I wouldn’t hold my breath on that. There are rumors abuzz about a Crosstrek style EV which could be interesting but who knows if it is a JDM release or something like that. Subaru unfortunately is at a disadvantage compared to Tesla like everyone else because of the charging infrastructure.2) I wish it was a BEV and didn't have a gas engine. The car drives better in EV mode than when the rough/under-powered ICE is in use.
I am looking forward to a future Subaru BEV.
I could possibly consider a Subaru EV but everything else would have to be right. I don’t know that they can launch something aggressively priced enough to sway me from, say, a Model 3 SR+ all things considered which is close to the same cost of the Crosstrek PH.
That being said I was also a big fan of the Trek when it ran in full EV mode. I did find the Planetary style CVT much more smoother than the lineatronic chain one in my Forester as well.
Did you consider one of the Model 3 SR’s that you have to call in to order? Those are 35k. Compared to an ICE car that would save you in the long run with fuel and maintenance.
