Subaru's first EVs to be based on Forester
Subaru has already started the development of what will be its first electric car, expected to debut initially in Japan from 2021.
The model will be based on the Forester SUV chassis which is very popular not only in the Rising Sun country, but also in the other main international markets.
The choice of Subaru technicians to draw inspiration from Forester is also explained by the generous space available for the batteries.
The first Subaru's EV, which will later be marketed in the United States and China, will be produced at the plant in Gunma Prefecture, north of Tokyo.
