Subaru B9 SC Scrambler Hybrid

The Subaru B9 SC Scrambler Hybrid is a concept car announced at the 2003 Tokyo Motor Show. The Subaru two-seat B9 SC roadster hybrid teams up a high-torque electric motor with a 2.0-liter DOHC Subaru boxer flat 4-cylinder gasoline engine.

At low to middle speeds, the B9 Scrambler Hybrid uses the gasoline engine to charge its bank of high-density manganese lithium-ion (NLE) batteries, while at higher speeds (above 50 mph) it operates exclusively with its gasoline engine.

The NLE batteries (developed in a joint venture with NEC corporation) offer greater flexibility than other manufacturer's hybrid batteries in that with Subaru, battery cells can be added and subtracted to accommodate different body designs. This will also be useful if Subaru plans to sell the battery pack to other hybrid manufacturers as well.

The Subaru Scrambler Hybrid uses a special 2-way clutch in its Sequential Series Hybrid Electric Vehicle (SSHEV) system to seamless switch between gasoline engine and electric motor. The all-wheel drive B9 SC Hybrid also rides on air, adjustable air suspension, that is as it makes allowances to ground clearance as needed. With the addition of the Scrambler's large wheels with run-flat tires, it makes this hybrid car a vehicles for many rough road conditions as well as highway driving.

The Subaru B9 SC Scrambler Hybrid also offers a dent, scratch, and ding resistant body including a special protective paint that also wraps over the upper body and behind the doors to provide unity to the design. The Scrambler is scrambling to protect itself from rocks and other road debris with this new protective coating.

According to the latest reports, the roll out of the Subaru B9 SC Scrambler Hybrid is being delayed indefinitely. According to Fuji Heavy, owner of Subaru, the car company has not figured out yet how to reduce production costs to the point of being commercially viable. In order to make it to market more quickly, Subaru has formed an alliance that is to be mutually beneficial.

Toyota will supply Subaru with the hybrid power system for its new cars and vehicles. Subaru, in turn, will supply Toyota with the manganese lithium-ion batteries that Toyota will begin to use in production vehicles. Because Subaru only brings 590,000 or so vehicles to market, it makes sense that they delay, abandon or just stretch out the development costs over a longer period-of-time. In the short-term, however, Subaru can bring a hybrid car to market more quickly as the market for this commodity is already heating up and will get even hotter over the next 5-10 years.

Subaru has also just announced plans to sell an all-electric minicar in Japan by 2009. The Subaru R1e electric vehicle is being powered by the same lithium-ion battery pack as the Scrambler Hybrid is and is designed to run 200 kilometers (124 miles) on a single charge. The R1e electric minicar can be charged by plugging it into the same kind of AC outlet that home air conditioners use.

The Subaru B9 SC Scrambler Hybrid, though a ways off, is still something to keep on eye on for the future. With its sleek, sporty design and technical innovations, this one car could help Subaru's sagging sales breath a new life for years to come.
