Charging a Subaru EV

Owning a Subaru EV is all about freedom – the freedom from the impact of fossil fuels, the freedom to reach places only a Subaru go, and the freedom to charge how and where it’s most convenient for you. A Subaru EV can be a perfect fit for your life, no matter how you want to charge it.

Subaru EV Benefits

Saving money on gas and the environmental benefits of a zero-emissions vehicle are obvious, but there are other reasons why driving Subaru EV can be so rewarding. From tax credits to reduced maintenance costs to a more pleasant commute, buying a Subaru EV is a smart investment for the long road ahead.

Electric vehicles (EVs) have a battery instead of a gasoline tank and an electric motor instead of an internal combustion engine. 

Fuel is not required in EVs, so you can feel good about owning an environmentally friendly vehicle that does not emit pollutants. Plus with no need for fuel, you can save on the cost of gas and no longer need to worry about filling up at the gas station. EVs also offer instant torque for better performance, have lower maintenance costs, and are quieter as there are no engine vibrations.

The Subaru Solterra can be charged at your home using a Level 1 120V charger or a Level 2 240V charger. We recommend charging your battery every night, just like your smartphone, so you’re always ready to go anywhere with a full charge. A Level 1 charger is included with your Solterra or you can get a Level 2 240V charger professionally installed in your home for an even faster charge**.

**Time to charge overnight based on Level 2 charging speeds. Charge times can vary depending on many factors, including temperature, type of charging system, and condition of the vehicle and battery.

Since your Solterra can go over an estimated 220 miles on a full charge completed overnight, the need to charge while running errands should not be a common occurrence. Should you need to charge while on the go, you have access to over 46,000 public Level 2 or DC fast-charge stations across the United States. If you do need a charge away from home, your best bet is a DC fast charger with a CCS plug. The super-fast DC charger can charge up to 80% of your battery in about an hour.

New 2023 Subaru Solterra models leased through Subaru’s preferred lender are eligible for a $7,500 incentive that will be used to lower the lease payment.
