While getting our 13XV serviced today I took a walk around the sales lot.
There is a beautiful blue XV Hybrid Plug-in model sitting front and center. Looking at the new Crosstrek intrigued me, until I noticed a sticker to the right of the actual MSRP window sticker.
There is a +$5,000 market adjustment on a Subaru MSRPd at $39,420, bringing the potential total to $44,420 for a Hybrid Crosstrek.
Now, with a Federal tax credit of $4,500, and a potential CA clean vehicle rebate of $1,500 (up to $3,500 for income eligible buyers in CA), you would receive $6k (up to $8k) in end of year credits.
We love our 2013 XV Premium and we paid $23k for Sigourney with multiple OEM port installed accessories.
I understand times change, but good Lord, Subaru is in trouble with Crosstrek Hybrid sales, again, if dealers are eliminating the Plug-in incentives through market adjustment fees.
There are several reasons why we would not purchase an XV plug-in at this time, with current adjustments deterring us from a second thought consideration.
Subaru of America, please encourage your dealers to actually push the environmental friendly efforts of the Subaru branding. We love what you do for our communities, please re-examine the focus for your Hybrid point of sales.
Just my two-cents. What have you found at your local dealers for the Crosstrek Hybrid sales?
