Subaru has been absent from the electric future. Electric vehicles have been a popular topic with the Japanese. Los Angeles Auto Show 2021 saw the debut of the new Subaru Solterra. The entire process of development was closely managed by Toyota by the Japanese. The model they created is called BZ4X. Tokyo Auto Salon is where Subaru shows that electric futures may be sporty. This is basically a tuning expo.

The Subaru STI E-RA Concept was revealed at the local car fair. This is the start of an “electric age”, for the performance brand. Subaru STI E-RA Concept is an entirely flat electric sports car with a large front apron and a huge rear wing. A stunning diffuser covers the E-RA Concept. The Japanese have big plans. The racer will be able to set a new Nurburgring Record after final testing on Japanese tracks. Subaru’s sports team, STI has set the right standard at 400 seconds or 6 minutes 40 minutes. Official timings for the Ring indicate that this would be a new speed record for sports cars, surpassing Porsche 991 GT2 RS’s 6.43.300. Also, it is important to adhere to regulations. Subaru must compete in production cars to officially defeat Porsche. It would be unfair to compare electric and combustion race car models.

Engine & Specs

Japanese engineers have developed a remarkable package of technology. The total power of the Subaru STI E-RA Concept is 800 kW (1.08 hp). It is split between four electric motors located near the wheel. The setup’s basic concept is Torque vectoring. This is a highly efficient way to distribute driving power to each of the wheels. Each motor can be used independently. All factors are considered, including vehicle speed, steering angle, and wheel speed. Yamaha Motors added a new gearbox that improves power distribution to its models. The Subaru STI E-RA Concept houses the 60 kWh battery. It is not yet known where it is located. Subaru can’t confirm whether the E-RA Concept was made into a production model. Japanese officials claim, however, that the E-drive RA’s design conforms to the FIA standards for the upcoming electric racing series Electric GT, which will start in 2023.

What happens if there’s a production version? According to reports, the civil Subaru E-RA could serve as a technical counterpart to an electric Toyota MR-2. Suzuki and Daihatsu are also considering this. It is unlikely that Subaru will be included in the mix. Daihatsu, Suzuki and Toyota do not have the technical details for an electric MR-2 substitute. The ETNGA platform is not likely to be used in the construction of the electric two-seater. This platform is also used to build the Subaru Solterra, BZ4X and other vehicles. Both the Subaru STI E-RA Concept as well as the Toyota athlete are too flat. Subaru wants to emphasize, above all, the fact that the ERA concept was used to determine the times. Fans want an electric racecar that’s fast. Four electric motors are located close to the wheel and form the basis of the torque vectoring design. This design also illustrates how dynamically all-wheel drives could be in the future.

2022 Subaru STI E-RA Concept Future

Subaru must however immediately introduce new models in order to stay ahead of the electric future. It is costly and time-consuming to develop new models, which is why it is hard to finance, particularly in the sports industry. The only way to solve this problem is to rely on platforms and technologies created through collaborations. Toyota is now connected, and the portfolio of this large corporation offers many starting points. Toyota could also create more numbers together with another partner through the technology exchange.
