Gotta ask... Why are you interested in the Solterra? You've got the Model Y, and have seen you say before you wouldn't do any off-roading with the Solterra. When compared to the Y, the Solterra has slow charging, can't get the $7500 tax credit, less interior room, less power, less range, and is not even really a Subaru. If you don't want it to go off-road there are many other better choices out there for an EV.
Happy to answer. We love the Model Y and also had a Model 3. Convinced my parents in FL to get a MY. We will buy more Teslas.
1) MY is a lease, ending soon, and we cannot buy it out.
2) New MY is about $15k more than my 2020
3) I’ve owned 6 Subarus since 2004
4) I’m a Subaru Ambassador
So, is it a downgrade? Yes. Is it the best alternative…eh, I can’t buy a Korean car and the ID.4 doesn’t one pedal drive. Non-starter.
There’s a good chance we won’t get the Solterra if it doesn’t lease well. I don’t want to spend more per month on it than my more expensive Giulia or equally priced old Model Y.
