It’s been in the rumor mill for awhile now, but today Subaru made it official: They are releasing an electric SUV next year, the Solterra. The Solterra is sort of a sister car to Toyota’s bZ4X (just rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it? It’s Subaru (well, and Toyota), and they might have a trick or two up their sleeve. ADVERTISEMENTThe idea here is that Subaru makes terrific AWD vehicles capable of composure on the road, and some light off-roading, so the car will be built around those qualities. With younger car buyers, and plenty of us not so young car enthusiasts who’ve been waiting for more outdoorsy-oriented EVs that aren’t going to cost $60-70k like the upcoming Rivian, this is fun news.
