With a legacy rooted in adventure and the outdoors, it's only natural for Subaru to embrace the transition to more environmentally compatible automobility. Subaru first entered the electrified landscape with the Crosstrek plug-in hybrid. And now, the company is going all-in on battery power with the all-new 2023 Solterra EV. Named after the Latin words for "sun" and "earth," the Solterra blends Subaru's adventurous spirit and renowned safety with the energy and efficiency of an all-electric powertrain.
