    Subaru goes electric

    SUBARU Corporation today announced that the brand, affectionately called ‘Scooby’ for their hyped rally style car Subaru’s all-new global battery electric SUV will be named “SOLTERRA” and it is scheduled to go on sale in 2022.

    Subaru goes electric with a new SUV

    “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.

    Teaming up with Toyota

    The e-Subaru Global platform, which has been jointly-developed by Subaru and Toyota, enables to roll out various types of EVs efficiently by 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 have aimed to realize superior passive safety and vehicle stability, which Subaru has always been pursuing, also in this BEV dedicated platform.

    Not only the platform, the SUV “SOLTERRA” has also been jointly-developed by Subaru and Toyota, and wide range of collaboration includes product planning, design and performance evaluation. In this development, the two companies combine 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.

    Going back to nature

    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.

    Launching 2022

    “SOLTERRA” will be joining the line of SUBARU SUVs, ASCENT, OUTBACK, FORESTER and SUBARU XV and go on sale by the middle of 2022 in the markets including Japan, the United States, Canada, Europe and China.

    When it lands, we’ll keep an eye as Im sure it’ll prove popular and we’ll get reviews and updates live when available.  Certainly the teaser images hint at a good looking car so lets hope the performance will match.  Teaming up with Toyota seems like a good plan and look forward to seeing this live.  

    If you’ve got a review or need help with an EV charger installation, new release or question, get in touch.
