CAMDEN, N.J., Jan. 25, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Subaru of America, Inc. announced today pricing on the enhanced 2024 Subaru Solterra all-electric SUV with several new features to improve comfort, driver safety, and versatility – all without increasing the price over the previous year.
The 2024 Subaru Solterra is available in Premium, Limited, and Touring trim levels and has a starting price of $44,995 MSRP before applicable federal, state, or local tax credits. The 2024 Solterra will qualify for applicable federal tax credits of up to $7,500 for some owners.i
For 2024, the all-electric SUV’s upgrades include a redesigned steering wheel with regenerative braking force paddle switches, improved charging performance thanks to more efficient battery conditioning, and standard roof rails with a static load capacity rated up to 700 pounds – ideal for a rooftop tent – and a dynamic load capacity of up to 176 pounds. At the heart of every Solterra is Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system and Subaru StarDrive® Technology, which delivers smooth, linear output from dual electric motors placed on the front and rear axles that deliver 249 pound-feet of torque.
All Solterra models are equipped with Dual-Function X-MODE® with Snow/Dirt and Deep Snow/Mud modes with Grip Control and Downhill Assist Control for enhanced performance in low-grip and off-road conditions. Every Solterra includes 8.3 inches of ground clearance for genuine off-road capability – a Subaru hallmark and best in class among small electric SUVs – and standard Active Cornering Assist and Vehicle Stability Control for better on-road stability and handling.
The Solterra’s high-capacity lithium-ion battery pack includes plenty of usable daily range with improvements to its fast-charging capabilities. New for this year, the 2024 Solterra can replenish its battery from 10% to 80% in as little as 35 minutes, with a state of charge indicator displaying the estimated time to 80% or 100%. Thanks to an upgraded battery conditioning system, the 2024 Solterra can charge at temperatures below freezing significantly faster than its predecessor, up to 80 minutes faster in certain conditions. With thousands of available, accessible public charging stations, and DC fast-charging, charging the Solterra away from home is now quicker and easier. At home, the Solterra offers affordable Level 1 or Level 2 charging compatibility.
The 2024 Solterra debuts all-new Subaru EyeSight® advanced driver-assistance features not yet found on other Subaru vehicles. New for this year, the Solterra can travel in its lane at speeds up to 25 mph with only driver supervision, including stop-and-go traffic. The 2024 Solterra can also change lanes on command by activating a turn signal, and the addition of Front Cross Traffic Alert makes pulling into an intersection safer by alerting the driver of potential collisions. What’s more, Blind Spot Monitors, Rear Camera Detection with Pedestrian Warning, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control with Lane Tracing and Road Sign Assist, plus the newly added DriverFocus® Distraction Mitigation System all help to keep driver and passengers safe on the road.
In 2023, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety awarded the Subaru Solterra with its TOP SAFETY PICK+ designation, its highest honor, and the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration gave the Solterra a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score.
For added convenience, the Solterra is available with a 12.3-inch high-resolution touchscreen for infotainment, with wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility. The 2024 Solterra includes five USB charge points: one USB-A and two USB-C connections for front-seat occupants and two USB-C charge points for rear-seat riders.
