The presentation of the Subaru Solterra on November 11th

Just yesterday, Toyota unveiled the production version of the bZ4X, and a little later Subaru announced that on November 11 it will present the “brother” model, the Solterra. This was co-developed with Toyota, with the electric SUV being the company’s first model based on the global e-Subaru platform, which is a variation of Toyota’s modular e-TNGA platform.

The name “Solterra” was created by combining the two words “Sol” and “Terra”, the Latin words for the Sun and the Earth respectively. Subaru states that it gave this name to its electric vehicle:

In recognition of Mother Nature and further development of the form of coexistence with her, with our customers, and to symbolize our commitment to provide the classic capabilities of a Subaru SUV that goes everywhere, in an all-electric vehicle.

The Solterra will be part of Subaru’s SUV range, the XV, Forester, Outback and Ascent, and will hit the markets of Japan, the USA, Canada, Europe and China around the middle of 2022.

According to the information so far, the car will produce at least 280 horses, it will be four-wheel drive with one electric motor per axle, with its battery offering it an autonomy of 500 kilometers per charge. However, the four-wheel drive bZ4X has two electric motors, each delivering 80 kW. Their combined output is 160 kW (217.5 hp) and 336 Nm of torque, with the final speed not changing. However, the 0-100 km / h comes in at 7.7 seconds. The Subaru model may have more powerful electric motors.
