Subaru introduces the STI E-RA, an electric sports car with 1,100 hp

After hitting the sky in various competitions such as the World Rally Championship and consolidating the acronym STI as a myth among motor enthusiasts, Subaru is now preparing the next step in its sports and development strategy. For the first time in its history, the Japanese will set aside the legendary boxer engines to embrace electric technology, and after introducing the Solterra, the company’s first electric SUV, they have now gone further with the STI E -RA, the electric prototype of a competition hypercar with almost 1,100 hp.

Naturally coming from a Subaru, this electric car uses an all-wheel drive system thanks to the electric motors it has on each wheel, and which, together, give a total combined power of 800 kW, the equivalent of 1,088 Conventional CVs. The four electric motors of this STI E-RA can operate independently and synchronized according to the specific needs of traction at any given time, thanks to an electric differential that the brand ensures is very accurate. The four electric propellers are not manufactured by Subaru, but have been commissioned by Yamaha.

The aesthetic presence of the Subaru STI E-RA meets aerodynamic criteria, with a very low and wide body reminiscent of vehicles competing in the World Endurance Championship or the 24 Hours of Le Mans. In fact, the prototype meets the demands of the FIA ​​for the future championship of electric GT or E-GT, although it far exceeds the power limit allowed to participate in this future competition, which is not more 577 hp, almost half the gross power of this model.

The Subaru STI E-RA is still in the testing phase, and in 2022 it will continue to develop its potential on several Japanese circuits with a view to trying to get a good record on the Nürburgring Nordschleife track this year. According to Subaru, the goal of its STI E-RA will be to get down to 6 minutes and 40 seconds on the old German circuit, a record within reach of very few vehicles in the world.
