2019 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid First Test: Quietly Off Roading Into The Future

While I generally agree with your comment, for me the big issue with this vehicle is, of course, the battery range. As I’ve said before on this site about this car and others, a small battery range gives drivers very little incentive to plug in once they’re beyond the honeymoon phase and the novelty of having a plug has worn off.

I would love to see a study that tracks owners of various vehicles to find the percentage of miles actually traveled on electrons vs. gasoline as a function of the battery range, but only starting something like 2 or 3 months after the owner took delivery (or breaking up the results into 3-month chunks so we could see the evolution of their usage pattern). I would guess it would show a significant non-linearity for low to mid range battery ranges.

By all means, we need to get as many drivers as possible pumping electrons and not fossil fuels, but beyond the initial educational value, I find it hard to get excited about a car like this one in 2018.
