Description: You'd think that in the automotive industry today, an automaker that doesn't offer a hybrid in its lineup wouldn't be doing too well. That's not at all the case when it comes to Su...

Also another issue is market share. Hybrids account for a very small part of the market and for a small company like Subaru or Mazda to make a hybrid they are going after a small slice of a small slice of the market. Aka no money will be made

some patents from Ford and Toyota. You have no idea how the market is controlled by a few companies when it comes to Intellectual property rights.
Jason Brown Jan 30, 2013
other companies to develop hybrid tech without violating their patents. Hyundai when they first came up with hybrid sonata, violated over 300 patents in 2009. Mostly held by US motor companies. Eventually they developed hybrid tech with licensing
Jason Brown Jan 30, 2013
@Erich, you have no idea what you are talking about. It is difficult to develop Hybrid technology without violating Ford, GM and Toyota's patents. Each of those companies have hundreds of patents covering so many areas that makes it difficult for
Nick Sti Jan 29, 2013
Haha the WRX and STi definitely don't help the average.
Kieran Ward Feb 01, 2013
I love this!
Alex Medvedev Feb 01, 2013
Looks sick but side mirrors and rough edges ruin it
Steven Wilson Jan 31, 2013
I hope the production version looks like this. I love the front end and aggressive looks. Beats the pants off a Prius.
Timothy Hooker Jan 30, 2013
I really like this look. Nothing wrong with overly aggressive concepts...it just means that the production will be somewhat aggressive
Omar Hash Jan 30, 2013
I'm getting quickly tired from sharp angles which are on practically all new cars today. Was it Audi or Lamborghini that started that trend?
Dave Rain Jan 30, 2013
Come on people. You already know it won't look anything like this.
Jack Howard Jan 29, 2013
This picture is old
Ron Vinson Jan 29, 2013
Audi and Ford clone front end!
Gavin Jaunky Jan 29, 2013
Nothing Subaru-esque about this. Looks like it's just trying to catch up with Audi and Ford.
Scuttle Buttocks Jan 29, 2013
I've seen this months ago...what gives?
Roman Podrezov Jan 29, 2013
Hybrid, or not, this is a very good looking car. Hope it's performance matches the looks.
Danny Burns Jan 29, 2013
I'd roll that. Subaru makes some sweet pieces of machinery .
Nicolai Stålstrøm Dalen Jan 29, 2013
I remember this concept from a while back. Nice to see theyre actually building it.
Rithhin Jawahar Jan 29, 2013
Audi Kia hybrid :P
Nick Sti Jan 29, 2013
STi swap! This is a great looking wagon, tons better than the current outback
Ashton Summers Jan 29, 2013
Like a Ford and an Audi had a love child.
Drew Humphrey Jan 29, 2013
Sweet
Michael Moschonikolakis Jan 29, 2013
Yeah it does look like fusion but better!
David Parenti Jan 29, 2013
Digging the front end, and the wide stance.
Tn Ng Jan 29, 2013
Looks like a fusion, in a good way.
Chaz McDevitt Jan 29, 2013
the picture at the beginning, the rear, it looks like the new vette haha
Oscar Galvan Jan 29, 2013
Agreed
Matt Piccolo Jan 29, 2013
That looks sick
Description: That's all about to change as The Detroit Bureau reports Subaru will be unveiling its first hybrid as early as the New York Auto Show in late March. No other details were given in regards to whe...

Exactly. A 13hp electric motor can "easily" produce up to 100 torquehorsies
Sam Harris Jan 29, 2013
It's not the horse power that matters, its the amount of torque.
Austin Bride Jan 29, 2013
A whole 13 huh
James Klein Feb 10, 2013
They should build this
James Klein Feb 10, 2013
They should build this
Tyler Wallace Feb 03, 2013
Bacc looks like a GTR
Γιάννης Νικολάου Feb 01, 2013
Awesome exausts
Alex Medvedev Feb 01, 2013
Looks good on rear but bad rough edges
Andy Nongbu Demar Cho Jan 30, 2013
Wow looks good! First good design by Japanese automaker in a long time imo
Avery Doyal Jan 29, 2013
This looks heavy
Jordan Nishida Jan 29, 2013
The back is pretty cool
Brendan Bell Jan 29, 2013
That's pretty sweet
Daniel Alexander Soutar Jan 29, 2013
Superb. If Subaru makes its future cars more this than Impreza (hideous), I'll be happy.
Trey Reilly Jan 29, 2013
Pretty good Subaru...props.
Ron Vinson Jan 29, 2013
Corvette rear end.
Thomas Moore Jan 29, 2013
Looks good from the back! I agree with the other posts, I see some C7 there.
Dan Jardine Jan 29, 2013
Turbo 3.6 :)
Guo-Sheng Huang Jan 29, 2013
You build it, I buy it
John M Weishahn Jan 29, 2013
Wicked.
Rithhin Jawahar Jan 29, 2013
Don't like the black skirting around the exhaust
Nick Sti Jan 29, 2013
dat ASS
Phil Johnson Jan 29, 2013
I think this looks great!
Janak Solanki Jan 29, 2013
Looks like a transformer
Ryan Faber Jan 29, 2013
id drive the shit out of this. ill take mine with an LSX under the hood.
Ashton Summers Jan 29, 2013
Haha, at first glance I thought this was a rendering of a corvette shooting break.
Michael Moschonikolakis Jan 29, 2013
It looks like the back of the new Vette, that is if the Vette had a wagon option....
Tn Ng Jan 29, 2013
Nice.
Matt Piccolo Jan 29, 2013
This looks awesome. The line going straight down right after the light is a bit much, but other than that, it's perfect.
Nick Benz Jan 29, 2013
Looks fat
Patrick Schalk Jan 29, 2013
The lines are too harsh
John Darwin Price Jan 29, 2013
That's amazing.
Alex Medvedev Feb 01, 2013
Retarded just ruined entire review
Timothy Hooker Jan 30, 2013
Really don't understand what the goal was here...make it as least functional as possible?
Gurjit Singh Jan 30, 2013
overkill
Omar Hash Jan 30, 2013
Typo below. "Do not see..." should be "DO YOU NOT SEE..."
Omar Hash Jan 30, 2013
NO, you fools. This is NOT good. This is gimmickry. Do not see the Audi tones hidden with sharp angles. Look at the front grill, look at the lights, Look all over! Those doors cannot opened inside parking garages. This car is fraud. Designed by some young guy chinked high on weed.
Jordan Nishida Jan 29, 2013
Wow. Looks good
Tyler Wallace Jan 29, 2013
That's to much
Anthony Boggs Jan 29, 2013
Looks like its time to move into the Future!!!
Guo-Sheng Huang Jan 29, 2013
Oh 100 yes'
Sam Harris Jan 29, 2013
Cool doors, but highly impractical. And almost 100% chance, that it will never go on the production model.
Kwn Donoghue Jan 29, 2013
That is truly epic
Frederick Perez Jan 29, 2013
Show-off haha Nice!!
Preston Ming Jan 29, 2013
their stock will go up in my book
Preston Ming Jan 29, 2013
outside of the doors..this is the baddest ass Subaru I've seen..AND it's a hybrid?!? take that Prius, Leaf, and anything other "My Little Pony" lunchbox on wheels out on the market..if this design would translate across their other lines...
Cian Mac Gearailt Jan 29, 2013
Yes lets make a practical wagon for families and make sure you will never be able to park next to other cars ever again
Ashton Summers Jan 29, 2013
Hey, take a look at some cool doors that will never make it on the actual car.
Austin Bride Jan 29, 2013
Take that Lamborghini
