Revealed on Thursday, the 2024 Subaru Solterra electric SUV is back for its sophomore year with faster charging times, an upgraded battery conditioning system, and a novel low-speed hands-free driving feature. The pricing remains stable at $46,340, inclusive of a $120 rise in the destination fee now at $1,345.

Unlike its 2024 counterpart, the Toyota bZ4X is marginally cheaper by approximately $2,000, but it differs in configuration with a front-wheel-drive setup powered by a single motor, while the Subaru boasts a standard dual-motor all-wheel-drive system producing 218 hp and 249 lb-ft of torque. With a 72.8-kWh battery, the Solterra projects an estimated range of 228 miles.

According to Subaru, the battery can now charge rapidly from 10% to 80% in just 35 minutes, down from the previous hour. The enhanced battery conditioning system enables swift charging even in sub-zero temperatures, and a fresh state-of-charge display now indicates the remaining battery percentage and approximated charge duration.

Subaru bolsters its array of driver-assist features with a new low-speed hands-free driving functionality for speeds up to 25 mph, alleviating the hassle of stop-and-go traffic. Additionally, automatic lane shifts with a simple turn signal flick, a driver attention monitor, front cross-traffic alerts, and a driver-attention monitor have been introduced. Standard safety features like automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitors, and active lane control are retained.

Introducing a new design for the steering wheel that incorporates regenerative-braking paddles and standard roof rails capable of supporting up to 700 pounds when stationary, enabling the mounting of a rooftop tent and accommodating a few individuals.

Starting at $46,340, the entry-level Premium trim encompasses heated front seats, a 7.0-inch digital instrument cluster, an 8.0-inch touchscreen, and wireless connections for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. For $49,840, the Limited variant upgrades to a 12.3-inch touchscreen, heated rear seats, and a surround-view camera system.

The pinnacle Touring model, priced at $53,340, introduces a panoramic roof, a rearview camera mirror, cooled front seats, and two-tone body selections.
