When they visit Subaru car dealers, Perth drivers looking for diesel models may be surprised to find that they are not there. It may be surprising if you have been out of the auto market for some time, but it is part of the general trend in the entire auto industry. Let’s have a more detailed understanding of the relevant issues and how to further develop the future situation.
Subaru changes direction on diesel engine
although it may be surprising, Subaru has been away from diesel vehicles for nearly 10 years. Every year we see that the emissions of diesel engines are decreasing, which is part of a broader trend. Subaru pays more attention to the future. The increase of emission demand in the future will have a significant impact on the competitiveness of diesel engines. As we move into the future, Subaru(and all other car manufacturers) seems to be turning to hybrid vehicles.
The Subaru Forrester 2.0L diesel engine is the first accident replaced by the new power trailer. At the beginning of this year, when Australia released a new generation of Forester in the third quarter, the production of this car stopped. However, this is just the beginning, and the love of other car fans will soon follow. The 2.0L gasoline engine and 2.5L turbocharged low gasoline engine Forest will also stop running in a short time. In fact, there is only one 2.5-liter turbocharged engine left in the four Forsts models in 2019.
For those who lament the loss of diesel and some gasoline power plants, this is not the real end of change. We are also seeing more and more Forester manual transmissions out of service. In fact, the whole new generation Forest series is only equipped with endless transmission(CVT).
Is it a permanent change?
Subaru does not rule out the possibility of any engine type returning when Forrester is released in Australia or other places in the future. We can see the return of the popular EE20 diesel “”. boxer ; subaru series engines in other places. This engine can be used for a pair of Outback models with output power of 110kW and torque of 350mm. However, before seeing hybrid vehicles being used more widely, the return or use of these diesel engines should be regarded as the last cheer. Subaru has become their diesel engine All operations have stopped, and we will not see any improvement in the future.
The hybrid electric system developed during the cooperation between Forrester and Toyota will have a bright future. We can look forward to the future plug-in hybrid mode, which will be a good indicator of the company’s health in the process of our progress.
