No Slowdown For Subaru EV Sales

Despite many reports about flat EV sales in 2024, Subaru managed to increase sales of the Solterra model. So far this year, the volume exceeded 4,000, which is 73% more than a year ago.

Subaru Solterra's share of the brand's total volume in May improved to a record 2.65%. It's a bridgehead that can potentially be gradually expanded.

We assume the better sales results are a mix of 2024 model year improvements and attractive lease deals, like $329 per month over 36 months with $369 due at signing, reported earlier this year.

For reference, in 2023, Subaru sold 8,872 Solterra (about 1.4% of Subaru's total sales). The cumulative result is almost 14,000.

If nothing changes, this year will be noticeably better than 2023 for the Subaru Solterra.

The Subaru Solterra has two direct cousins—the Toyota bZ4X and Lexus RZ—based on the Toyota e-TNGA platform (called e-Subaru Global Platform by Subaru). Their sales results are relatively similar, although reported only quarterly.

Here is a quick look at the Subaru Solterra pricing. The model has a 72.8-kilowatt-hour battery and its EPA Combined range is 222 or 227 miles depending on the version (the higher number is for the 18-inch wheel size).
