A Comprehensive Look at the All-New 2023 Subaru Solterra

November 4th, 2022 by


The all-new, all-electric 2023 Subaru Solterra is here. As Subaru’s first electric vehicle, the Solterra serves as a highly capable SUV with all the great qualities that make Subaru so unique. The EV SUV rides on Subaru’s new e-Subaru Global Platform and offers consumers impressive performance and versatility. In designing the 2023 Solterra, Subaru partnered with Toyota to develop its EV platform. This partnership will help both automakers continue offering high-quality EVs and electrifying their lineups within the next decade. For now, we’ll look at the all-new 2023 Subaru Solterra and see what consumers can expect. 

Driving the 2023 Subaru Solterra

The all-new 2023 Subaru Solterra comes equipped with a dual motor setup. Two electric motors provide the SUV with 215 horsepower and 249 lb-ft of torque. As is expected from Subaru, the Solterra utilizes an all-wheel drive system. This unique system provides consumers with smooth handling and an engaging driving experience. Owners can use several driving modes, including Eco, Normal, Power, and X-Mode. Combined with 8.3-inches of ground clearance, these modes allow the Solterra to tackle trails and terrain easily. Paddles on the steering wheel also allow regenerative braking force to be adjusted, which works well with the Solterra’s S-Pedal drive. This reduces the fatigue of switching between the gas and brakes.

As for the 2023 Solterra’s range, the electric SUV gets an estimated 228 miles of range when equipped with 18-inch wheels. This comes down to 222 miles with the 20-inch wheels. For charging capability, the Solterra can recharge in nine hours with a 6.6-kWh charger. This time comes down significantly with a 100-kW DC fast charger allowing the Solterra to hit 80 percent charge in just 56 minutes. 

Inside the 2023 Solterra

Inside the 2023 Subaru Solterra, owners will find a high-mounted digital gauge cluster, an elevated center console, and a 12.3-inch touchscreen. The interior cabin features a two-tone StarTex upholstery with an illuminated trim. Spacious and comfortable, the electric SUV offers 30 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded down. The Solterra also features a low load height and a wide rear gate so owners can store as much as they need. Roof rails also help with more oversized cargo like bikes and extra gear.

 For safety, the Subaru Solterra uses Subaru’s advanced EyeSight safety suite. The suite includes features like an all-new 360-degree surround-view camera, a blind spot monitoring system, and a pre-collision system. Additional features include adaptive cruise control, lane tracing assist, and automatic emergency braking. Starting at an MSRP of $44,995 (plus destination fee), the 2023 Subaru Solterra is a highly capable electric SUV. Available in three trims, Premium, Limited, and Touring, those who love the qualities of Subaru will find it and more with the eco-friendly Solterra.
