Subaru showed the first video of its first EV, the 4 × 4 Solterra crossover, essentially confirming that it is a slightly edited version of Toyota's upcoming bZ4X EV, according to Autoblog. Both electric cars are the result of a partnership between Toyota and Subaru in the e-TNGA platform designed for multiple EVs, which was first announced in 2019.
The design elements shown in the video teaser, especially the strange dual roof spoiler, are similar to those of Toyota's upcoming bZ4X ("bZ" means "beyond zero"). The side profile on a longer shot also looks identical, making us wonder why Subaru does not fully disclose it to end it.
It also showed a dim image of the interior, with the central element being a giant screen placed in the middle. Again, this looks very similar to what Toyota showed us with its own EV crossover, although the Autoblog pointed out that Subaru seems to have some extra features under the knob. Another notable difference is the reinforced Subaru seats that could allow for more sporty 4 × 4 activities.
Other key details, such as the price and capacity of the battery, have not yet been announced. However, the price could range from $ 30,000 to $ 40,000. Like her car Toyota, is set to reach the US and other markets next summer.
