The all-electric 2023 Subaru Solterra will come next year, according to the latest reports. If you haven’t heard, Subaru unveiled this nice-looking model four months ago, and we’ve now gotten our hands on the first pictures. The forthcoming SUV has a coupe-like shape and crisp lines that make it appealing.
According to the information we have, Solterra will fight against other electric SUVs of comparable size, such as the new VW ID.4 and Ford Mustang Mach-E. We still don’t know much about the brand-new Solterra, but we can get a glimpse of what’s in store due to a few photos.
2023 Solterra Exterior Design
At first sight, the all-new 2023 Subaru Solterra looks a lot like the upcoming Toyota bZ4X. According to multiple reports, both models will share many aspects as well as the same platform. Subaru and Toyota collaborated on the architecture for the Solterra model, and we expect the same platform to support future brand’s vehicles as well.
The Solterra is beautiful, and it will be aesthetically and technically comparable to the Toyota bZ4X, which will be released later this year. It will, however, feature a unique style theme to attract additional enthusiasts. Overall, anticipate it to be unveiled in full over the next few weeks.
Subaru hasn’t shown anything about the interior of the Solterra as of yet. They did, however, offer one image that hints to what we may expect. First and foremost, the cabin appears to be more more modern than we anticipated, with a beautiful dashboard and a free-standing digital gauge display.
There’s also a large entertainment system and a high center console with what seems to be a rotary shift knob. In terms of proportion, we believe the Subaru Solterra will be a two-row SUV with ample cabin space for five persons. Subaru will also make this SUV extremely safe by including many driver-assist aids.
The upcoming 2023 Subaru Solterra will be the first brand’s all-electric SUV. Moreover, it will come standard with all-wheel drive system. The two of the Japanese automakers recently announced their collaboration, with the goal of creating an SUV with good mileage. The next Subaru Solterra, according to rumors, will have the same battery capacity as the Tesla Model X. That implies a single charge should get you at least 300 miles of all-electric driving range.
Subaru is best known for its conventional all-wheel-drive systems, while Toyota has had a lot of experience with electrification since the introduction of the Prius. We don’t know much about its performance at the moment, but expect more information in the following months. Anyway, Solterra looks like a model that could cause a huge splash in the coming years.
2023 Subaru Solterra Price and Release Date
From what we know, new 2023 Subaru Solterra will cost in the same range as the Toyota bZ4X model. This means the brand-new SUV will cost between $35,000 and $40,000. The sales will begin at some point next year, most likely in the second half of 2023.
