This is the Subaru Solterra – a new mid-sized electric SUV that comes brimming with Subaru’s usual no-nonsense promises. But you might have seen it before somewhere else.Your mind isn’t playing tricks on you. Yes, the Subaru Solterra lives a bit of a double life. You see, it exists by way of an agreement between Toyota and Subaru to collaborate when it comes to electric cars. And as such, the Solterra has a very, very close relation indeed.
It’s the result of what people in the industry like to call ‘badge engineering.’ It’s effectively a Toyota bZ4X dressed up with some Subaru trappings, though the visual similarities between the two are still quite startling. As such, it’s not only a direct rival for its Toyota relation, but also something to consider as an alternative to the Kia EV6, Hyundai Ioniq 5, Nissan Ariya or the Tesla Model Y. And right now, it’s the only electric Subaru you can buy and will remain so for the foreseeable future, at least until the next development of the brand’s relationship with Toyota.
Is the Solterra worth considering? Join Tom as he puts the new Subaru through its paces. Would you put it on your shortlist? As always, we love to read your opinions, so please add your comments below.
