Subaru announced its intentions to launch a dedicated EV factory to serve the North American market. The company outlined its intentions to construct this factory in Japan in the mid-to-late 2020s. The automaker stated that by 2025 it will construct both electric and gas-powered vehicles, and by 2027 it will construct entirely electric vehicles at this factory.
Subaru did not release any details surrounding the EV models that will be produced for the North American market, and whether these will be existing models or entirely new iterations. However, due to the nature of the EV commitment being nearly half a decade away, it is likely that the automaker will launch a new line of vehicles to accompany its foray into the North American EV market.
