Subaru to Invest $400 Million in Domestic Impreza Production!

While this may not be the most exciting news for many of you out there, this means that Subaru is expecting to increase the sales of its Impreza line-up to 500,000 units by the end of the decade. Not only does this mean increased revenue for the Lafayette, Indiana area, but it also means that the potent little Subie platforms will be more readily available because of their increase in numbers, and the following decrease in price.

"Currently, Subaru's Lafayette plant is responsible for building about 200,000 Legacy, Outback and Tribeca models each year (not including around 100,000 Toyota Camry
sedans), but Subaru-specific output will be increased to 300,000 units, requiring an additional 900 new hires as well. Although a previous report suggested the Forester and Impreza would be moving Stateside, this AN article only mentions the hatchback and sedan versions of the Impreza being added to Lafayette – and no mention of the closely related XV Crosstrek"
