Automaker’s only plant outside of Japan began production in 1989
Subaru of Indiana Automotive (SIA) has produced its 4 millionth Subaru vehicle. The silver 2019 Subaru Outback rolled off the assembly line on Monday at 10:51 p.m. EDT.
“This is an incredible milestone for our associates and our company,” said Scott Brand, senior vice president at SIA. “We’ve come a long way since building our first Subaru vehicle more than 30 years ago.”
SIA is Subaru’s only manufacturing facility outside of Japan and currently makes the Ascent, Impreza, Legacy and Outback models for North America. Since beginning production in 1989, the plant has increased its annual output of vehicles from 67,000 to approximately 370,000.
“Our 5,700 associates are directly responsible for the quality that Subaru customers have come to expect,” said Brand. “Their commitment continues to drive our success.”
SIA expects to begin production of the all-new 2020 Legacy and the all-new 2020 Outback at the end of July.
