Subaru will unveil this new electric coupe later in October at the Tokyo Mobility Show.

Subaru has teased an upcoming electric coupe concept that will be unveiled later in the month at the Tokyo Mobility Show.
This future model named the Subaru Sport Mobility Concept could be a successor to the BRZ, which is currently the only coupe in the automaker’s lineup and one of two overtly sporty models, along with the WRX sedan.
Very few details are available at the moment, except that this new coupe will be a full EV, possibly making it the second electric Subaru on the market.
From what can be seen in the teaser image, this coupe will feature slim horizontal LED headlamps, an illuminated brand logo, and squared-off wheel arches.
This last detail could give the upcoming coupe a family resemblance to the new WRX, which also features angular wheel arch cladding.
In addition, it is possible that the automaker’s designers wanted to capitalize on a recent retro trend (Hyundai Ioniq 5, Volkswagen ID.Buzz) by recalling details of its 80s models such as the funky XT Coupe.
What is evident is that the Subaru Sport Mobility Concept will not look anything like the current BRZ coupe, which it could replace.
Of course, there is no guarantee that this concept will ever make it to production, but this could be a good way for Subaru to regain the interest of enthusiasts, many of whom were disappointed by the abandonment of the WRX STI model.
In addition, bringing an electric sports car to production would help the automaker get a better footing in the EV market, which it needs to do in order to remain competitive.
Indeed, the Solterra compact SUV is the only electric model currently available from the Japanese automaker, which is planning to launch three additional electric vehicles by 2026.
More details will be available later this month once the Subaru Sport Mobility Concept has been fully unveiled.
