Under the hood, a 71.4 kilowatt hour battery pack powers either the one or two electric motors, depending on whether you go for the front or all wheel drive variant. Subaru claims that the front wheel drive Solterra offers a range of 330 miles on a single full charge while the four wheel drive variant will offer 285 miles.

Notably, the Solterra supports DC fast charging speeds of up to 150 kW, which lets it charge the EV to 80 percent in about 30 minutes. It also houses a heat pump that reduces losses in driving range in cold weather and when the heated seats or steering wheel is in use. The Solterra will even offer buyers a panoramic glass sunroof or a metal roof with integrated solar panels.

Other features include support for wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, along with Subaru’s first fully automated parking assist system, support for smartphone as a key, up to 20 inch wheel sizes, and adaptive LED lights. The EV is expected to go on global sales sometime in mid 2022.
