The best performances are never rushed. So, we’ve taken our time to develop an electric SUV worthy of wearing the Subaru badge. And now, the wait is almost over.

We’re taking electric to places it’s never been able to reach before, with the all-electric, All-Wheel Drive Subaru Solterra arriving in New Zealand in December.

Our future focus has been on durability, better tech and more space. Sitting roughly size-wise between a Forester and Outback, Solterra is spacious enough for family-sized adventures and powerful enough to take on the most remotely beautiful corners of Subaru country.

There are two Solterra variants available, which start at RRP $79,990* but with pre-orders already filling up fast, now’s the time to make sure you have a Solterra secured because initial stock of both will be limited.


The Subaru Solterra EV

The details

The Solterra will have an RRP of $79,990* and the Solterra Touring will be RRP $84,990*. There’s also a two-tone exterior colour option for the Solterra Touring for RRP $85,990*.

The Subaru Solterra will have two electric motors producing 160kW. The Solterra will have an expected range of up to 485km (NEDC)* which is based on EU specification and NZ specification will be confirmed closer to the Solterra launch. But like a petrol car – the exact range depends on road and usage variables.
