Subaru unveiled two electric vehicles at the Tokyo Motor Show, including its first all-electric racing car, the Subaru STI E-RA, which we reported yesterday.
The brand has also unveiled the Solterra STI, which, as the name suggests, is a sportier version of the upcoming Solterra crossover. Representatives of Subaru did not tell anything about what is hidden inside the car, showing the novelty so far only on the outside. The Solterra STI electric crossover received a spoiler, air intakes on the wings, as well as other design elements that indicate its sporting capabilities.
At the time of the announcement last October, it was reported that Subaru’s first electric vehicle, called the Solterra, would be released next summer, priced between $30,000 and $40,000.
These announcements confirm that the company is serious about electric vehicles and can produce powerful electric vehicles in addition to conventional versions. Now the main thing for the manufacturer is to learn the lessons learned in the creation of such concept cars and transfer their experience to conventional cars.
Subaru is late in entering the EV market compared to other players including VW, Mercedes and GM. The company will have to act very quickly if it wants to take its place in the new car market.
