How To Order The New Subaru Solterra EV And Complete Trim Guide

Can you buy the new 2023 Subaru Solterra all-electric SUV in all 50 states, and what is the best trim level? Check out the complete details here.

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 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.

Only the Touring model has a sunroof? This isn’t very Subaru. Foresters all have huge sunroofs from Premium trim (one from the bottom) on up.

It is a glass roof, not a sun roof. Colors are limited to trim levels: premium gets hot red, limited gets lame white, and touring gets hazy.

I'm in Oklahoma. Since I can't open the glass roof, I'm going to settle for a lame white car because eventually I'll be caught out in a hail storm and I'll end up with an electric sun spotter car.

These limitations on the car are probably a result of supply chain issues. I wish Subaru would let us trade AC for the sunroof. But driving down the road with a sunroof open will affect the driving range.

Do you think things like the battery range and pricing are cast in stone now? Still lots of unanswered questions for a car that will probably require a reservation and not actually arrive until Q3. I really want to find the interior dimension from behind the front seats to the tailgate.
