Subaru Solterra: Off-road in Comfort and Silence


Subaru is among the last automakers to join electric vehicle revolution. Subaru is making certain that the brand’s initial product is a genuine Subaru. It will only be offered with all-wheel drive. It doesn’t have a front-wheel-drive Solterra, like the bZ4x from Toyota. The new Subaru electric will have two motors. One on each axle, one with 205 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque. Although it may not appear like much power, this is a significant increase over the Forester of the same size (EPA).

The EV crossover was designed with a go anywhere attitude in mind. It has 8.3 inches of ground clearance and extensive body cladding around its wheels. This is comparable to the company’s other crossovers, and is more than any of its EV competitors. If the roads become icy, the Solterra will come standard with X-Mode. This allows for slow-speed traction. The inside features include Subaru’s Eyesight safety technology and an automatic headlight turning off function. A host of new tech was introduced on the 2019 Toyota C-HR Hybrid. These include a 3-inch touchscreen at the center, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, aswell as a 360-degree cam. This is only available to vehicles equipped with AWD. AWD Solterra is expected have a range up to 220 miles (350km) per charge. It’s comparable to the FWD Toyota BZ4x, which should suffice for most everyday activities. The Solterra is expected to be on sale in showrooms around mid-year.
