Spoiler Alert- the reviewer was underwhelmed. Other than a known name, I see nothing to recommend it over the Ocean (range, acceleration, looks, probably dynamics).

And range is just embarrassing. The 2017 Subaru EV has finally arrived... five years too late.

Yes, the Toyota/Subaru EV twins are mediocre at best.

Toyota bought a controlling interest in Subaru to prevent someone else from buying them. Then forced this mess on them. Tragedy really. Subaru would have been so much better off in a strategic partnership with Tesla or part of the Geely family or a number of other deals to get them the financial heft they needed to compete. Now on its way to becoming just another Toyota brand.

It's a shame, we have had Subarus in the past and they have a very loyal following. Subaru would be a perfect brand to go all EV. They could have something different than all the sloped CUV EVs out there; instead they just have a mediocre sloped CUV EV. It would have been a great outdoor/adventure EV brand. Another reason to hate Toyota.

Triplets. Don't forget about the Lexus RZ 450e.
