Will the 2017 STi be a Hybrid?

Dec 08, 2015 - 12:10 PM - by NickJ

Subaru might electrify the next-gen WRX STI. According to a rumor from Motoring in Australia citing an unnamed Subie insider, the brand's engineers reportedly have two hybrid systems under development for the future model. The move would allow the STI to boost power output and improve fuel economy and lower emissions to keep up with US regulations.

According to Motoring's speculation, the next STI might use an electric motor at the back to power the rear axle and an upgraded version of the FA20 turbocharged 2.0-liter at the front. A new dual-clutch six-speed gearbox would help the power get to the road, and the total system could allegedly offer around 322 horsepower versus 305 hp from the current US model.

This rumor also claims the next-gen STI would continue as a sedan when it arrives in 2017. Like previous iterations, the four-door will share underpinnings with the Impreza, which will mean a move to Subaru's new modular platform. The standard hybrid might only be the beginning of electrification for the future STI. Motoring's source also claims the company has a plug-in hybrid variant under development, but it might not debut until the 2018 Tokyo Motor Show.

A hybrid STI could be exciting, but until there are solid facts, this rumor joins a long history of powertrain speculation about the high-performance Subaru. In 2008 and 2010, reports emerged about a diesel version, but it never appeared. We once even heard that the current-gen WRX might boast an electric turbo.

Subaru’s 2015 WRX STI Global Rallycross car will launch from 0-60 in a lightning quick 2 seconds. What part is STI playing in the new cars development? Denis Flierl reports for

Because Subaru Tecnica International (STI) has “stepped up” their technical support of SRT USA, the new 2015 Subaru WRX STI dubbed the VT15x is capable of 0-60 in just two seconds. That’s lightning quick and will help Bucky Lasek and Sverre Isachsen launch their new 2015 STI Global Rallycross car off the line quicker than ever at the 12 GRC race events in 2015.

STI’s motorsports involvement

STI, the performance division for Subaru, has stepped up their technical support of rallycross development with Vermont SportsCar who builds the cars for SRT USA. STI is currently involved with motorsports in Japan with the Subaru BRZ GT300 in the SUPER GT series and they also run the 2015 Subaru WRX STI at the Nurburgring 24-hr race. Now they are bringing their technical knowledge to Subaru’s U.S. GRC race program.

With the new 2015 WRX STI GRC car being unveiled at the New York International Auto Show this week, SRT USA is hoping STI’s involvement will make a big difference in their third season of Global Rallycross. “STI is increasing their support of our U.S. based efforts in rallycross. Their expertise and development resources will take our program to an even more competitive level,” stated Rob Weir, Subaru Motorsports Marketing Manager.
