Subaru saw that fans worldwide have been missing the STI badge ever so dearly and decided to put it up with WRX and turn it into a high-performance EV to make the 2028 Subaru WRX STI EV a reality.
While the world is still reeling out after they witnessed the reveal of this new WRX STI model, we haven’t got the time to react yet.
This is something you would wait for no matter how long it takes and it looks like the wait will be long given the model year it has been announced to launch in.
Nothing can stop people from getting incredibly excited over the 2028 Subaru WRX STI EV because it is the best of lots of worlds and we frankly are wishing someone would just transport us to the future.
When will we get the 2028 Subaru WRX STI EV?
According to Subaru HQ, the 2028 Subaru WRX STI EV is not getting a launch date until the WRX gas-powered models are done running their course.
Yes, given that many car makers are going for the all-electric lineup by the end of 2030, this might be Subaru’s way of making it happen in a way as this high-performance variant has been fondly missed.
Even though we do not have a particular month of launch, we can speculate that the 2028 Subaru WRX STI EV may get a launch date in 2027.
The wait is long, and to be honest, it is worth the wait when it comes to the high-performance STI tag.
How does the new 2028 Subaru WRX STI EV look?
We do not have an official teaser or a blueprint or even a slight indication of the 2028 Subaru WRX STI EV as to how it will look while it hit the roads.
But, car experts are a little convinced that the 2028 Subaru WRX STI EV will drop its Subaru Impreza inspired skin and they are highly hopeful that the hatchback body figure makes a comeback.
What to expect in the 2028 Subaru WRX STI EV?
We are still left to find our own clues when it comes to the 2028 Subaru WRX STI EV because the HQ is stern on making the EV possible only when the non-hybrid models run out of production.
Given that the STI badge brings in the power, we would definitely be honoured if the 2028 Subaru WRX STI EV delivers a minimum of 400 horsepower.
Well, if the EV is said to take over, that should be a box they do not want to leave unchecked.
Is the 2028 Subaru WRX STI EV worth the wait?
It should be, as many suggest that things won’t be that simple for the new 2028 Subaru WRX STI EV with people expecting Subaru to try something new to give it an edge in the market, integrating the torque vectoring function into the software maybe just one of them.
Like all Subarus, we can expect the 2028 Subaru WRX STI EV to be an all-wheel drive system too and that implies we would be getting a dual motor setup and that should make the 400 horsepower dream a reality for Subaru.
What powertrain will the 2028 Subaru WRX STI EV get?
Well, we know that the 2028 Subaru WRX STI EV will get an electric powertrain but we are not sure if it will be an all-electric or just a hybrid.
Given that Subaru has decided to wait out for the WRX gas models to walk out in style, we would expect to get an all-electric model because if it was just a hybrid couldn’t they have dropped it already?
Please, let us live in our own fantasy world, we refuse to come out of it.
What is the cost of the 2028 Subaru WRX STI EV?
Well, we are not sure about anything when it comes to the 2028 Subaru WRX STI EV but you can expect the starting price offered to be in the $50k range.
