The 2023 Subaru Solterra is priced, and the new electric crossover starts at $ 46,220 with a $ 1,225 destination charge. This is a decent amount more expensive than we expected after Solterra’s first drive, as the first impression made us crave a sub- $ 40,000 starting price.
Base model (premium) solvers come with a lot of standard equipment, but we will be tempted to upgrade to mid-level limited right now. Choose for $ 49,720, and you’ll get a larger 12.3-inch touchscreen with 20-inch wheels (upgrade to 18-inch alloy), roof rail, a 10-way power driver’s seat, heated steering wheel / heated rear seat, wireless Please. Apple CarPlay / Wireless Android Auto, a wireless phone charger and much more.
For an extra 500 3,500, those tools leave a mid-level pruning feeling. If you pony up the top-line Turing model, it will cost you $ 53,220. It features a digital rearview mirror, ventilated front seats, panoramic moonroof, and front and rear LED footwall lighting. You also get the ability to specify a two-tone paint option, while the other trims are all monotonous.
Anyone who reserves a Solterra gets a small charging bonus. You will be able to choose between EVGo Charging Credit or the money to buy and install a Level 2 home charger from QMerit. All customers will be able to redeem 10-day no-charge fares from participating Subaru dealers. That said, the rental period seems to be a one-time contract, not a recurring / annual benefit.
We will also mention that Solterra qualifies for a full 7,500 federal tax credit that would require the price to be more compliant for many buyers. Compared to the Toyota bZ4X Twin, the Solterra is a little more expensive. A base AWD bZ4X starts at 45,215. If you don’t need an all-wheel drive, the bZ4X can be had for as low as 43,215. And if Solterra has a short list of your EVs to consider, know that it will hit dealerships this summer.
