Demand For Legacy, Outback Fuels Greater Production
Subaru continues to be in high demand thanks to its freshly revamped lineup of vehicles. Due to this demand, Subaru is also planning to increase production of the Outback and the Legacy.
Both the Legacy and the Outback are assembled in Subaru’s Lafayette, Indiana. Currently, capacity for the plant is set at 100,000 vehicles per year, but Subaru plans on squeezing out another 140,000 per year to meet growing demand for both models. This will be done by either speeding up the pace of the assembly line, or by reducing the the number of Toyota Camry’s being built in that facility, as the plant currently has the capacity to make 100,000 units of the Camry as well.
This isn’t the first time in recent months that Subaru has had to alter production to meet rising demand. Demand is so high that production at the plant is more than double the plant’s output in 2009.
Subaru’s recent sales goals have been adjusted to represent about a six percent increase over the its 2009 sales.
