G4e is Subaruâ€™s way of telling the world that if anyone can go â€œgreenâ€, it is Subaru. First shown in Tokyo last year, the G4e Concept can now be spotted in Europe as it arrives at the Geneva Motor Show.
Subaru is not just about fast turbo boxer engines; the brand is also headed for the green revolution with this Concept G4e which is a small eco-car. Subaru says it is equipped with zero-emission high technology, the latter two words which we probably never thought we’d read from any Subaru material. Nevertheless, the saying goes that it’s never too late.
G4e Concept debuted in Tokyo in 2007 and set out to turn electric cars into cool accessories for the younger set, also known as Generation i. At the same time space has not been compromised as the G4e Concept can still accommodate five. Subaru was clever this way as they designed it to store the lithium-ion batteries under the floor. A range of 200km is estimated between battery charges, and these take up to 8 hours through the average home electricity system.
