    Subaru will introduce an all-wheel-drive plug-in hybrid later this year, utilizing Toyota’s plug-in hybrid system found in the Prius Prime.

  • Mazda, an EV-Laggard, Moves Closer to Electrification
    While most automakers are developing multiple hybrids and EVs, Mazda has mostly remained on the sidelines when it comes to battery-powered vehicles. The company’s executives have insisted that its small, efficient gasoline engines provide all the necessary fuel-economy—and that future research and development should be aimed at wringing additional efficiency from internal combustion technology. However, in recent weeks, Masahiro Moro, chief executive of Mazda North America, hinted that the Japanese automaker will produce a plug-in hybrid or EV by about 2020.


  • Infiniti Promises Its First Electric Vehicle by 2021

That’s according to Nissan CEO Hiroto Saikawa, who spoke at the Automotive News World Congress last week. The automaker confirmed its first fully electric car will go on sale in 2021—more than a decade of the Nissan parent company introduced the Nissan LEAF EV.
