Subaru said revealed that its first all-electric car will be called the Solterra and has given us an idea of what it would look like in a photo that hides a bit in the shadows. Solterra is derived from the Latin words “sun” and “earth” and was chosen to “represent Subaru’s commitment to providing SUV-type natural packaging capabilities.” The manufacturer of the car designed the car in conjunction with Toyota based on the e-SUBARU electric platform they developed together.
While Toyota provided technical assistance in this connection, Subaru contributed to the expertise of all-wheel drive. Toyota is also rolling out its own car based on a modular platform called chantika, as well as Autoblog notes, the two already show the similarity of the family. We’ll have to wait for more Solterra screenshots at first, but it looks like the car will have smaller headlights and LEDs. The company has also released a close-up photo showing its name and EV badge on the back:
Subaru is expected to launch Solterra sometime this year, as Toyota will re-launch the bZ4X 2021 before it expires. EV is available for sale in 2022 in the US, Canada, China, Europe and Japan.
