A video has been published on the Web showing a conceptual version of the Subaru electric crossover.

Better late than never, but Subaru realized that electric cars are the future and there is no turning back. In an attempt to catch up with competing brands, the company teamed up with Toyota to jointly develop a new platform designed for battery-powered medium and large electric vehicles. In addition, the two brands are working together on a compact crossover that will be sold under each company’s own brand.

In fact, it looks more like a layout, as it seems to lack many elements, including brakes. All the windows are tinted, which means that the crossover with zero emissions did not have a finished cabin, or Subaru simply did not want people to look inside. The lack of conventional door handles is also a sign that the concept is far from the conveyor. The novelty also received side cameras instead of traditional mirrors, which are now permitted by law in Japan.

As representatives of Subaru said during a briefing at home in the Land of the Rising Sun, the company plans that by 2030 electric cars and hybrids account for at least 40% of sales, and by the middle of this decade exclusively electric cars were sold. By 2025, Subaru wants to reduce average CO2 emissions by 90% compared to 2010 levels.

Ultimately, the Japanese automaker is going to contribute to the creation of a “carbon-free society.” Now that the company has signed an agreement with Toyota, all Subaru resources previously allocated for the development of electric vehicles have been redirected to a new joint project of a compact electric crossover to accelerate the process.
