It's no surprise that Subaru chose the Crosstrek as its first hybrid pursuit; the Crosstrek has seen tremendous sales success recently, with its best April ever last month and a 69.9% year-over-year sales increase.

On Friday, May 11, Subaru of America announced its first plug-in hybrid vehicle will be the Crosstrek, available with partial electric power as of the 2019 model year, which will arrive on the market by the end of 2018. The 2019 Crosstrek Hybrid will come with Subaru's four-cylinder BOXER engine and a Toyota Hybrid System (THS). What's different, however, is the unique plug-in hybrid technology which will come from Toyota. Technical details have not yet been announced, but we know the model will retain its current flat-4-cylinder engine that will get a modified version of the hybrid system Toyota now uses in its Prius. There's now no information on system power or EV range, but Subaru says the Crosstrek will use Toyota-sourced hybrid technology.

The Crosstrek Hybrid however, will retain Subaru's signature flat-4 engine.

The Home Depot (HD) Shares Bought by IBM Retirement Fund
As such, it looks like Home Depot probably took a hit on earnings. (NYSE:HD) was sold by Carey Matt on Friday, December 8. Following the sale, the chief executive officer now owns 237,957 shares of the company's stock, valued at $43,734,117.03.

However, this is not Subaru's first venture into making an AWD hybrid.

Until a more concrete forecast is made public, the most likely prospect is the Subaru XV, a plug-in hybrid version of which has been announced in the United States, where the popular crossover is known as the Crosstek.

Subaru Australia managing director Colin Christie has previously said that a hybrid model is inevitable as emissions standards become tighter. It can be driven as a normal hybrid, using both petrol and electric power and eliminating range anxiety, or driven on pure electric drive for local commuting.
