The All-New SUBARU SOLTERRA - its first pure-electric model, will hit showrooms in 2022 | Cars Blog





Subaru's future is about to be revealed soon at the Los Angeles Auto Show on November 17 at 10:45 a.m. PT. The all-new Subaru Solterra brings everything you love about Subaru - Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, active safety technology, and reliable, durable engineering - into a fully-powered vehicle. by electricity. Solterra is packed with next-generation technology, but to find out all the details, you'll have to be there for the launch. Sign up now and be among the first to see our first zero-emissions EV SUV at its US launch.


Subaru has confirmed that all-wheel drive will be standard equipment for the Solterra. It also claims "spacious rear seats and cargo room", which you can also see clearly in the video above. Finally, Subaru said to expect it to come with "advanced safety technology," but did not specify further what that technology includes.



The view from the front gives us our first look at the car's LED headlights. They are sharp and angular, matching the shape of the metal sheet forming around them. The hood line also seems to turn upwards right after the headlights come to an end. We can immediately see the smallest glimpse of the grille. The Subaru logo is visible through the forest, and the flat black panels seem to be the backlash that the logo sits on. However, the finer details here still cannot be fully explained.



Subaru's final exterior teaser shows the entire side profile, including production wheels. Here's where the Solterra will look a lot like its Toyota twin (which is being co-developed with Toyota), the bZ4X. The two are just exact copies of each other when viewed from the side, as they share every line of the body and extend down to the lights at the front and rear. Even the body panels / Toyota trim shapes are the same. Another Subaru difference that we can see here is in the wheel design. The wheels on the Solterra seem stiffer than the stylish rims on the bZ4X. However, if you've seen bZ4X, you can basically say you've seen Solterra by now.


Perhaps the most interesting teaser of them all is the only interior shot that Subaru has dropped in today. It depicts a dark interior to accentuate the screen and interior design basics, and it certainly looks classy compared to Subaru's current interior design language. Even with the recent change to the new Outback and Legacy, this is a cut above. A huge widescreen display dominates the center stack, while tactile controls cascade down a waterfall below it. This results in a rotating gearshift knob surrounded by more touch controls. There's also a weird string of lights right behind the gearshift lever that we're not entirely sure about yet. The last bit of light we can see is from the digital instrument cluster that's been pushed quite far towards the windshield - just look at how long that steering column appears.


Both the door panel and the dashboard look like they're adorned with some unspecified trim material (green/recycled perhaps?) that we're eager to explore. It's certainly unlike any Subaru interior we've seen, and again, that's down to how much Toyota is in it. If you look at the photos of the bZ4X's interior, the Solterra's overall design and materials reflect what Toyota is using. That's not a bad thing, but it's remarkable how similar these two cars will end up being.
