The next addition of the Subaru Viziv has been unleashed at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show showcasing the Subaru Viziv 2 concept, which seems to have maintained the familiar shape of its predecessor apart from the front end. This part looks more like the 2015 Legacy concept that was revealed at the LA Auto Show in November.
Subaru has coined the word Viziv as short for “vision for innovation,” as the company intends to introduce new technologies and styling themes. Details and images of the Subaru Viziv 2 concept can be seen on the Motor Authority website as they highlight the new prominent LED fog lamps seen on the back and front bumpers, although they also feel these features could left out when it comes to toning down the concept’s styling.
The Viziv 2 continues with an all-wheel-drive system, however, it also uses a plug-in hybrid powertrain that involves a 1.6-liter boxer diesel with CVT, as well as a lithium-ion battery pack and three electric motors. Both the diesel and a single electric motor combine to power the front wheels and the other two motors take care of the rear wheels, which Subaru says “allows for torque vectoring-aided control.”
