2023 Subaru Solterra Early Review | Consumer Reports 1

For more on the 2023 Subaru Solterra go to:

The 2023 Subaru Solterra is the first EV offering from the brand. Sharing a platform with the nearly identical Toyota bZ4X, the all-electric SUV claims an EPA-rated 222 miles of range, and is offered in three trim levels. We purchased a Limited trim with all-wheel drive for our test program, at a cost of just over $50,000. With an EV market that is becoming increasingly crowded with each passing day, can the Solterra deliver what people love about the Subaru brand in an electric package? Or does the shared platform approach introduce compromises not found in other vehicles like the Hyundai Ioniq 5, Tesla Model Y, and Ford Mustang Mach-E?

  1. About 5 years too late.

  2. 50 thousand for a range of 222 miles and slow charging? NO

    When will this be available in the United States dealerships?

    • Hopefully never. This is an awful EV, just like the Toyota cousin. No one should be looking to buy this.

  4. Looks cool on the outside but very plain on the inside. Not many bells and whistles from what I see. And no glove box?

    I’m not a Tesla fan but I have to say that when comparing interior space, charging, range, and (ridiculous) price tag, this car is not a competitor to the AWD Tesla Model Y.

    Please be careful with the wheels. Please check wheel bolt tightness every time you drive it. I saw some very disturbing things in the news about a recall for wheels falling off. Please address this in your full review. Maybe do an episode on how to check and what to do if you are driving and this happens.

  7. When the masses can afford an EV ($50K?? Wait until dealer MSRP markups begin), then there will be more EV vehicles on the road!

    You’re way too lenient and made so many excuses for this Toyota/Lexus/Subaru!

    This is the one to skip. Being the first EV attempt from Toyota/Subaru, it seems like a half baked solution. So better to wait for the second generation

  10. Great daily driver for 40k. Just doesn’t have the fundamentals to compete at $50k+

  11. “modest” is euphemism for💩
