I am curious to learn which global platform they end up using. I just posted elsewhere on Subaru's plans for releasing the 2019 EV Forrester in Japan. The media indicated the 2020 Forester might have a hybrid option, but it does not appear on their website for the US market. https://www.newbestsuv.com/2020-subaru-forester/
