Subaru’s new Solterra model year will be available in three different trim variants: Premium, Limited, and Touring. The range-topping Touring variant starts at $53,340, including the destination charge and delivery fee. However, Subaru mentions that the “2024 Solterra will qualify for applicable federal tax credits of up to $7,500 for some customers,” implying that it will not be available across the board.

In terms of the actual differences between the models, Subaru advertises the Touring trim as “more comfortable and stylish,” in addition to a “gloss black hood accent, panoramic glass moonroof with power sunshade, front and rear LED footwell lighting, newly standard ventilated front seats, a digital rearview mirror”. Furthermore, customers receive up to 10 days of the ‘Subaru Just Drive Rental’ programme, which is designed to allow owners to rent various Subaru vehicles through participating Subaru retailers, presumably in an attempt to convince them to buy more.

The Limited trim also includes a variety of entertainment features, such as “a 12.3-inch high-resolution touchscreen for infotainment with wireless compatibility with Apple and Android systems, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, satellite radio, available cloud-based navigation and a Harman Kardon premium audio system with 11 speakers.”

Subaru also mentions driver-assistance features, which would allow travelling in a lane “at speeds up to 25 mph with only driver supervision, including stop-and-go traffic. The 2024 Solterra can also change lanes on command by activating a turn signal, and the addition of Front Cross Traffic Alert makes pulling into an intersection safer by alerting the driver of potential collisions.”

The Solterra is still a fairly new model, as it was only launched in the USA in 2023, running on a 72.8 kWh lithium-ion battery with up to 360 km range and dual 80kW electric axle drives on the front and rear. As no mention was made of the technical specifications, it stands to reason that these figures remain.

With a 100kW DC fast charger, getting to 80 per cent charge could be done in fifty minutes, according to the manufacturer, which has been improved to 35 minutes, with a state of charge indicator displaying the estimated time to 80% or 100% for the 2024 Solterra.
