A little more than a month after teasing the automaker’s first-ever electric car, Subaru has now fully unveiled the Solterra SUV.

Designed and produced in partnership with Japanese compatriot Toyota, the new Solterra draws heavily from the bZ4X, sharing many of the same external features such as the entirety of its midsection. The front end is the most distinct, with a faux grille outline on top of a larger lower grille accompanied by two round fog lights, creating a more off-road and rugged aesthetic to reflect Subaru’s brand. The rear also gets a few adjustments, including a more distinct separation between the two taillights as well as two short red tails by the bottom reflecting the automaker’s traditional design language.

Performance-wise, the Solterra is also extremely similar to its Toyota counterpart, with either a front-wheel-drive option or an all-wheel-drive setup. The former will carry one motor pushing out 201 horsepower while the latter features a dual-motor configuration delivering 214 horsepower. There’s no specific information regarding which powertrains the United States will be receiving, but the industry expects to learn more during this week’s Los Angeles Auto Show, so interested buyers should be on the lookout for more updates to come.

Elsewhere in the automotive world, Vanarama has put together a rendering of what Apple’s EV could look like by following its patents.
