What Will Subaru’s Electric ‘STI’ Sporty Model Be Called?

April 12th, 2023 by

In the present time and age, Subaru desires to head all-electric, and what better way than revamping the STI moniker?



As the world keeps enhancing and the globe becomes increasingly more electric, each vehicle brand has begun rolling out a lineup of innovative cars. New EVs are intended for efficiency, comfort, and high performance. With the impending of their entrance into the electric SUV world withinside the Solterra, Subaru has made a concerted effort to carry the STi call in the electric-powered form again. Subaru has filed for a trademark in Germany that protects the ‘STe’ nameplate. The legendary STI moniker that so many vehicles have retired over the years. It may be Subaru’s latest in the electric performance world. We should see the rebirth of one of the most advanced automobile sub-brands known to man—an all-electric powered successor to the Subaru STi sports vehicle.


The ‘STe’ trademark was filed in Europe and not in Japan or the United States, nations in which the brand has a primary presence. The STe name is an imaginative play on the STi abbreviation– which stands for Subaru Tecnica International. The ‘E’ in STe presumable stands for electric, a gateway into the electric car world. Subaru has started to make waves in the EV space already, and Subaru has kept it refrained from research and development and putting its focus on race cars. 


The car manufacturer has grown with its suites of SUVs, along with the Forester and the Outback. The Solterra could also get the STe name. Subaru has launched new electric-powered concepts, and the trademarking of the STe marque is fuel to the fire. Subaru’s future is electric.


Subaru has been involved in many EV projects, especially in the motorsports world. They have unveiled concepts like the STI E-RA, which shows that the brand has still held off on using the STe name officially but may be coming. It seems much like the rebirth of the old STI is coming. The new STe might rival the WRX. The 2023 WRX sports car delivers plenty of power, a track-tuned suspension for precision control, and a standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. With its standard 2.4-liter direct-injection turbocharged Subaru Boxer engine, the four-door 2023 WRX delivers 271 horsepower. Every WRX sports sedan in the lineup is packed with state-of-the-art technology. Made for precision driving, the comfortable five-seat interior with 60/40-split flat-folding rear seatbacks also have plenty of space, and the cargo area has variably that allows you to carry many different things.


We look forward to what Subaru has in store for the STe trademark and its steps to taking over the electric vehicle industry.
