Cherry Hill, N.J. -  Subaru of America, Inc. (SOA) has reported record sales of 513,693 vehicles for the 2014 calendar year. This is an increase of 21 percent over the previous record of 424,683 vehicles, which was set in 2013. This sixth consecutive record also represents the largest ever single-year increase in volume for the brand.

 

The company also reported sales for December 2014 of 49,923 vehicles, marking the best December ever for the company with an increase of 24 percent over December 2013.

 

All of the company’s current models contributed to its sales success in 2014; the current Impreza (four and five-door) is enjoying its best-ever generation and the Outback and the Forester mid-size CUV achieved nearly 300,000 units in 2014, combined. The new small CUV entrant, XV Crosstrek, also added over 70,000 sales to the year-end total, while the Legacy sedan is enjoying its best sales ever; more than doubling its year-over-year monthly sales since the launch of the all-new 2015 model. On the performance side, sales of the company’s sporty models, the WRX and STI, are at their highest levels ever following the debut of the all-new 2015 models.

      When Subaru launched their new modular global platform in the Impreza, they said the platform was designed to accept different powertrains such as hybrid and electric. According to a report from Autocar, Subaru's first electric model is just around the corner.
      Subaru's chief designer, Mamoru Ishii told the outlet that the electric vehicle would be a variant of one of their current models and will launch in 2020.
      “Subaru cars are designed to support people’s lifestyles, so it should not be a case of designing the car for the powertrain. If customers want change we’ll respond - our cars are about customers loving using them how they are designed - but we are not going to change our design focus just to highlight a new way of powering the car,” said Ishii.
      Ishii declined to say how far Subaru is in development of the EV, but sources tell Autocar that crash tests have started to determine if the battery location is safe.
      If we were to guess what model Subaru is using for their electric vehicle, the Impreza seems like a safe bet.
