Subaru is speeding into the electric vehicle market with its first EV, the Solterra.
The all-new 2023 Subaru Solterra is Subaru's first-ever electric vehicle. Built on its e-Subaru Global Platform—the automaker's first all-electric vehicle architecture—the Solterra is an electric SUV featuring Subaru's symmetrical all-wheel drive system.

Specs and stats of the 2023 Subaru Solterra

The new Solterra produces a combined 215 horsepower and 249 lb.-ft. of torque from its front and rear electric motors. It also features multiple drive modes as well as downhill assist for better performance in muddy, slippery, or off-road conditions. 
The car has a ground clearance of just over 8 inches, which makes it more versatile for off-road and city driving.
Subie's first electric vehicle—which shares a common platform with the Toyota bZ4X—can get up to 228 miles of range from its lithium-ion battery pack. It can also charge up to 80% total battery capacity in under an hour using DC fast charging. 
To help locate charging stations away from home, the Solterra's multimedia system connects with mobile apps to help locate charging stations across the U.S.
It also comes with a host of driver assist features, such as automatic pre-collision braking, adaptive cruise control and Subaru's EyeSight tech, which monitors traffic, adjusts cruise control, and warns drivers when they're leaving their lane.

A range of colors for the 2023 Subaru Solterra

Some paint options depend on trim level, Subaru offers the Solterra in black and smoked carbon, while you can opt for harbor mist gray pearl, elemental red pearl, and cosmic white pearl for an additional $395. You can also get a two-tone paint job for $495 or $890 depending on the color.

Free car rentals with purchase

One odd thing that Subaru is offering with the purchase or lease of a new Solterra is 10 days of Subaru Just DRIVE Rental for free from their Subaru dealer. This program lets Subaru customers rent Subaru vehicles through participating retailers. 
Does this mean that Subaru is anticipating potential inventory disruptions or supply chain issues for its service centers? Who knows, but it's odd to hand out a week and a half of free car rentals to someone right after they purchased their own new vehicle.

2023 Subaru Solterra pricing

Including its destination and delivery fees, the 2023 Subaru Solterra starts at $46,220 for the Premium trim level before applying a potential $7,500 federal tax credit. 
The Limited trim starts at $49,720 while consumers will pay at least $53,220 for the Solterra's top-tier Touring trim—not necessarily what you'd call affordable, but that seems to be the way EVs are trending lately given the skyrocketing cost of raw materials.

Insurance for your Subaru

On average, Subaru drivers pay $1,583 each year for car insurance, which can vary depending on the model. 
You can probably expect to pay a bit more for that on the Subaru Solterra, however, because the cost of repair for electric vehicles is generally higher than their internal-combustion counterparts.
But don't let that stop you—you're in the right place. Jerry customers save an average of over $800 a year to insure their vehicle.
If you’re deterred by the work of gathering quotes and you’d rather leave it to someone else, the Jerry app sources quotes from 55+ insurance companies, like Nationwide, Allstate, Safeco, Progressive, and Travelers.
Jerry even helps cancel your old policy once you’ve made your pick. So don’t pay more for the same coverage, make sure you’re getting the fairest price possible.
