Subaru to Bring Hybrid Tourer Concept in Tokyo
The newly developed power unit system aims to improve fuel efficiency and reduce emissions, while also delivering an improved torque and response in practical range. Furthermore, Subaru expects to achieve this by reinforcing parts for use with the high-power output of a turbo engine, paired to its Lineartronic automatic transmission.
The concept’s hybrid system is based on the Symmetrical AWD system, a hybrid two-motor system which features a power/drive motor in the front and a drive motor in the rear. In fact, the system is based on the experience the Japanese automaker gained with the launch of the Subaru Plug-in STELLA electric vehicle earlier this summer.
Subaru also integrated EyeSight in the Hybrid Concept, a driving assist system that uses a stereo camera and a specialized 3D image processing engine, for pre-collision safety and recognition of both pedestrians and cyclists as well. Specifically, this system continuously detects vehicles that move into and out of blind spots, and advises the driver on appropriate driving maneuvers.
