When people first think of “Subaru” they often think of the high-quality cars we know and love as coming from Japan. However, Subaru does have production plants in the United States, as well.
Already, the Legacy and Outback, as well as a few other models, are made in their Lafayette, Indiana plant. But really awesome news came a few days ago when Subaru of America announced that, soon, the Subaru Impreza will also be made in the USA. This addition is a $400 million investment for Subaru, and will add nearly 1,000 US jobs to the Lafayette plant.
“The Subaru’s success is attributable to many, many factors, including a focus on designing vehicles for the North American market, excellent marketing and sales efforts, and, of course, the outstanding quality, safety and reliability that are built into every Subaru, particularly by our associates here at SIA,” said Subaru Vice President Tom Easterday.
This expansion of Lafayette will increase its annual production capacity by roughly 100,000 vehicles, to a total of approximately 400,000 vehicles.
