July 1, 2021 GMT

CAMDEN, N.J., July 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Second-quarter sales increase 20 percent over 2020

Subaru of America, Inc. today reported 42,877 vehicle sales for June 2021, a 20.5 percent decrease compared to June 2020 due to reduced inventory resulting from the global microchip shortage. The automaker also reported second-quarter sales of 321,250, a 20.3 percent gain compared with the same period in 2020.

“Given our inventory at this time, we were pleased with the June sales results our nimble retailers worked hard to deliver, and we thank them for their efforts,” said Thomas J. Doll, President and CEO, Subaru of America, Inc. “This past month we were also proud to release our Corporate Impact Report, which showcases the many ways Subaru is More Than a Car Company not only for our Subaru owners, but for our communities nationwide.”

For the first half of the year, Forester posted an 11.8 percent increase, while both Outback and Crosstrek carlines posted an increase of 40 percent compared to Q2 2020.

“While the global microchip shortage affecting the automotive industry continues to pose challenges, our retailer network went above and beyond to deliver the very best for our customers in June,” said Jeff Walters, Senior Vice President of Sales. “We are especially pleased to offer competitive pricing on two 2022 models with an extensive roster of amenities – the Ascent, including the new Onyx Edition, and the Impreza – giving car buyers another reason to choose Subaru.”
