Why did it take Subaru so long to bring out their first-ever Crosstrek plug-in hybrid vehicle? It was a calculated move that could pay big dividends.
Subaru is criticized for moving slowly in their plug-in hybrid and EV development, but itís actually a calculated move by the small Japanese automaker. Subaru will launch their all-new 2019 Crosstrek plug-in hybrid later this year and it seems slow to show when other automakers have many PHEVs in their lineup. According to a recent report from Bloomberg
, Subaru is waiting for other automakers to spend the big money on research and development, while they wait until the time is right to move.
