Anticipating the All-Electric Subaru Solterra SUV

Subaru Logo | Beaverton, OR

Here at CARR Subaru, we’re thrilled about the upcoming all-electric Subaru Solterra SUV. The automaker recently released an exciting sneak preview of this new model.

The Solterra will be a new type of energy-friendly SUV in Subaru’s already impressive lineup. Keeping the environment in mind, Subaru appropriately named the Solterra after two Latin words: “sol,” which means sun, and “terra,” which means Earth. The name makes for a perfect combination to describe a vehicle that Subaru anticipates will elevate its adventure-friendly vehicle family to new energy-efficient heights. The Solterra is expected to go on sale in Beaverton, Oregon, in 2022.

At present, we don’t know for sure about the Solterra’s dimensions and exterior style. The EV’s build could range anywhere between the profile of the Crosstrek, the physique of the Forester, or the sleek shape of the Outback.

But we do know that the Subaru Solterra will be built on the e-SUBARU Global Platform, as the brand has confirmed. The e-SUBARU Global Platform utilizes Subaru’s all-wheel-drive experience with Toyota’s demonstrated capability for developing electric vehicles.

The Solterra will also feature an “EV” badge in a blue shade similar to the 2021 Subaru Legacy’s Abyss Blue Pearl. More 2023 Subaru Solterra updates are available for eager buyers on Subaru’s website. And make sure to stay tuned to CARR Subaru’s blog in the days ahead for more details as we hear more about the upcoming all-electric Subaru Solterra.

Subaru Demonstrates the “World’s First Self-Driving Maneuver”

Subaru Impreza | Carr Subaru | Beaverton, OR

It’s not exactly breaking news that autonomous driving technology is developing rapidly and drawing more attention with each passing week. Recently, Subaru solidified itself as a major player in the race to perfect driverless vehicles, as it just executed what it calls “The World’s First Self-Driving Maneuver” using a 2021 Forester and two other models.

The maneuver in question was executed on Subaru’s Research and Experiment Center Proving Grounds, where a 2021 Forester successfully merged with two other vehicles — a WRX S4 and an Impreza Sport — without any human input. Interestingly enough, the models involved in the test communicated via 5G and V2X technology.

The world-first autonomous merging maneuver came as a result of the partnership between Subaru and SoftBank Corp., a multinational holding company with substantial stakes in technology companies. The two organizations have been working together on autonomous driving research since 2019.

Following the success of the merging maneuver, it doesn’t seem like Subaru has any intention of slowing down. According to a report by Denis Flierl at Torque News, the automaker stated that it’s driving toward a goal of “zero fatal accidents by 2030,” and is actively developing new artificial intelligence technology for use in future vehicles.

As a proud member of the Subaru family, we couldn’t be more thrilled to see what industry-leading innovations are coming next. Be sure to keep your eyes tuned to the CARR Subaru blog for more news about Subaru’s breakthroughs!
