Richard Lucas Subaru believes in upholding ourselves to that same standard of quality, which is why we're the dealership New Jersey residents trust the most when it comes to being the one-stop Subaru shop for the garden state.

The Subaru Solterra: A Foray Into Electric Power 

For those of you who might be wondering what exactly the Solterra is, besides being a member of the Subaru fleet, come with us while we dissect this driving machine. First and foremost, let's talk about the revolution that's spread across the entire automotive industry and is taking the world by storm. We're talking about the EV takeover that's inspired many new and exciting vehicles that push limits. Not only do EVs lend a major hand in lowering the harmful emissions that regular gas-powered vehicles produce every day, but they also allow drivers to go the distance without having to worry about repeated fill-ups at the pump. 

The Solterra marks a bold, new chapter in the legacy of Subaru that's getting expanded upon every single year. For the first time in its legendary history, the Subaru is going all-electric! That's right. The Solterra will still have all of the attributes that you've come to depend on from Subaru, such as Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, a style that exceeds normal conception, and the ability to go off-roading without breaking a sweat. You'll have all of those attributes and much more, but most importantly, you'll be doing it with an electric powertrain.

A Sight to See in 2023

Making its debut for the 2023 model year, the Subaru Solterra has already caused quite a stir within the industry itself. Car & Driver is praising the vehicle for its features and Subaru's ability to adapt EV technology to its brand without compromising the ideals that the manufacturer is known for. Operating on a powertrain that consists of two electric motors, the Solterra doesn't lack anything in the way of performance. The dual electric motors are capable of generating up to 215 horsepower and 248 lb-ft of torque, and they are compatible with the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive that Subaru owners know and love. With an approximate range of 220 miles on a full charge, it's more than apparent that Subaru has merged the two realms of performance and practicality. 

For its debut year, Subaru is rolling out the red carpet when it comes to making a wide range of safety features standard across all three trims of the Solterra. In an age where some manufacturers are withholding the latest in driver assistance technology by raising the prices and keeping them exclusive to their upper trim lines, Subaru understands the necessity of the average consumer a bit more. The 2023 Subaru Solterra will come equipped with Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane Keep Assist, Pre-Collision Braking, Safety Exit Alert, and Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control. The Solterra is also equipped with a 360-degree camera system that will let you see all around you, which is extremely helpful when parking or backing out of a parking spot.

Of course, because this is a brand new entry into Subaru's majestic fleet, the design for the 2023 model year makes quite an impactful statement. While not having an identical design to its older sibling, the Outback, though the similarities are present, the Solterra is in a world all its own. Set to compete against the other EV and hybrid SUVs, its sleek design is the ideal compromise between a sedan and a full-size SUV model while possessing a sportiness that few vehicles come close to achieving. 

If you are impressed by the exterior, then the interior is likely to blow you away. Anchored by an available 12.3-inch infotainment screen, the sloping windshield and mounted instrument cluster give off the aesthetic of sitting in the cockpit of a spacecraft. If there was ever a need for excitement while being behind the wheel of an EV, Subaru has accomplished this task with stunning perfection in the 2023 Solterra.
