Japanese auto manufacturer Subaru, best known in Europe for its range of four-wheel drive cars and its motorsport success in rallying, has announced the launch of its first all-electric vehicle.

The Subaru Solterra, the name derived from the Latin words for ‘Sun’ and ‘Earth’ will be built on the e-Subaru Global Platform, developed in partnership with Toyota, the company’s biggest shareholder. The vehicle is designed to replicate Subarus’s renowned off-road and all-weather capability.

Toyota, the world’s largest automobile manufacturer, was initially slow to develop electric vehicles but now plans to have a line-up of 15 BEVs by 2025.

Technical specifications of the Subaru Solterra are expected to be announced shortly and it is anticipated the vehicle will have a range of 329 miles in a front-wheel-drive configuration and 285 miles in full all-wheel-drive mode.

The Subaru Solterra will be unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show on November 17 and is expected to go sale in 2022.

Last but no least, approval process for non-UK driving licenses is very smooth and…
