Subaru releases specs on the new 2019 Forester e-Boxer Hybrid.

The new-generation 2019 Subaru Forester with “Intelligent Boxer” power is coming with electric technology. Torque News broke the story back in April about a Chinese model, and now Subaru says the new 2019 Forester e-Boxer Hybrid will be available for pre-order in the Japan market.

Will it see U.S. shores?

Buried in the list of Subaru marketing terms, the key information is that this is a low-power (almost "mild") non-plug-in parallel hybrid. I wonder if it will be as ineffective as the failed Crosstrek hybrid? A description of the old Crosstrek's system is available from Subaru; nothing in the published announcement of the Forester hybrid suggests any change.
