SUBARU STI E-RA CONCEPTIt is with this car that Subaru intends to reconnect with its sporty DNA
At the Tokyo Motor Show, Subaru unveiled not one, but several new models. The brand wants to be firmly sporty and impress the audience with its electric car of more than 1000 hp.
Subaru has been very successful in the automotive industry. But since the Japanese manufacturer officially withdrew from the WRC world championship in 2008, there are only individual Imprezas on the tracks. And if Subaru still offers models for the pleasure of driving abroad, the time has been, for several years, for the European economy.
An exciting new design
Subaru now shows that there is still a flame just waiting to be rekindled. At the Tokyo Motor Show, the Japanese not only presented STI’s new versions of several models, including the electric Solterra, but also surprised the audience with the STI E-RA concept, an electric car developing 1088 hp (800 kW), offered and four motors. distributed on each wheel.
A little information on driving performance
Each motor can be controlled independently, allowing fully variable all-wheel drive and variable torque vectoring, providing dynamic driving benefits. Electric power comes from a relatively small battery with a capacity of 60 kWh. We do not currently know the freedom of the racing car. The Japanese also did not share details about its driving performance. It is highly likely that the car will participate in the Electric GT championship, as it meets the technical requirements.
However, the name of the race car is confusing. Because RA is an acronym for Recording Attempt. Subaru also announced that the four-wheel drive will show its prowess next year at the North Loop of the Nürburgring. However, the Japanese are aiming for a lap speed of 6 minutes and 40 seconds, which is far from an electric car record. This is currently held by the Volkswagen ID.R, with a time of 6:05.33.
