SUBARU CANADA: BEST NOVEMBER SALES ON RECORD

Tue, 07/12/2010

Subaru Canada, Inc. (SCI) set a new November sales record and also surpassed its best annual sales record a full month before year end.

November sales of 2567 were up 15.9 percent over the same month last year.

The record-breaking result catapulted Subaru over the 25,000 sales mark.

Year-to-date sales are up 20.7 percent, fortifying Subaru Canada's position as the fastest growing Japanese manufacturer in Canada for 2010.

Strong sales of Forester and Outback contributed to the best November ever for both models: Forester sales rose by 32.6 per cent over the same month last year, also making this past month the best on record for the compact SUV.

Similarly, sales were up 27.5 per cent over last November for the 2011 Outback, which was recently named Auto123.com's Wagon of the Year for the second year in a row.

"Canadians have embraced our vehicle line-up because it offers a compelling blend of excitement, efficiency, safety, quality and reliability - in all seasons and under all road conditions," said Shiro Ohta, president and CEO of SCI.

"We remain committed to building vehicles that will resonate with drivers who value their time behind the wheel."
