2023 Subaru Solterra EV Redesign and Range – Subaru claims that the Solterra was created as part of a joint venture with Toyota. It will be constructed in Japan and China on Toyota’s new e-TNGA all-electric vehicle platform. Subaru’s version is known as the e-Subaru global platform.
Last April, Toyota said that the new EV would be called the bZ4X and incorporate Subaru’s extensive experience developing all-wheel-drive systems. The bZ4X will be part of Toyota’s bZ—”beyond zero,” which refers to zero emissions—brand umbrella, which comprises six additional BZ models set to debut by 2025.
Toyota and Subaru have a long history of collaboration. Subaru and Toyota have been working together since the first generation of the Subaru BRZ/Toyota 86. The Subaru Crosstrek Plug-in Hybrid, built with parts from the Toyota Prius Prime, is also being built with components from the Subaru BRZ.
2023 Subaru Solterra EV Exterior
The trapezoidal grille—shown here as a blank panel because a typical grille is superfluous on an EV—is said to be responsible for the Solterra’s body style. From the front, the Solterra looks a lot like Ford’s Mustang Mach-E, with its trapezoidal grille blank, thin headlight housings, oval-shaped blue brand badge, and its sharply sloping rear door.
2023 Subaru Solterra EV Interior
The center of the dash is highlighted by a big touch screen, which in the Solterra is a 12.3-inch horizontally oriented panel, similar to many current Subaru cars. It also appears to be using a version of the revised infotainment system that debuted on several new Toyota and Lexus cars. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay will come as standard, and a wireless smartphone charging port will be available as an optional. The turn signal, wiper stalks, and other dash buttons have been taken from Toyota’s existing parts bin, which isn’t always negative.
The inside space is a few cubic feet less than the modern Subaru Forester. Despite its steeply sloped back windshield, the Solterra has more cargo room than the Forester. This is most likely due to the Solterra’s large, flat cargo floor, which Subaru claims can be adjusted to two different heights. The 60/40 split rear seats may be folded down to increase cargo space. To make loading and to unload more accessible, the rear hatch is more than 41 inches wide. The Solterra’s passenger cabin floor is flat, too, thanks to the e-Subaru platform, which Subaru claims to improve legroom.
Subaru Solterra 2023 Release Date
The actual release date for the Subaru Solterra in 2023 is currently unknown. According to rumors, the 2023 Subaru Solterra is slated to arrive in showrooms between Winter Haven and Bartow in mid-2022.
Price of the Subaru Solterra in 2023
Details on the price of the 2023 Subaru Solterra are being kept under wraps once again. However, it is expected to be priced at roughly $37,000.
2023 Subaru Solterra Range
The e-Subaru Global Framework will be used to build the Subaru Solterra in 2023. This means it will have symmetrical front and back dual motors and all-wheel drive. Although range info has not been confirmed, it is expected to deliver at least 250 miles of range to remain competitive.
