Next week we will have all the details on the US 2023 specs Subaru Solterra electric crossover, but today Subaru unveiled the JDM spec version. What we see here is more or less what we can expect to arrive in the United States.
The Solterra is Subaru’s first electric vehicle and is basically a slightly different version of the Toyota bZ4X. Compared to its Toyota sibling, the Solterra has a slightly different grille, different headlights and a unique lower bumper. At the rear the differences are minor with slightly different taillights than on the bZ4X.
Inside, the interior is also almost identical between the two electric vehicles, but we note that the Solterra has a normal steering wheel, which is different from the yoke of the bZ4X.
Under the skin, both electric vehicles are based on the same platform, which Subaru calls the e-Subaru Global platform. The electric vehicle can be equipped with one or two electric motors and a 71.4 kilowatt-hour battery. On the Japanese cycle the Solterra front-wheel drive has a range of 330 miles, while the AWD version has a range of 285 miles.
The Subaru Solterra 2023 goes on sale in mid-2022, but stay tuned for full details on the US specs on November 17th.
