Electric vehicle shoppers will have one more SUV to add to the list with the upcoming 2023 Subaru Solterra. Preceding the Solterra’s arrival at dealerships this summer, Subaru has revealed pricing and trim details for its first all-electric SUV, along with an updated expected range.

The Solterra will start at $46,220 (all prices include destination but exclude any tax credits) and come in three trims: Premium, Limited and Touring. All models offer standard all-wheel drive and Subaru’s EyeSight driver-assist suite, which includes automatic pre-collision braking, automatic pre-collision throttle management, lane departure warning, and a blind spot monitor with lane change assist and rear cross-traffic alert.

Initially, Subaru predicted a 220-mile range for the Solterra, which has now been boosted to an EPA-estimated 228 miles. Upon its arrival, the Solterra will join its cousin EV, the 2023 Toyota bZ4X, along with rivals like the Volkswagen ID.4 and Ford Mustang Mach-E.


The base Solterra Premium trim starts at $46,220 and comes equipped with standard heated front seats, 18-inch alloy wheels and LED headlights. Standard tech includes a 7-inch digital instrument cluster and an 8-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity; wireless charging is available. Safety features for the base model include Safe Exit Assist and a Parking Support Brake system.


Upgrading to the Limited trim ($49,720) adds a larger 12.3-inch horizontal touchscreen and standard wireless charging. The Parking Support Brake system in the Limited also comes with rear cross-traffic alert. The Limited adds convenience features like a 10-way power driver’s seat, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel and a premium Harman Kardon audio system. It also rides on larger 20-inch aluminum wheels and features a roof spoiler and roof rails.


The range-topping Touring ($53,220) adds a digital rearview mirror, ventilated front seats and a panoramic moonroof with a power sunshade. The Touring trim also offers two-tone exterior paint options that range from $495 to $890.

The Extras

All trim levels of the 2023 Solterra will be eligible for a $7,500 federal tax credit for qualified buyers. Additionally, Subaru says it plans to offer Solterra shoppers a credit towards public charging or a Level 2 home charger installation. Details for the credits have not been finalized, however.

Versus the Competition

The Subaru Solterra’s starting price comes in higher than the related Toyota bZ4X, which starts at $43,215 for front-wheel drive and $45,295 for AWD. In addition to the new bZ4X, the Solterra will compete with the VW ID.4, which starts at $42,425 for rear-wheel drive and $46,105 for AWD, and the Ford Mustang Mach-E, which currently starts at $44,995 for RWD and $47,695 for AWD. However, Ford recently closed reservations for the 2022 Mach-E due to shortages and high demand.
