Florida and Indiana may be over 1,000 miles away from one another, but soon they will be more connected than ever before. That’s because Subaru will be upping production at its Indiana plant to put out 200,000 units each year by the middle of 2014.
The company has also upped its sales target in the United States – its largest market – to 324,4000 vehicles in the current fiscal year, which ends March 31, 2013, and 380,000 units a year by fiscal year 2016. Subaru has likewise planned for an increase in North American sales to about 410,000 units by the March 31st ending of fiscal year 2016.
These production plans follow the announcement that Subaru will not be setting up a local joint venture with Chery Automobile Co. in China. Currently, the Indiana plant churns out about 170,000 vehicles each year, which means the plant is looking at an increase in production of about 30,000 vehicles each year. In the first quarter of this year alone, the plant manufactured 67,937 vehicles, which will land it at around 184,000 at the end of this year.
