The Solterra is definitely an exciting addition to the EV market, being Subaru’s first EV. It’s all-wheel-drive as standard - no surprise given Subaru’s famous off-roading exploits. Safety features for driver assistance and collision avoidance, like the 360-degree panoramic monitors, come as standard, giving you peace of mind on the road. Plus, the inside is spacious and comes with top tech. Safe to say we’re impressed with Subaru’s first all-electric option.


Well thought out with a modern feel. The Solterra’s interior offers decent amounts of space, with a flat floor and long wheelbase giving plenty of legroom. Its panoramic roof adds to its spaciousness, creating a light and airy cabin. It includes Subaru’s most advanced tech yet - Apple CarPlay and Android Auto combined with a lovely touchscreen inside brings it in line with some of the best EVs around.

What is your estimated range based on?

We take real world range from EV database, which combines the predicted range of an EV in cold weather with the predicted range of an EV driving in warm weather.

For cold weather, this assumes it’s -10 degrees celsius with heating on. For warmer weather, it’s based on 23 degrees celsius and there’s no A/C on.

Predicting exact range is tricky, and range will depend on speed, style of driving, weather conditions and route conditions.

What affects EV range?

Many things can impact the range you get in your EV, there are outside factors and ones you can control or mitigate. Temperature (both of the car and outside environment), your driving style, weather, the surfaces you drive on and the spec of your car can all make a difference to your actual range.
