Engine for the Subaru Forester e-Boxer

From a standing start, and when travelling at low speeds, the new model is powered by electric alone.
At medium speed, the engine and motor work together to deliver fuel-efficient motoring and at high speed, the engine works alone.
Subaru says that the 2.0-litre offering delivers responsive torque across the range and the driver-selectable modes help deliver the fun with drivers able to choose ‘sport’ or ‘intelligent’ for enjoyment.
