Patiently Waiting for EV from Subaru

Subaru is taking their campaign, “Subaru Loves the Earth,” very seriously.  Subaru of America has announced that it will be making it’s first line of electric cars.  Not only does this green automotive manufacturer make sure that environmentally conscious projects are funded such as the National Wildlife Federation, they also want to ensure their vehicles are in line with their core green values.  Subaru is prioritizing spending on electrification over other technologies, like autonomous driving and connected cars, as it races to bring a plug-in hybrid model to market next year and an all-electric vehicle by 2021. The company is budgeting $1.2 billion on research and development in the following 12 months through March 2018, more than double what it spent in the year ended March 2014.  For Subaru lovers, this is great, the preferred look of the U.S. Crosstrek or the Japanese XV Crossover will be available, but as an electric vehicle (EV). 

Most cars produce a lot of carbon emissions that are ejected into our natural atmosphere, leaving us vulnerable to things like pollution and greenhouse gases. Subaru is fully aware of this concern and hopes that by offering an EV model it will positively impact the environment.  Helping the earth in this fashion is a great step forward. By buying an electric car, you can also receive government subsidies for being environmentally conscious. Although you may end up paying more for your vehicle, the positives greatly overshadow the negatives.  Electric cars are entirely charged by the electricity you provide, meaning you don’t need to buy any gas ever again. Driving fuel based cars can burn a hole in your pocket as prices of fuel have gone all time high. With electric cars, this cost can be avoided as an average American spends $2000 – $4000 on gas each year, and lets not forget about the city drivers that put so much wear and tear on their cars going no more than 50 miles per day. 

Electric cars are extremely eco-friendly as they run on electrically powered engines. It does not emit toxic gases or smoke in the environment as it runs on clean energy source. They are even better than hybrid cars as hybrids running on gas produce emissions. You’ll be contributing to a healthy and green climate. For all current Subaru vehicles, they currently use the OBD-II system monitors the evaporative emissions system by drawing the system to a negative pressure. If the system holds vacuum, it passes the test. If the system fails to hold vacuum for the prescribed period, it fails and a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) P04440 is stored in the ECM memory.  Once the release of the hybrid and most simnifically the full EV versions, they will be completely eco-friendly from an emissions stand point.

Although Subaru’s vehicles are already quiet, minimizing the noise pollution, there will be virtually no noise disruptions created by their vehicles.  Subaru knows that electric vehicles significantly descries the noise pollution since they are much quieter. Electric motors are capable of providing smooth drive with higher acceleration over longer distances.  So as we patiently wait for the EV from Subaru, be sure to come in to see for yourself why Subaru is insisting on keeping the same high-quality standards in comfort and performance, but introducing it in a cleaner version.
