Subaru Viziv Concept Previews Future Styling, Diesel-Hybrid Tech
At the 2013 Geneva Motor Show today, Subaru held the worldwide debut of its Viziv Concept, a future-generation crossover concept with a Subaru Boxer Diesel Hybrid under the hood.
The Subaru Boxer Diesel Hybrid is a proposal to the future of Subaru powerplants, which combines a 2.0-liter Subaru Boxer diesel engine with a plug-in hybrid system. A high-torque-compatible Lineartronic (CVT) features a front motor that provides both vehicle drive and power generation while two independent rear motors are used for vehicle drive only. The powertrain selects the best time to use each power unit helping achieve high fuel economy.
