Exciting News! - Posted on 11 May 2021

Tokyo, May 11, 2021 – The Subaru Corporation today announced that Subaru's all-new global battery electric SUV will be named Solterra and it is scheduled to go on sale in 2022.

The Solterra is Subaru’s all-new, all-electric C-segment-class SUV and it will be the first Subaru vehicle to be built on the battery electric vehicle (BEV) dedicated e-Subaru Global Platform.

The e-Subaru Global platform, which has been jointly-developed by Subaru and Toyota, enables the roll out various types of EVs by efficiently combining multiple modules and components, such as the front, center, and rear of a vehicle. While the two companies have brought together their knowledge to create a completely new platform, Subaru, as always, aims to realize superior passive safety and vehicle stability in this BEV dedicated platform.

The vehicle platform that the Solterra is based upon has been jointly-developed by Subaru and Toyota, and the wide range of collaboration has included product planning, design, and performance evaluation. From this shared development, the two companies have combined their respective strengths, such as Subaru’s long-accumulated all-wheel-drive technology and Toyota’s outstanding vehicle electrification technology, to create a new SUV with attributes that only an all-electric vehicle can offer.

The name Solterra was created by joining the word “Sol” and “Terra”, the Latin words for the “Sun” and the “Earth” respectively. Subaru gave this name to the EV to appreciate mother nature and further advance the form of coexistence with it, together with our customers, and to represent our commitment to deliver traditional Subaru SUV’s go-anywhere capabilities in an all-electric vehicle.

The Solterra will be joining the line of Subaru SUVs that includes the Ascent, Outback, Forester and Crosstrek and will go on sale by the middle of 2022 in markets including Japan, the United States, Canada, Europe and China.

The Future is Electric! - Posted on 18 March 2021

In December 2020, Subaru announced an upcoming electric SUV, similar in size to the Subaru Forester, that’s based on Toyota’s spacious e-TNGA platform (electric Toyota New Global Architecture) which has been co-developed with Subaru. Its flexibility enables front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, and most importantly for Subaru, all-wheel-drive configurations. Tentatively named the Subaru Evoltis, this evolutionary SUV is slated for European release some time in the next 2 years, with roll out to happen first in Asian and European markets with North America to follow suit.

While production cars usually look tamer than concept vehicles, early renderings of the Evoltis display a very eye-catching design, which should make the battery-electric model stand out from the rest of the product range and show its special features. And while Subaru and Toyota are collaborating on this all-electric SUV, Subaru has said that even with shared Toyota technology, it will be "distinctly Subaru." No exact details have been given yet, but this does mean an SUV that incorporates Subaru's core values of safety, being fun-to-drive, all-weather capable, off-pavement ready, and a low center-of-gravity. It will feature Toyota's battery technology, and recent reports from Car and Driver say it could use a solid-state battery pack and potentially be an EV game-changer. Solid-state batteries charge quicker and offer more range than the same size pack as traditional lithium-ion batteries.
