Subaru is opening a new chapter in the US with the market launch of the all-electric Solterra model (a cousin of the Toyota bZ4X).
In November the company delivered the first 94 Subaru Solterra to customers and those are the first ever all-electric cars for the Japanese brand in the US.
It will be really interesting to see whether the Solterra will reach a noticeable sales volume or not. Last month, the company sold a total of 50,138 cars (up 52% year-over-year), so the Solterra accounts for just under 0.2% of the total volume.
The Toyota bZ4X noted 232 sales in Q2, but due to the unfortunate recall, 0 were sold in Q3. We will pay close attention to the results of those two models (Toyota reports sales quarterly), as they are basically one and the same vehicle with very small differences.
