But despite using the same platform, Solterra is more expensive than its brother Toyota bZ4X. The Solterra will start at $44,995 in Premium trim before a $7,500 federal tax credit and a $1,225 destination fee.
This base model has an eight-inch infotainment system (with wireless CarPlay and Android Auto) as well as driver assistance such as a rear camera, blind spot monitoring and exit warning.
For the Limited tier version the price starts at $48,495. This model features a 12.3-inch infotainment system, 360-degree camera view, wireless smartphone charging dock, parking assist, rear traffic alert and smartphone-based digital lock. You can also expect more conventional upgrades like the Harman Kardon audio system, LED fog lamps and power rear doors.
The Touring variant starts at $51,995 with features such as digital rearview mirrors with HomeLink support, panoramic moonroof, footwell lighting, and ventilated front seats.
Unlike the Toyota bZ4X, the Solterra comes only with all-wheel drive. So that it has better off-road capabilities, of course, affects the price.
The Solterra comes with dual motors with 215HP, 249lb/ft of torque and a range of up to 228 miles. Solterra has an “X-Mode” feature to adjust the vehicle’s speed on dirt and snow roads. While the grip and downhill control features help you maintain a stable track. Solterra also offers charging EVgo credits or cash for Level 2 home chargers.
The prices are quite high not what some would expect. That’s not far off the VW all-wheel ID.4 Pro ($44,440) or the Ford Mustang Mach-E Select ($43,895).
