Subaru’s vehicle sales in the U.S.
With FY 2016 first quarter net sales of around 765.3 billion Japanese yen, Fuji Heavy Industries might not be on everyone’s radar when talking about cars, but its automobile manufacturing division, Subaru, has emerged as one of the fastest growing carmakers worldwide. Between January and May 2016, Subaru vehicle sales in the United States surged by 2.1 percent to reach around 233,000 units.
