Hybrid Technology

90 MPGe[1] with Subaru StarDrive Technology

The Crosstrek Hybrid uses Subaru StarDrive Technology to combine the efficiency of a plug-in electric vehicle for city commuting with the long-range capability of a SUBARU BOXER gasoline engine for road trips without limits. The gas engine charges the electric battery even if you can't plug in, so there's no worry about running out of electric power. The Crosstrek Hybrid provides up to 90 MPGe and up to 480 miles of total vehicle range[2], all with the confidence of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive.

All of the power. All of the efficiency. All of the confidence.

Subaru StarDrive Technology is smartly designed to give you ultimate freedom. Simply drive how you want and this advanced system automatically optimizes power, torque, and fuel efficiency to deliver not only improved acceleration but up to 90 MPGe. Take on any adventure and leave worries behind.

Everyday Driving

The system will run on a combination of electric and gas power. To maximize efficiency, the Crosstrek Hybrid automatically draws power from the hybrid battery first. The battery also recharges by harnessing kinetic energy, such as when you’re coasting downhill or whenever you take your foot off the throttle. The system can also draw more power from the gas engine when you need it. It constantly works to maximize power and efficiency so you don’t have to worry about either.

All-Electric Power

The Crosstrek Hybrid will automatically drive in all-electric mode as much as possible, saving you fuel costs by achieving up to 90 MPGe while still delivering generous off-the-line power. When the weather turns, only Subaru gives you the confidence of standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive.

When you want to maintain the battery’s charge level, Battery Save Mode directs the gas engine to provide most of the power while keeping the battery level as constant as possible. This is useful when you’re taking a longer trip and plan to do more electric driving later.

Charging on the Go

The Crosstrek Hybrid battery automatically recharges while you’re on the road. When the battery gets low, the gas engine will automatically start and begin to recharge. You can also charge the battery by driving in Battery Charge Mode, which directs the gas engine to charge the battery at all times, even when the vehicle is stopped – gaining up to 33% of battery capacity in 30 minutes of driving.

Hybrid Technology

Plug-In Charging

You can charge the Crosstrek Hybrid at home using the included charger or anywhere with a standard outlet. When plugged into a 120V household outlet (Level 1), the Crosstrek Hybrid can take approximately five hours to completely charge a fully depleted battery. When using a 240V outlet (Level 2), a full charge only takes approximately two hours. Most commercial charging stations use the 240V charging capability, enabling faster charge times for your Crosstrek Hybrid.

Charge on the Go at Over 46,000 Charging Stations

Wherever your Crosstrek Hybrid takes you, chances are you'll be close to one of over 46,000 public Level 2 charging stations across the country through EVgo and EVgo roaming partners[3]. EVgo is the preferred charging partner of Subaru and the first public EV fast-charging network in the U.S. to be powered by 100% renewable energy.

Smart Savings

A Value That Lasts

The Crosstrek Hybrid is a value that gets better with every mile - not just because it's a hybrid, but because it's a Subaru. 96% of Subaru vehicles sold in the last 10 years are still on the road today [4].

Frequently Asked Questions

A plug-in hybrid vehicle uses both an electric motor and gas-powered engine to optimize fuel efficiency and reduce vehicle emissions. The battery is large enough to enable electric-only operation, allowing the vehicle to be powered completely by its electric engine over limited range and can be charged at home or a charging station as well as by its gas-powered engine.

Owners can charge their vehicle at home or anywhere there’s a 120V outlet using the included Level 1 charging cable – or at any charging station with a 240V/Level 2 charger. With the Charge Finder app, drivers are able to locate thousands of charging stations throughout the country on their STARLINK Multimedia screen.
