Subaru's first hybrid will arrive later this year as a 2019 Crosstrek Hybrid — a plug-in hybrid that can run on gasoline or electric power, the automaker has announced.

The Crosstrek Hybrid will pair a four-cylinder direct-injection gasoline engine with Toyota's hybrid system. The vehicle will be equipped with a new transmission and the company's all-wheel drive system.

The vehicle will arrive by the end of this year, Subaru has announced. It will be build on the Subaru Global Platform that also underpins the Impreza.
