Subaru Australia today confirms Australian specification for the all-new, all-electric Subaru Solterra SUV.
Solterra, Subaru’s first battery electric vehicle (BEV), is available in two variants, AWD and AWD Touring.
Built on the e-Subaru Global Platform, the Solterra brings everything owners love about Subaru vehicles over generations, trusted reliability, cutting-edge infotainment and safety technology, Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, and real SUV credentials, to an all-electric vehicle.
Priced from $77,990*, both variants will come standard with a complimentary five-year service plan, five-year roadside assistance, carpet mat set, cargo tray, and a 2kW (8 Amp) AC charging cable with 10 Amp wall plug for charging.
Powered by a high voltage 71.4kW lithium-ion battery, the Solterra delivers a maximum power output of 160kW and 337Nm of torque. Following Australian Design Rules (ADR81/02), which states that vehicles imported into Australia should be homologated with an NEDC claimed range figure, Solterra has an NEDC test range of 485 km1.
Charging the Solterra is simple with both AC and DC charging capability. Charging from 0-to-80 percent via a 150kW DC charger takes approximately 30 minutes, whereas via a single-phase 7kW AC charger 0-to-100 percent takes approximately nine and a half hours and 0-to-100 percent charge via an 11kW three-phase takes approximately six and a half hours2.
True to Subaru’s spirit, Solterra owners can explore a variety of road surfaces, thanks to its class-leading 212mm of ground clearance3 and Dual Mode X-Mode that works with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD) to provide exceptional grip and control. This driver-activated feature is designed to be used when road conditions become particularly treacherous or challenging, such as in slippery or icy weather, on steep hills, or in muddy terrain. Solterra also includes a new Grip Control function.
A central 12.3-inch high-definition touchscreen coupled with wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ connectivity4 and a high-quality 6-speaker or 10-speaker Harmon Kardon® sound system5 (exclusive to AWD Touring) makes entertainment and connectivity on road trips simple.
Exclusive to Solterra AWD Touring is a panoramic glass sunroof that offers a broader view of the sky and surroundings along with extra natural light in the cabin.
Subaru Australia’s Managing Director, Blair Read, said: “We are excited to welcome the Solterra to the Subaru model range. The Solterra delivers Subaru’s trusted reliability, diverse-terrain capability, safety, and engaging driving dynamics in Subaru’s first all-electric SUV.
“The smooth, linear output of the dual electric motors combined with Subaru’s legendary Symmetrical All Wheel Drive, means drivers have outstanding control and capability on all kinds of roads and conditions. The Solterra delivers the renowned driving feeling and confidence that Subaru owners demand.”
