New 2022 Subaru Solterra revealed in Japan – brand’s first EV

subaru has unveiled a new electric model, the Solterra 2022 crossover. The car is similar to the Toyota bZ4X , both built on the e-TNGA platform, which is a joint development of the two manufacturers. Japanese crossovers are almost mirror images of each other – the similarities are present both in the exterior and in the interior of the new products.

Among the differences between the new 2022 Subaru Solterra crossover is a hexagonal panel in the front bumper, designed to visually play the role of a radiator grill. The taillights are different from what we’ve seen on the Toyota crossover. The interior changes are minimal. They are limited to the color of the upholstery and the logo on the steering wheel.

The overall dimensions of electric vehicles are identical. Subaru Solterra length – 4690 mm, width – 1860 mm, height – 1650 mm.

The first electric crossover Subaru will be offered in two versions – with one and two electric motors. In the front-wheel-drive version, one motor producing 204 hp, in the all-wheel drive – two with a total output of 218 hp. Acceleration from 0-100 km / h Solterra takes 8.4 and 7.7 seconds, depending on the version.

The Subaru Solterra 2022 electric car is equipped with a lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 71.4 kWh. It is capable of providing 500 and 460 km of track, respectively. Thanks to the fast charging function with a capacity of up to 150 kW, the electric crossover can be charged from 0 to 80% in just 30 minutes.

Subaru promises to make the Solterra a global model and offer it in virtually all markets. The novelty will go on sale in the second half of 2022. The company has not yet announced its cost.
