15000 units less

Ascent plant production resumes

Production at Subaru’s only U.S. plant, which builds the Impreza and Legacy passenger cars as well as the Ascent and Outback crossovers, will resume May 3.


The crimped supply comes as Subaru struggles with ultra-tight 24-day inventories in the U.S. Subaru of America’s sales were up 23 percent to 160,426 vehicles in the first quarter.

On Friday, my local dealer had about 30 vehicles on their lot. That's about 40-50 less than when we went in Aug 2020 to look for a new car for my daughter (she got an Impreza, they had 4 on the lot, more Crosstreks). Last year in August they said they were waiting for the new shipment of 2021's. Its May this year and they have less cars.

Hopefully this means my Ascent is being built, its due in June according to our dealership. My main worry was for all the workers, if they'd get paid during that shut down, as I'd expect any responsible company would.

Subaru inventory down to 5 day stock for trucks which is the Crosstrek to Ascents.

This is a about a 30% drop month to month.
