Subaru has reportedly registered ‘Evoltis’ as potential name for new plug-in hybrid
According to a recent report by Car and Driver magazine, Subaru’s new plug-in hybrid car will likely be called ‘Evoltis.’ The plug-in hybrid is expected to hit the markets in 2019.
The report is based on a trademark filing by Subaru. The filing has revealed that the name ‘Evoltis’ has been potentially registered by the automaker for its new plug-in hybrid vehicle.
However, there has thus far been no official comment from Subaru spokespersons either on the trademark filing or the potential ‘Evoltis’ name for the company’s forthcoming plug-in product.
The Subaru Evoltis plug-in will probably use technology from Toyota’s Prius Prime car. It is also possible that the vehicle may be a plug-in version of the automaker’s new Crosstrek Hybrid. If that is the case, the Evoltis may not have a long battery range because of its possibly less-aerodynamic shape and high-ride height like the Crosstrek.
Subaru will have to bring the Evoltis plug-in to the US market soon, especially in the wake of California’s requirement for all automakers to sell zero-emissions vehicles in the state. Subaru has not developed a plug-in in the US till now, though it has amassed credits, since years, for developing ‘partial zero-emissions vehicles’, that is, gas cars with particularly clean fueling systems.
