Subaru is hoping for a fifth year in a row of record sales in the U.S. and part of its plan to meet the increasing demand is to expand production at its Indiana plant. Subaru is going to invest $400 million to expand capacity at the plant by a third and to add production of the Impreza.
Subaru will expand the second of two lines at the Indiana plant and hire around 900 new employees that will build the four and five-door versions of the Impreza starting in 2016. Right now the plant is capable of producing up to 200,000 Subaru vehicles a year, but with the new investment production capacity will grow to 300,000 vehicles. Today the factory has two lines, one that produces 200,000 Subarus (Outback, Legacy and Tribeca) and a second that builds up to 100,000 Toyota Camrys per year.
