First Look at Subaru’s STI Race Car

Subaru has yet to launch its first electric endeavor to the masses, the 2023 Subaru Solterra, yet the automaker has two new treats underway. The Electrek reported that the Japanese automaker confirmed two new concepts at the Tokyo Auto Salon (January 14-16,2022).

One concept Subaru shared with the masses was the first all-electric race car. The STI E-RA Concept is just a mere taste of what’s ready to set the racetrack ablaze. The all-electric race car will generate 1,073 horsepower from its four Yamaha motors. The extensive downforce and all-wheel drive pairs with torque vectoring to ensure maximum grip and stability.

Even though the 60 kWh battery appeals relatively small, Subaru affirms that the E-RA flourishes on the track. The E-RA concept intends to set a Nürburgring lap time of 6 minutes and 40 seconds shortly. Admittedly, the Subaru race car is not as swift as the Volkswagen ID.R, but the STI E-RA will break hearts and shatter records. The Volkswagen ID.R set a record of six minutes and five seconds. Yet, the Subaru E-RA will easily trample Tesla’s Model S Plaid, which snail-paced the trail at 7 minutes and 35 seconds. Testing for the E-RA will commence at the Japanese racing circuit later in 2022.

Subaru also revealed the Solterra STI Concept, and it’s no surprise the new trim for the crossover is sportier than its brethren. Unfortunately, the Japanese automaker never disclosed if the Solterra Concept receives any under-body alterations. However, the upgraded Solterra does feature a roof spoiler, skirt spoilers, and unique customization that differentiate the EV and its delivery of a sharper performance.

The new Subaru STI E-RA concept embodies the automaker’s motorsport plans and also serves as an affirmation of marvelous things to come. Comparable to the Volkswagen racer, the STI Concepts shows just how serious Subaru is about its next level on the electric vehicle journey, whether practical or high-performance.

The Seven Sister automakers’ true challenge comes from materializing the lessons of the concept vehicles into an everyday essential. Undoubtedly, there’s a slew of automakers tardy to the EV party. Yet Subaru is no stranger to precision, and its electrification efforts reflect two concepts that are right on time.
