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.
Key Subaru Solterra highlights
The Subaru Solterra shares a lot of its components with the Toyota bZ4X – but that’s no bad thing at all.
It means you get a spacious, comfortable interior alongside a 452-litre boot that will easily hold your holiday luggage, weekly shopping or adventure equipment.
Because that’s the thing about the Solterra, it’s extremely versatile, only made more so by the all-wheel drive technology that means if you go off the beaten the track and find yourself in snow, mud or ice, the Solterra will keep you safe. It’s a big selling point compared to some SUVs that are only happy on the straight and narrow.
Subaru Solterra performance and range
The Solterra has a maximum range of 289 miles thanks to a 71kWh battery (this range will reduce slightly if you opt for the dual motor, all-wheel drive system). Either way, it should be more than enough for all your adventures, especially if you use the large infotainment systems to plan your charging along the way. For when you do need to stop, the Solterra is capable of maximum charging speeds of 150kW.
