NEXT STAGE: New in 2022
The Subaru Solterra, the automaker's first global electric vehicle, is the badge-sharing stablemate of the Toyota bZ4X — and is the spitting image of its sibling, from the oversize wheel cladding and beveled back fender to the funky wraparound taillight motif. The Solterra goes on sale in mid-2022 in the U.S., Canada, Japan, Europe and China.
Like the bZ4X, the Solterra will come in two layouts: front-wheel drive and awd. In Japan, at least, both variants get a 71.4-kilowatt-hour lithium ion battery.
The fwd version gets a single 150-kilowatt motor on the front axle and has a range of 329 miles. The awd version has an 80-kilowatt motor on each of the front and back axles and delivers a range of 285 miles.
The Solterra features the brand's trademark X-Mode awd control system. Subaru also added a Grip Control function to improve stability on rough roads. The powertrain further adopts a new system that drives the front and rear wheels with separate motors, the carmaker said.
