Subaru has long been a popular brand in the UK for those wanting reliable and capable vehicles, from thrilling sports cars to spacious estates and rugged SUVs. The Japanese manufacturer has been a little slower to move to all-electric models but that has all changed with the arrival of the Solterra.
Key Subaru highlights
Subaru rose to fame in the 90s with the Impreza, which dazzled in the World Rally Championship at the hands of rally stars such as Colin McRae. Using this as a platform, the brand has built a solid following with a range of durable and capable sports cars, SUVs and estates. From landowners to petrolheads, the Subaru fan club is diverse.
In the past few years it has focused on offering hybrid versions of its popular models, but is now moving to all-electric. Leasing a Subaru means you’ll be sure to get an enjoyable driving experience with a sporty edge, as well as useful technology at an affordable price.
Subaru & EVs
Subaru started with hybrid versions of existing models and has now moved to all-electric with its first model – the Subaru Solterra. The carmaker shares development with Toyota so the Solterra delivers the same sort of quality and reliability, as well as being a family-friendly SUV that prioritises safety. It’s a complete model from an EV newcomer, with the Subaru brand expected to go from strength to strength in the coming years.
Top Subaru models
The Solterra is Subaru’s first EV and is available to lease right now. Released in early 2023, the all-electric SUV is similar to the Toyota bZ4X, and offers almost 300 miles of range, 150kW charging speeds, 4x4 off-road capability and a heap of safety systems to protect you and the family. The 452-litre boot provides plenty of space for luggage too, making it great as a family car. The Subaru brand has announced many plans for future EV developments, with new models following the successful template of the Solterra.

The Subaru Solterra means ‘sun’ and ‘earth’ in Latin, as the Japanese carmaker goes green with its first all-electric car. It’s a practical family SUV that’s loaded with safety tech. What separates it from a packed market is the standard all-wheel drive system that gives it true off-road credentials.
