In a nutshell, the 2023 Subaru Solterra™ is the brand’s first all-electric vehicle and a step toward building a new all-electric lineup. Diving deeper, the name is a combination of the Latin words “sol” (meaning sun) and “terra” (meaning earth). As well, under the sleek skin will be a new all-electric vehicle architecture known as the e-Subaru Global Platform to pave the way forward for future all-electric Subaru models. Overall, you can expect the 2023 Subaru Solterra™ to be a spacious and comfortable SUV with a focus on advanced tech and quiet electric power.
Sticking with the trend of outdoors-focused auto brands, Subaru is another to join the electric vehicle market in 2022 with its upcoming Solterra SUV. Subaru has been teasing the public with its first EV since last May, offering glimpses and tidbits throughout 2021.
However, it wasn’t until this past November when we truly learned all the specs the Solterra will arrive with, including its 250-mile range. That’s based on its 71.4 kWh battery, which Subaru claims can deliver 285 miles (460 km) based on Japan’s WLTC standard. That should translate to roughly 250 miles of range based on the EPA standard.
Although pricing has yet to be released, the Solterra is expected to begin exploring nature in mid-2022.
