The History of Subaru

In 1970, the first Subaru model was initially introduced in Japan as the 1100 series. Two years later, Subaru of America, Inc. went public. Two years after Subaru went public, they launched the first four-wheel-drive wagon and the first four-wheel-drive passenger vehicle. At the time, there was no vehicle similar in the United States. The company jumped to sixth place in United States sales in 1976, as their sale numbers reached over $166.3M. After their 1976 yearly earnings were reported, thr United States Ski Team begin a partnership with Subaru and their groundbreaking four-wheel-drive station wagon was deemed as the team's "Official Car". By the end of 1979, the company's net profits and subsidiaries reached over $10M on $550M of sale. 

By the mid 80's the company had introduced Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission (ECVT), established the Subaru of America Foundation (SOAF), reached its 10th consecutive year of record-setting sales and earnings, and was ranked as the fourth highest in profitability of over 1,000 global companys by Forbes. In 1991, the iconic Subaru SVX was introduced and the Legacy station wagon was initially marketed as a right-hand-drive vehicle to transport United States rural letter carriers. The company celebrated its 25th anniversary in 1993 and the West Coast Port moved from Portland, OR to Vancouver, WA. One year later, the all-wheel-drive Legacy was rated number 1 in owner satisfaction by Consumer Reports. Shortly after being rated number 1, Subaru introduced the Outback Impreza Sport, Outback Limited, Forester Hybrid and the all-new Impreza 2.5RS 2-door coupe which eventually became the Subaru WRX STI. 

Throughout the 2000's, Subaru successfully manufactured the WRX, STI, Forester 2.5XT, and Legacy Spec B, all of which are considered to be future classics by numerous automotive enthusiasts. What is Subaru famous for you may ask? Along with pioneering all-wheel-drive vehicles in the United States, they're also known for utilizing their boxer engine design in vehicles rated above 1,500CC. In 2018, Subaru won the title for "Most Trusted Brand" from KBB. Their fourth consecutive win, it is safe to say the Subaru automobiles are not only safe and reliable, but also versatile, family-friendly, and fun to drive.
