Somebody has to lead the way. Go Subaru!

Their boxer engine with it’s low center of gravity is their main advantage. Otherwise, why buy a Subaru?

Well, I might consider a Subaru that doesn't have a Boxer engine and a CVT, assuming electric chargers are widespread by then.

Both are reliability nightmares; the Boxer engine burns oil while the CVT breaks between 60K~100K miles and requires a $3K rebuild.

For now, I would only consider cars with regular automatic or DCT transmissions, which limits my options to Toyota, Hyundai, Kia, Mazda, and Genesis.

Much too little, way too late.

Electric vehicles, outside of Tesla, are simply not selling well in any world market. Even government fleet purchases can't hide this. Subaru will never go through with this pledge - it would be corporate suicide. I say this as a Subaru owner who would love to have an affordable, electric option.

Subaru Corp set a target on Monday for all the vehicles it sells worldwide to be electric by the first half of the 2030s, in a move toward its long-term goal of a carbon-free society.

Contradiction right there... electric vehicles does not mean carbon-free. Besides that, what does carbon-free even mean? We are carbon-based life forms... carbon free would mean we all have to die.

Reducing fossil fuel consumption is of course a good goal, but we do we need this corporate hype?
