When Subaru Will Produce Ascent 3-Row PHEV

We, at Torque News, have been asked by readers if Subaru will produce a 2019 Ascent plug-in hybrid. It could be coming soon. Here is the answer.

We think Subaru may develop their own proprietary hybrid technology in-house for the Ascent, coupled with the new 2.4-liter turbo engine or another smaller direst-injection turbo boxer engine.

But why plug in and not the usual kind of hybrid?
I think you need at least a plug-in to get the EV rebates. Personally, I would prefer a plug-in, just because where we live, most of the trips are pretty short. But there is usually a pretty hefty premium for EV of any kind, so need the rebate to make them feasible.
