Subaru’s first all-electric production vehicle will be available next year. The upcoming 2022 Subaru Solterra will be a mid-size SUV. It is closely related to the Toyota bZ4X Concept, which was seen in Shanghai last month, and will be released in Europe, China, Japan, Canada, and the United States. The sales will begin in mid-2022, according to the most reliable reports.
You probably didn’t know, but Solterra was previously known as the Evoltis model. The Solterra will deploy an all-new EV-specific architecture known as the e-Subaru Global Platform (e-TNGA). On top of that, Subaru’s famous AWD system and Toyota’s electrification technologies will be on offer, which makes an amazing combination. Here’s everything you need to know about the new Solterra electric SUV.
2022 Solterra Design
Japan manufacturer has done its utmost to keep the architecture of the 2022 Subaru Solterra a secret. However, its boxy profile can be seen peeking through the darkness of the teaser image above. Sharp LED headlights are also present, as is a suggestion of a wide front grille. The rear badge clearly indicates anything other than the EV. The taillights are looking incredibly modern in our opinion.
Subaru’s two teaser images show the upcoming battery-electric vehicle’s lightweight dimensions. It will have slimmer LED headlamps, big side creases in the front bumper, a muscular-looking hood, and a subtly arched roofline at the back. The underbody protection suggests a lot of ground clearance, which is great for off-road fans.
There are no details regarding the all-new 2022 Subaru Solterra and its interior design. The interior of the Solterra has not yet been revealed, but it is expected to be very similar to that of the Toyota bZ4X. The Toyota employs a steering yoke in place of a traditional wheel, similar to the current Tesla Model S. However, it is unclear if this will be produced. If it does, it will appear on the Subaru as well. Anyway, more details will become available in the coming months.
Standard AWD System
Subaru is keeping powertrain information tight to its chest for the time being. Indeed, we don’t know much about the 2022 Subaru Solterra and its all-electric output. Nonetheless, it could come with dual-motor setups and an all-wheel drive. The entry-level models would most likely have a single motor and two-wheel drive.
There’s no news about what kind of batteries are hidden under the Solterra either. But it’s likely to be the same as the forthcoming Toyota bZ4X, which was recently previewed in prototype form. It’s a matter of whether Toyota or Subaru will have a greater impact on the new Solterra. One thing is certain, and it is Subaru’s famous all-wheel-drive system that should be standard.
2022 Subaru Solterra Launch Date, Price
The upcoming 2022 Subaru Solterra will go on sale in the United States, at some point next year. It will most likely be the most luxurious vehicle from the Japanese carmaker. As a result, it would most likely cost more than $50,000. As we said in the beginning, Solterra will also go on sale in Japan, China, Europe, and Canada.
