Subaru of America, Inc. today announced pricing on its first-ever all-electric SUV, the 2023 Subaru Solterra. The highly anticipated Solterra is packed with new in-vehicle technology while staying true to its Subaru heritage with industry-leading safety and go-anywhere capability. The 2023 Solterra is offered in three trim levels, Premium, Limited, and Touring, and will begin arriving in limited numbers at Subaru retailers this summer.

Pricing for the 2023 Solterra starts at $44,995 MSRP for the Premium trim level, before a potential Federal tax credit of up to $7,500. 1, 2 In addition, the Solterra may qualify for additional state incentives, including single rider carpool lane access in California. 3 The Limited trim carries a starting manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $48,495.

Solterra comes standard with a new Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system that now channels smooth linear output from Subaru StarDrive® Technology, providing outstanding traction and capability in all kinds of weather and terrain. Subaru StarDrive delivers substantial on-demand torque at all speeds with driver-selectable power and regenerative modes.

The all-new electric SUV delivers a total of 215 horsepower and 249 lb.-ft. of torque from front and rear electric motors. Solterra is equipped with Dual-Function X-MODE® with Snow / Dirt and Deep Snow / Mud modes on all trim levels. The system also features Grip Control and Downhill Assist Control for increased performance in low-friction and off-road conditions. With 8.3 inches of ground clearance, Solterra is best in its class. Standard Active Cornering Assist and Vehicle Stability Control provide better stability and handling. This combination provides versatility in both off-road and city driving.

Solterra’s high-capacity lithium-ion battery pack provides plenty of daily range. The electric SUV can quickly charge just about anywhere with its Level 2 AC and DC fast charging capability. With DC fast charging, Solterra can charge up to 80-percent of total battery capacity in under an hour. 4

To simplify the charging experience while traveling, mobile apps work with the vehicle’s multimedia system to help locate thousands of charging options nationwide, including thousands of DC fast-charging stations and Level 2 charging stations.

I’d still go for a Limited I think. It’s about 41 after the tax credit.

I am still going to save 2500 a year in fuel with it. Cost parity to my Outback XT in about 3-4 years.

Yeah I'm a bit surprised about the pricing. I thought It'd be a bit closer to the bZ4X's pricing.

A couple K more than I was hoping, but what's the alternative that you can actually get your hands on? Looks like I could get my hands on a Polestar2, but you're looking at ~$60K with AWD+plus package. Teslas are upper 50s and no tax credit... many models (e.g. Ioniq5) I can't even get in my region (North Dakota/Minnesota). Still a bit torn on Solterra vs. another Subaru...

If I can track down a new CrossTrek Limited, I’ll be going with that to replace my problematic CrossTrek that I bought used (abused). I should be able to get one for about $30k, which is very far below the cost of the Solterra Limited I have reserved, even after the tax credit which would take it down to about $42 k. I’m not willing to pay more for a Solterra than I could pay for a bz4X with more features. In about 10 years I’ll be ready to get rid of my last ICE car, and hopefully by then the cost of buying an EV will have started to come down instead of rapidly rising.

None of the other EVs I'm considering come close on features vs. money. An EV6 Wind AWD without the tech pkg. is more than the Touring. The GT-Line is a lot more (not to mention ADM for all EV6s) - although arguably the EV6 is more car (more range, faster charging.... but what besides that?). I was smitten by the Ioniq 5 at the NYIAS but I doubt I could get my hands on a Limited within the next 3-4 months.

Here's my take. In terms of brand, I want something that is reliable now as well as 6 years from now. I am not going to go the Hyundai/Kia route as I just don't trust them. They are making better cars, but they also produced engines that routinely failed. I don't trust them to create a reliable long term EV. Specs are better, but they are a non starter for me. So are domestic vehicles, watched too many Ray Rainman videos where domestic car makers use cheap low cost parts. I trust Mazda, Subaru, Toyota, Honda and Consumer Reports agrees.
Cost vs the BZ4X? Seems the Limited AWD BZ4X is $48K. Maybe the Toyota has ventilated seats, but I don't see the BZ4X having many more features than the Solterra.
The Solterra is just about here, I have a reservation, and I trust Subaru and Toyota to make a quality product and stand behind it. I won't get sucked into the spec sheet comparison of a manufacturer that I wouldn't buy an ICE vehicle from, let alone an EV.
