Crosstrek and Forester.
Subaru claims that it will start introducing next-generation hybrid models by 2025. These models will be powered by gasoline-electric powertrains supplied by Toyota. This is similar to the 2022 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid. By 2025, customers can expect hybrid SUVs from Subaru Forester, Outback, and Ascent.
Subaru could call the new hybrids boxers, just like in Japan, Australia, and Europe. Subaru stated that it will invest $2.05B in new hybrid and electric vehicle projects over the next five years.
The 2023 Subaru Solterra Evo compact SUV will be joined by more all-wheel-drive, all-electric models for customers in the United States. These models will arrive in 2027.

Specifications & Gas Mileage
If you’re looking for a regular model, a 2.5-liter flat-four engine will be your best choice. You also get the all-wheel drive and the CVT gearbox. Because of their opposite positions, Subaru’s flat-four engine is called a Boxer. This configuration is fuel-friendly with a combined 30 mpg (remember – AWD comes standard). The company is working to make the system even more efficient. With the base engine, electric batteries are a great option. The 2024 Subaru Outback Hybrid will likely produce 200 horsepower and match city fuel economy with highway return of around 34 mpg.
An alternative option is electrifying a turbocharged Boxer. This is unlikely as the Boxer’s 2.4-l turbo-four is the most powerful. The priority is the gas mileage. Outback XT has a maximum power output of 260 hp. It can accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 6 seconds. The configuration doesn’t require an electric boost, which can cause performance to suffer. A PHEV system, on the other hand, is possible to increase all numbers in the specifications sheet. Subaru can follow in the Toyota Rav4’s footsteps, which can produce 302 horsepower and return 38 mpg.
Subaru’s new Forester was introduced with a 1.8-liter engine. This engine configuration is only available for Japanese customers, but Subaru fans believe it will soon be made available to other countries. It produces 175 horsepower and 220 lb/ft of torque. The power output is comparable to that of the US version, but the torque gains a substantial boost.
Experts consider the new 1.8-liter engine the core of the 2024 Subaru Outback Hybrid. It’s possible. It is possible to find a Forester hybrid in Japan with a 2.5-l MHEV system. The Outback is larger and therefore has more power. However, potential buyers should also verify the vehicle’s gas mileage before buying.
Based on the Legacy sports sedan, the Outback crossover was created. The vehicle has been in production for over 35 years and has seen seven generations. The most recent version was introduced in 2020 so it is likely that the first visit will be soon. It is possible to see a new series in this segment after just 4 years. Subaru will not do the same with the Outback. The crossover will get its first facelift, with a new hybrid drivetrain.
The standard package will be followed by the 2024 Subaru Outback Hybrid. This one has advanced features that are only available in the higher trim levels. All models will be redesigned including the bumpers, headlights, and hood. The exterior will not be reshaped but the interior will see significant changes. There are 9 trim levels to choose from, with additional options for a hybrid engine. All packages will include a choice of three drivetrains: XT Turbo, standard 2.5, or Hybrid. Many people are asking about this combination of drivetrain setup and Wilderness trim. This is unlikely to be the case.
2024 Subaru Outback EV Release Date & Price
This market is among the fastest growing. Subaru isn’t among the leaders in this market, so the Outback Hybrid still has some work to do. Subbie is not among the leaders in this segment, which can achieve 40 mpg. It doesn’t necessarily have to be the best but you must show up.
The base Outback starts at $28,500 and the XT costs not less than $35,000. This is the area where we expect to see the entry-level Subaru Outback Hybrid 2024. Although the debut date has not been set, insiders claim that development is well underway. The last quarter of 2023 will be the time that sales begin. The redesign and the number of changes that the update brings will also affect the release date.
