Subaru Solterra Will Be The Brand’s First EV

The Subaru Solterra will be a product of the joint development efforts with Toyota


  • It will launch in mid-2022.

  • The Solterra will be an SUV.


By some margin, both Toyota and Subaru are lagging behind their main competitors when it comes to EVs. Last month, Toyota revealed the bZ4X electric crossover at the Shanghai Motor Show. The latter is the result of the Toyota-Subaru joint venture that will have made the all-new electric Solterra possible.

Subaru’s new electric SUV will be assembled on the new global e-Subaru EV platform. It, and Toyota’s e-Toyota EV architecture, will benefit from Subaru’s AWD expertise and Toyota’s experience in electrification. Both companies combined forces to address all development aspects including product planning, design, and performance evaluation. These platforms will enable both brands to roll out various types of EVs in the future so we can expect many new EVs in the future from Toyota and Subaru.

Subaru says about the Solterra: “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, a mix of Sol (Sun) and Terra (Earth), will go on sale in mid-2022 and be available in Canada, China, Europe, and Japan.
