Japan’s Subaru Corp has unveiled its first all-electric vehicle (EV), the Solterra, the result of a two-year joint development project.

Reuters reports that the sports utility vehicle (SUV) launch comes amid accelerating demand for EVs as nations around the world tighten environmental regulations to cut carbon emissions.

Solterra has a cruising range of 530 km (329 miles), while the all-wheel-drive version can drive 460 km on a single charge, Subaru said in a statement.
