The highly anticipated 2024 Subaru Solterra near Santa Fe, NM is set to continue its journey along the EV highway for the upcoming model year. As the company’s first all-electric offering, it debuted in 2022 for the 2023 model year and is expected to arrive in 2024 with no major changes. The Solterra is a joint venture between Subaru and Toyota, and it showcases the merging of advanced technology with Subaru’s all-wheel drive prowess. The Solterra aims to find its particular spot in the EV market by joining the outdoorsy spirit of Subaru vehicles with emissions-free driving.
The Subaru Solterra is built on the same platform as the Toyota bZ4X, therefore sharing a kinship with its “cousin” that benefits from Toyota’s proficiency in electrification and Subaru’s expertise in AWD. The two vehicles have a similar shape, but the Subaru Solterra establishes its uniqueness through subtle design differences. From its familiar hexagonal faux front grille to its distinctive bumper design, Subaru’s characteristic touches give the Solterra a bold and assertive appearance that distinguishes it from its counterpart.
We expect the 2024 Solterra to maintain its dual-motor, all-wheel-drive setup, which channels 215 horsepower and 249 lb-ft of torque to tackle and conquer various terrains. And despite no anticipation of performance-focused updates for the new model, enhancements related to efficiency could occur, providing a slight boost to the EV’s range.
Currently, the Solterra delivers a battery capacity of 72.8 kWh, which produces an estimated range of around 228 miles. With charging capabilities of up to 100 kW using DC fast-charging stations, the sleek Solterra combines practicality and convenience for drivers.
Designed to enhance your driving experience, the interior of the 2024 Solterra brings an ergonomic and technology-laden cabin. You’ll enjoy a blend of physical controls and cutting-edge tech in this well-appointed interior. The base Premium model features an 8-inch touchscreen that integrates wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for seamless connectivity on the go. Still, you can upgrade to the available 12.3-inch display if you like a bigger screen.
You’ll also appreciate dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, cloth upholstery, a heated steering wheel, 60/40 split-folding rear seats, and a host of advanced driver-assist and safety features, including the following:
The 2024 Subaru Solterra near Santa Fe, NM will likely continue its availability in three distinct trims: the Premium, as mentioned earlier, Limited, and Touring. Each variant offers a blend of amenities to accommodate a range of preferences and budgets.
In addition to the features already listed, the Premium also comes standard with integrated roof rails, 18-inch alloy wheels, and LED headlights.
Moving up to the Limited trim brings everything from Premium, plus 20-inch wheels, heated rear seats, the 12.3-inch touchscreen, and more. A 360-degree camera system, Advanced Park, and additional safety features enhance this trim.
Finally, the Touring trim offers more luxury and elegance, including everything from the others, and adding LED footwell lighting, a digital rearview mirror, ventilated front seats, and two-tone paint.
