Subaru e-Boxer Hybrids on sale now

Keep NZ beautiful.
Then go see it.

The new e-Boxer Hybrid doesn’t just handle our wild coastlines, mountainous ranges and the roads which connect them. It handles them with care. While the new platform introduces a Hybrid engine, it’s still all Subaru. That’s because our legendary All-Wheel Drive, its all-terrain capabilities, and the Boxer engine’s low centre of gravity, all help you take on any terrain. While the Hybrid engine gives you greater fuel efficiency and treads more lightly on this beautiful place we call home.

The Subaru XV and Forester e-Boxer models have arrived in New Zealand and are available for test drives now. But with pricing from just $44,990*, and limited production available this year, fortune favours those that secure one quick.

Subaru e-hybrid motor assist
Motor Assist for swift acceleration

Whether under full acceleration or tackling a steep ascent, with Motor Assist both the petrol engine and electric motor work together providing instant, responsive power. Excess engine power also recharges the battery.

An electric start

In certain conditions such as when gently pulling away or driving at low speeds, the battery-powered electric motor alone drives the car. The petrol engine remains off, using no fuel and achieving zero emissions.

Engine power to share

When cruising, the petrol engine alone is the most suitable power source, delivering the dynamic performance you expect from a Subaru. The engine also powers the electric generator to recharge the electric motor’s battery.

Plug-free charging

Harnessing a process called regenerative braking, Subaru Hybrids are self-charging, so you never have to plug them in – ever! The system captures wasted brake energy as you drive and redirects that kinetic energy to recharge the electric motor’s battery.

Confidence under all conditions

Superior balance equals superior vehicle control. That’s why our Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system and a symmetrical drivetrain work together to deliver an innate sense of balance from the ground up.

Subaru’s clever crash avoidance technology EyeSight® uses stereo cameras to identify potentially dangerous situations and helps avoid accidents before they happen. If danger is detected, audible and visual warnings urge you to take action and brake. If the driver does not take action, the vehicle may apply active braking intervention to either avoid an accident or reduce the severity of the impact.
