New information about the upcoming 2023 Subaru Solterra just came up, and the all-electric SUV will arrive next year. If you didn’t know, Subaru announced this model in May, and right now, we finally got the first images. The upcoming SUV looks attractive thanks to its coupe-like profile and sharp lines.
From the information we got, this model will compete against similar-sized electric SUVs, including the new Ford Mustang Mach-E and Volkswagen ID.4. We still don’t know much about the forthcoming Solterra, but thanks to few images, we can see some hints of what’s coming.
2023 Subaru Soliterra Design
At first glance, the new 2023 Subaru Solterra reminds us of the up[coming Toyota bz4x model. Reportedly, both models will share plenty of elements and the same platform. Subaru teamed up with Toyota to co-develop the platform for the upcoming Solterra, and we also expect the same platform to underpin other future models.
The Solterra looks attractive, and it will be visually and mechanically similar to the forthcoming Toyota bZ4X. However, it will definitively have some Subaru/Toyota styling motif to lure more fans. Overall, expect it to be fully revealed in the coming weeks.
At this point, Subaru hasn’t released much information about the Solterra’s interior. However, they released one image that shows what we can expect. First of all, the cabin looks techier than we thought with a stylish dashboard and free-standing digital gauge display.
Also, an extensive infotainment system is present, and a high center console with what looks like a rotary shift knob. Proportionally, we think that the Subaru Soliterra will be a two-row SUV with enough roomy cabin to place five passengers. Besides, Subaru will also make this SUV very safe, adding plenty of driver-assist features.
2023 Subaru Solterra Motor Specs and Battery Capacity
The new 2023 Subaru Solterra is the SUV powered exclusively by electricity, and as far as we know, it will include all-wheel drive as standard. Subaru recently started its partnership with Toyota, and the plan is to make a very efficient vehicle with excellent mileage.
According to some gossips, the forthcoming Subaru Solterra will use the same battery capacity as the Tesla Model X. That means we presume at least 300 miles on a single charge. As you probably didn’t know, Subaru is best known for its standard all-wheel-drive systems, but Toyota has had a great experience with electrification since its first debut of the Prius. Unfortunately, we don’t know much about its performance but expect more news in coming months.
Release Date and Price
Subaru recently stated that is working on the all-new electric SUV called Solterra. Yesterday, we got some new images of the upcoming model, and we must admit that it looks beautiful. As we wrote, this model shares many design cues with the latest Toyota bz4x model.
Of course, this is only our opinion at first glance. Subaru hasn’t announced pricing for the Solterra, but we expect it to be in the same range as the upcoming Toyota bZ4X, which we think will start at $35,000.
