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. The plug-in Subaru is expected to retain its longitudinally mounted boxer engine—while likely adding an 8.8-kilowatt-hour battery pack that provides about 20 to 25 miles of all-electric range.

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.

Nissan’s luxury Infiniti brand will introduce only fully or partially electric vehicles starting 2021, except for its large SUVs. 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.
