Subaru New Zealand has announced that Subaru Japan will supply five examples of its Stella plug in concept car to the G8 Hokkaido Toyako Summit being held from July 7 to 9.

Four of the five electric cars will be used to transport government officials and other participants at the summit, while one vehicle will be displayed at the Environmental Showcase, an exhibition and demonstration area in the International Media Centre. It will be available for test drives.

In addition, Fuji Heavy Industries — Subaru’s parent company – will provide one STELLA Concept model to the Japan Post group for use in mail collection and delivery in the vicinity of Toyako during the summit.

The Subaru Plug-in STELLA Concept combines the Electric Vehicle system employed in the R1e with the mini car, Subaru STELLA. The resulting vehicle represents an optimized model that features the compact packaging and superb utility the STELLA offers to meet a wider array of market needs.

Subaru plans to use the Plug-in STELLA Concept in the development and test-marketing of the next generation of Electric Vehicles in Japan in the near future.

FHI has jointly developed the Subaru R1e with Tokyo Electric Power Co., Inc. (TEPCO), a leading utility in Japan, and the vehicle’s performance has been tested since June 2006. Forty units of the R1e model, equipped with lithium ion (Li-ion) batteries, have been used by TEPCO as part of its corporate fleet and by the Kanagawa Prefectural Government, providing performance results that further advance Subaru’s Electric Vehicle development work.

Data collected under real-world conditions have helped FHI to refine the concept of the next-generation Electric Vehicle and make further improvements in convenience and comfort under everyday driving situations.

The company has positioned Electric Vehicles as another viable solution for environmental preservation, and it plans to accelerate its Electric Vehicle development work.
