Subaru Solterra 2022: The Japanese brand’s first electric crossover.

The partnership between Toyota and Subaru continues to give the automotive world technical «twins»: following a pair of GR86/BRZ sport coupes, electric compact crossovers will soon hit the market — the first models for the new joint electric platform and the first full «green» cars for both Japanese brands.

Toyota will be represented by the bZ4X, the pre-production version of which was shown last April.

Subaru, on the other hand, chose a more euphonious name for their electric car, making it out of Latin words meaning «sun» (sol) and «earth» (terra) — Subaru Solterra 2022.


The electric «bogie» for the Subaru Solterra 2022 and a large number of subsequent models, the companies designed together, immediately laying it great variability of configuration: it allows the installation of several engines, on any of the axles, so theoretically allows you to make cars with any type of drive.

Its feature is also an all-electric steering mechanism, which in theory allows you to adjust any gear ratio «steering column», plus the developers have declared the presence in the models of solar panels, which will recharge the traction battery.

Externally, Subaru Solterra 2022 model year completely copies the body of Toyota bZ4X parkettes except for the front, where there should be its own branded grille and original optics.

The interior of the car has not yet been presented, but if you look at the already published images of the pre-production bZ4X cabin, in Salterra we should expect the appearance of a steering wheel in the form of a steering wheel, a huge central multimedia display and an unusual superstructure with a small dashboard.

Also the manufacturer promises a high level of comfort inside the car, a flat floor and a lot of free space for rear passengers, although in general the new electric car remains a compact car of Subaru Forester format.

Technical specifications and stuffing

Technical details about the novelty is still kept secret, which can be explained by the manufacturer’s lack of a clear understanding of what modifications will be released on the market.

The Japanese only reported that their new platform is designed in such a way that it is possible to build vehicles of different lengths, mount different drive circuits and put batteries of different sizes.

It is possible that closer to the official debut Subaru / Toyota will decide which configurations to prefer, while not forgetting to look at the nearest competitors.

The Subaru Solterra and Toyota bZ4X are scheduled for release in mid-2022.

Both models will be on sale at the same time, «dividing» markets in advance, and the first deliveries of cars will cover the U.S., Europe, and China at once.

Perhaps one of the «twins» will be offered to Russian dealers, but this will obviously be preceded by a study of the potential demand and economic feasibility of selling such «electric cars» in Russia.
