Subaru Introduces 1, 073HP Electric Race Car

Subaru Corporation and its motorsport subsidiary, Subaru Tecnica International Inc. (STI) introduced two concepts EVs,  the STI E-RA CONCEPT and SOLTERRA STI CONCEPT, at the Tokyo Auto Salon 2022 held from January 14 to 16 at the Makuhari Messe convention center. 

The SOLTERRA STI CONCEPT is based on the Solterra all-electric SUV which made its world debut in November 2021. Featuring a roof spoiler, cherry-red under spoilers, and other special parts on its exterior, the model inspires Subaru’s superior driving dynamics.

The STI E-RA Concept hints at Subaru's upcoming track vehicle with 1,073HP of total power from its four Yamaha motors, extensive downforce and all-wheel drive mated to a "unique" torque vectoring system that maximizes grip and stability.

"It is a concept model of the STI E-RA electric race car being developed under STI’s near-future motorsport study project, the STI E-RA CHALLENGE PROJECT, launched with the aim of gathering experience with new technologies in the world of motorsports for the carbon-neutral era."

Subaru said it is confident that the E-RA can thrive on the track while the 60kWh battery is relatively small.

According to the company, "The SOLTERRA STI CONCEPT is based on the Solterra all-electric SUV which made its world debut in November 2021. Featuring a roof spoiler, cherry-red under spoilers, and other special parts on its exterior, the model inspires Subaru’s superior driving dynamics."

The company also plans to test the E-RA at Japanese racing circuits later in 2022.
