Vehicle Launches
03 August 2022

Subaru of New Zealand announced the introduction of its first battery electric vehicle to the New Zealand market to New Zealand’s automotive journalists, with the long-awaited Solterra All-Wheel Drive confirmed for a 2023 arrival.

The Solterra heralds a new era of electrification for the brand while still delivering everything Subaru drivers love about Subaru – All-Wheel Drive (AWD), active safety technology, adventure capabilities and durable, reliable engineering – in an all-electric vehicle.

The Subaru Solterra is named by combining the Latin words for ‘sun’ and ‘earth’ and it is built on the new, all-electric vehicle architecture e-Subaru Global Platform. The Solterra is designed to provide an electric offering without compromising on the brand’s distinctive features and abilities.

The Solterra SUV EV has the same capability in any conditions, and on any terrain as all other Subarus courtesy of the X-Mode AWD control system that enhances the sense of security on rough roads. The new Grip Control function enables the Solterra to run at a constant speed, while stabilising the vehicle, when the going gets tough.

The Subaru Solterra SUV EV will be available at Armstrong’s Subaru Lower Hutt and Christchurch. Fill out the form below to register your interest.

Like the other Subaru SUV models, Solterra features the X-Mode AWD control system that enhances the sense of security on rough roads. By adding the new Grip Control function, which enables the vehicle to run at a constant speed while stabilising it - even on rough roads - the capability is further enhanced.
The Solterra EV brings the Subaru brand’s trusted reliability, state-of-the-art safety technology, and legendary Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive engineering to an all-electric SUV.
