The 2024 Subaru Crosstrek 2.0i-L ES Hybrid is equipped with a e-Boxer hybrid powertrain that includes a 2.0-liter H-4 direct-injection engine paired with a motor-generator unit mated to a small battery pack that’s typically mounted over the rear axle. The hybrid powertrain is paired with an automatic continuously variable transmission (CVT). The motor-generator unit is powered by a small lithium-ion battery that is charged by regenerative braking and engine power. The battery pack is designed to provide additional power to the engine during acceleration and to power the vehicle’s accessories when the engine is off. The Crosstrek’s hybrid system is designed to provide improved fuel efficiency and reduced emissions, while still providing ample power and performance.
