The word “electrification” has been a buzz since the 2010s. Now you can hear more of it as automakers work into reducing vehicle emissions. Subaru, the Japanese automaker, shared its future roadmap, which will emphasize more electrified models. It confirmed that models like the Outback, the BRZ, Forester, and the WRX STI would utilize some kind of electrification in the powertrain. The automaker announced plans to do away with gasoline-powered cars in the next 15 years or so.
Let’s get to know about these electric models here:
    1. Outback
Subaru’s base engine is a 2.5-liter boxer four-cylinder one that provides 182 horsepower until 5,800 rpm. The peak torque is 176 pound-feet at 4,400 rpm. It, however, compensates with the optional XT engine, which is a 2.4-liter turbocharged offering 260 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque. Not to forget, the turbo four assumes the place of the 3.6-liter flat-six – something that comes out through 2019.
    2. Forester
Subaru Forester comes in a new set of shoes. The auto-giant’s all-wheel-drive system is perfectly fine. However, the all-wheel power is not a replacement for the winter tires. The wheels of the car are light in weight and have gold 17-inch Sparco wheels. 
    3. BRZ
Subaru BRZ is officially confirmed to launch as a second generation. The grille and headlights resemble that of a Toyota 86. More camouflage present on the trunk lid hides the prominent BRZ badge as well as the taillights. However, the window-level badging continues to be visible below the wrapping. 
The tire-level pin is something new that Subaru could be embracing. It features a more Toyota 86-type design. However, a special edition of the model is in the making. We can only hope that it comes with more than simple design tweaks and that the models get a hearty farewell before the latest generation arrives.
    4. WRX STI
Lastly, the Subaru WRX STI is the automaker’s more powerful, more high-tech, and more expensive older brother to the WRX. The all-wheel-drive of the WRX STI is complete with a sophisticated electronically operated center differential. This, along with a six-speed manual transmission, harnesses a turbocharged 2.5-liter flat-four engine. Nonetheless, the 310 horsepower and 290 pound-feet of torque prove a competitive offering within its class.
