Subaru Electric Vehicle Guide

Subaru Electric Vehicle Guide

Shopping for an electric vehicle that thrives both in nature and on tight city streets may bring you face-to-face with our Subaru electric vehicle. The Subaru Solterra is, at this time, the only electric SUV in the Subaru lineup. However, our Quantrell Subaru team will happily keep you updated on new EV releases. In the meantime, let's dive into why EVs are taking the automotive world by storm.

Electric Vehicle Advantages

Choosing an electric vehicle as your next purchase can benefit you in many ways. For one, electric vehicles don't have an engine, which means you can now cut gas costs from your budget. Your vehicle also won't require oil changes since it doesn't have an engine, which means reduced service center trips and expenses.

You'll also likely have better performance. Many all-electric vehicles get more horsepower than their gasoline-only counterparts. Plus, driving an EV can lower your emissions output.

Learn About Getting an Electric Vehicle Tax Credit

Learn About Getting an Electric Vehicle Tax Credit

Some all-electric vehicles are eligible for a federal tax credit. Additionally, many states have credits or incentives when you purchase an all-electric model. However, these rules are constantly updated. As of this time, Subaru Solterra owners do not qualify for the $7,500 federal tax credit. However, when you lease this vehicle through our finance center, you can qualify for an equivalent incentive.1 We would be happy to discuss this benefit with you in person.

While on our lot, also ask about our new vehicle specials, which are another way to help you save.

Electric Vehicle Charging

Electric Vehicle Charging

Charging your electric vehicle is necessary but, thankfully, quite simple. Most electric vehicles, like the new Subaru Solterra SUV, simply need to be plugged in to replenish the battery. The new Subaru electric vehicle charges fully on a 6.6 kW charger in about 11 hours.3 From the moment the low charge light comes on, the model will take approximately 9.5 hours.3 These figures may sound like a long time, but if you plug the vehicle in overnight, you'll be ready to go the distance by morning.

Keep in mind that this vehicle has a range of over 200 miles when most people drive less than 50 miles a day. If you need a quicker charge, you can always rely on DC fast-charging stations, which can get your battery from 10% to 80% in approximately 35 minutes.3
