M2 Motorcycle

The M2 electric racing motorcycle by designer Pedro Marcondes is one slick looking street bike. I’m loving the athletic stance and round spokes, but what really sets it apart is its race-ready construction. 6 sub-divided cells make it easy to remove, repair, or replace integral components during those time-critical pit stops.

Subaru Hybrid

Finally, Subaru has made the official announcement of launching hybrid vehicles by 2013 as a step towards energy conservation and raising environment alconsciousness. Regular use of zero emission electric vehicles is a better option to save fast depleting fossil fuels that leave lesser carbon footprints in the environment. Buzz is that Subaru may not adopt the hybrid concept of Toyota and that their product may be laced with advanced features and a unique appearance. It is yet to be confirmed whether this hybrid car will run on US roads or not. But, with another automaker joining the band of producing “Green autos”, the vehicles bound to rule the road in the future.

 

Subaru had intended to launch a hybrid vehicle six years ago, but finally we may see an advanced version on the roads in the next couple of years. Although, the features and design of this hybrid vehicle are still under speculation, the company will more likely to follow the Hybrid Tourer Concept, which was unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2009. Some sources say that Subaru may incorporate features of Impreza and Legacy. Both these models follow the hybrid technology of Toyota.

 

In fact, there have been lots of speculations since past few months regarding the inclusion of Toyota’s hybrid technology in Subaru hybrid coupe. But sources say, there are fair chances that the new hybrid model will pick features of the Hybrid Tourer concept. This Hybrid Tourer Concept uses directly injected 2.0 liter turbo boxer engine and a CVT. The auto features two electric motors each located on the front and rear axle. Subaru may also incorporate lithium ion capacitor technology in this hybrid auto. Battery capacity is the most vital factor for any hybrid vehicle and Subaru is constantly working with a leading battery producer for high efficiency lithium-ion batteries.

 

 

There is a buzz that Subaru may launch four new models in 2013 including the much talked about hybrid model. As the speculation is on, auto lovers will be in high spirits to get three new Subaru models plus a hybrid vehicle. The world’s auto biggies are planning to grab the market share with their ambitious projects in the upcoming years. And, considering the soaring fuel prices and environmental factors, Subaru is putting all its efforts in boosting its sales with its Motion-V plan along with joining the band of producing “green auto”. Perhaps, Subaru will emphasize more on the dream run of its sole hybrid auto than the other three models. The five year Motion-V plan that will extend till the fiscal year 2016 will stress on better performance and appreciable fuel economy including better safety features.
