Confirmed: Subaru to launch first-ever hybrid vehicle in 2013

So in 2013 they will offer a model to compete with toyota circa 2003.

Either that or a through the road hybrid system would fit the bill for awd performance and handling. They have the opportunity to bring the first mass produced awd EV to market and dramatically simplify & improve the reliability of their drive-train systems. But instead they will use hybrid tech that was not designed for awd and make it more complicated.
