Subaru Corporation announced the all-new 2023 Solterra EV pricing in Japan and a new trim level not available in North America. Subaru of America gets the off-road-ready 2023 Subaru Solterra with standard all-wheel-drive and X-Mode for off-pavement performance. Japan customers can order the Solterra with all-wheel-drive (AWD) and a front-wheel-drive (FWD) trim level.
Subaru of America has decided not to offer U.S. customers the Solterra front-wheel-drive (two-wheel-drive) trim level. Subaru has not commented on why they won't provide the two-wheel-drive version, but it's likely to separate the new EV from the competition.
What is the price of the 2023 Subaru Solterra?
The Subaru Solterra all-wheel-drive trim level in Japan is priced between 5,800,000 and 6,380,000 Yen or $46,052 - $50,648 USD. It gives customers an idea of the price of the new all-electric Solterra when it hits U.S. shores.
The price of the Japan-spec front-drive Solterra is between 5,400,000 and 5,940,000 Yen or $42,879 to $47,167 USD. Subaru of America will announce the price of its all-wheel-drive models soon.
Subaru of America will offer three Solterra trim levels; Premium, Limited, and Touring. U.S. models will likely be priced around $40,000 for the base trim and approach $50,000 for the fully-loaded Touring trim level. Check out the complete model guide here.
How much range does the Solterra have?
Subaru says the all-wheel-drive Solterra’s estimated range is more than 220 miles, although EPA testing hasn't confirmed the figure.
Can you still order the 2023 Subaru Solterra?
The 2023 Subaru Solterra will arrive in U.S. showrooms in June or July. Unfortunately, it's already sold out. Subaru of America says its allotment for the first year sold out within the first seventy-two hours after opening the reservation system.
Subaru only has plans to sell 1,800 2023 Solterra all-electric compact SUVs in Japan in the first year. Subaru of America is getting 6,000 new models for its U.S. customers. A report says Subaru will ramp up production for the 2024 model year.
The 2023 Subaru Solterra is designed for U.S. customers with active lifestyles and only comes in all-wheel-drive trim levels. Pricing for U.S. customers will be announced soon. Stay tuned.
