How To Order The New Subaru Solterra EV And Complete Trim Guide
The all-new 2023 Subaru Solterra EV will be available for customers in the U.S. in mid-2022, but where can you buy the new EV compact SUV? We reported that the Solterra would only be available in the states following California's emissions program, but it will not be limited to those states.
We had heard a report that Subaru dealers have the option to become EV certified, and customers can reserve it on the website and select the dealer of choice starting in late January. But Subaru did not confirm the information.
Subaru Report reached out to Subaru of America, and Todd Hill, SOA's Product Public Relations Manager, told us, "For now, we are advising those interested in the Solterra to visit subaru.com/solterra-ev for information and encourage them to sign up for updates to receive the latest information when it becomes available."
What is the price of the Subaru Solterra?
The 2023 Subaru Solterra will come in three trim levels for U.S. customers. Subaru has not released pricing information, but the new EV should be priced around $40,000 for the base trim and could approach $50,000 for the fully-loaded Touring trim level.
What is the best Solterra trim level?
The Premium trim level is the base model and comes amply equipped. We would choose the Solterra Limited trim because it has more features active customers want. Check out the lineup below and each trim level's standard features.
