  • Best November ever for Outback, Crosstrek, Forester and Legacy
  • Best month ever for Outback
  • 33 consecutive months of more than 10,000 Outbacks sold
  • 40 consecutive months of more than 10,000 Foresters sold

Cherry Hill, N.J. -  Subaru of America, Inc. today reported 51,308 vehicle sales for November 2016, an 11.4 percent increase over November 2015 sales of 46,070 vehicles. The company also reported year-to-date sales of 551,955 vehicles, a 4.9 percent gain over the same period in 2015.

November marked the 33rd consecutive month of 40,000+ vehicle sales for the company. Outback, Crosstrek, Forester and Legacy sales were notably strong as each carline achieved its best November ever.

“November was the 60th consecutive month of yearly month-over-month sales increases, the longest streak of any automaker in the U.S.” said Thomas J.

“Coming off the recent 2017 ALG Residual Value Awards, retailer traffic remains strong and we continue to attract new customers to Subaru at a record rate,” said Jeff Walters, senior vice president of sales, Subaru of America, Inc. “We're pleased that all of our carlines are receiving recognition and contributing to our ongoing success,” Walters concluded.
 
In November, Subaru was honored with the “Best Overall Mainstream Brand” Residual Value Award from ALG, the analytics division of TrueCar Inc. and the industry benchmark for projecting future vehicle values and depreciation data.

The Annual ALG Residual Value Awards honor the vehicles and brands that are expected to retain the highest percentage of their original price after a conventional three-year period. Seven award wins this year up Subaru’s overall total to twenty-five ALG Residual Value awards won since 2010. Subaru was also named Best Mainstream Brand in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2015.

The nice thing about month over month sales growth is that it is not fabricated like it is with FCA.

But then again, Subaru has respect in the amrket, reliable vehicles, descent resale and residuals, and an existential understanding of who and what it is as a corporation....not things that can be said about FCA.

      Subaru has been on a roll in the U.S. with 79 months of steady month-over-month growth. But Subaru wants to spread that success to other markets and has a new five-year to try an achieve this.
      Today in Tokyo, Newly appointed Subaru President Tomomi Nakamura unveiled the plan known as STEP - speed, trust, engagement, and peace of mind.
      "The automotive industry is now in a tumultuous time. Subaru’s fast growth in recent years has come to highlight our challenges. The question is how we, as a small-scale company, will be able to survive in this big-changing area," said Nakamura.
      Subaru wants to increase global sales from the 1.1 million vehicles it expects to sell in the current fiscal year to 1.3 million vehicles in the fiscal year on March 31, 2026. To do this, Subaru is planning to launch a number of new products including a hybrid and a "global strategic SUV" in the early 2020s. Furthermore, Subaru will evolving their "Dynamic X Solid design language into a "bolder" expression" and "enhancing sporty models."
      On the technology front, Subaru is planning to offer Level 2 autonomous capability (i.e. Cadillac Super Cruise and Tesla's Autopilot) around 2020 and higher levels by 2024. It is also planning to offer some sort of connectivity in "80 percent of new vehicles in major markets" by 2022.
      STEP will also be focusing on regaining trust in Subaru's home market. Last year, Subaru admitted that it had uncertified workers carrying out tests on new cars for Japan for decades. Early this year, the scandal got worse as Subaru revealed that inspectors falsified fuel economy and emission data. It led Japan's transportation ministry to reprimand Subaru and 417,288 vehicles to be recalled in the country.
