Welcome to the boards. Considering your username, what year WRX do you have ?!
Lol, unfortunately car insurance quite high in Toronto. Many of my buddies driving WRX and STi. I'm driving a 2017 Forester. I was thinking of using "Mr. Forester", but doesn't sound too catchy!Welcome to the boards. Considering your username, what year WRX do you have ?!
Oh, my wife driving an older 2001 Forester and eventually need to be replace soon.Ah that's not bad at all haha. I'm actually not on the forums though but I have heard of them!
If you're in a 17' Forester, why are you looking towards the Ascent? Just curious
The fuel economy didn't meet consumers demand. Is was Subaru's first hybrid and I'm sure they learned their lesson. The good news is, SBR working on the new hybrid system. Hopefully, the new hybrid will be much better.Subaru seems to be 50/50 on hybrids since not long ago they cancelled the crosstrek hybrid, not a good look for something that was a nice hybrid and fit well into the sort of hybrid people want.
Oh, I was refering the plug-in hybrid section. The Prominence 2020 give you the glismpe of Subaru direction.Which part of that are we focusing on exactly?? The product strategy segment where it talks about focusing on SUVs ??
“If there’s already an attractive Subaru model, for example the XV crossover, and if a customer in Beijing wants one but is only allowed to buy an electric vehicle, if there’s no electric version then he can’t buy it. Providing the choice of an EV means the customer can still desire the same Subaru.”
Pollution in China is terrible! I can understand why the Chinese government pushing on electric vehicles into the market.China is getting some big attention from car makers so an article like that might want to start asking about specific markets. In North America it should do well, Subaru has a good reputation and the market for that type of vehicle is still developing. At this point its a matter of seeing specs and pricing (LA Auto Show?)
It sure is but part of the pollution problem has to do with how they manufacture products which is done with no respect to the betterment of the environment. Seen a lot of documentaries that highlight on things like this. Already they have limitations on how many people can drive, so that's a start.Pollution in China is terrible!

Hopefully Subaru will debut the production model of the Ascent during LA auto show this November.
