The Subaru Evoltis EV Concept Should Be The Brand’s First Electric SUV

The Subaru Evoltis electric SUV is the result of the Toyota/Subaru EV platform joint venture


  • This vehicle comes from the joint Toyota-Subaru EV venture.

  • Evoltis name was trademarked in the US two years ago.

  • May offer up to 300 miles of range.


With a name like Evoltis, it seemed and seems obvious that the vehicle that will bare this name will be electrified in some way. Subaru filed to trademark the name back in 2018 and now we know that the moniker will be applied to an electric SUV that will fit between the Forester and Ascent size-wise.

The Evoltis is a result of Subaru and Toyota’s collaboration where Subie’s gains access to all of Toyota’s electrified knowledge. The Subaru Crosstrek PHEV was the first child of this joining, however, we’re huge fans of the result.

This is a completely different vehicle. The Evoltis Concept on a newly developed EV platform and will feature a pair of electric motors for both AWD capabilities and somewhere around 300-horsepower. The included high-capacity lithium-ion battery is said to deliver up to 310 miles (500km), of optimistic WLTP range.

Physically, the Evoltis looks like a cross between a RAV4 Trail and Subaru’s multiple VIZIV concepts. Unlike other Subaru concepts, apparently, the production version will go in the opposite direction of previous concepts. For years, Subaru’s teased attractive design studies only to water down the final product.

There’s a mild twist to this story. Subaru’s confirmed that the vehicle we know as the Ascent will be sold in the Philippines later this year under the “Evoltis” name. We’re thinking that the latter will eventually replace the Ascent and between now and 2025, consumers will have adopted the name.
