Business Overview

Our Products Represent Our Commitment to Helping as Many Customers as Possible Lead More Fulfilling Lives

Automotive Business

Leveraging Original Technology to Deliver Cars that Realize “Enjoyment and Peace of Mind”

Since we released the SUBARU 360 in 1958, we have been contributing to the development of Japan’s automobile industry. We adopted a horizontally opposed engine for the SUBARU 1000, launched in 1966, and released the world’s first-ever 4-wheel drive passenger car in 1972. Since then we have produced unique cars equipped with original technology, including the establishment of a symmetrical power train featuring a horizontally opposed engine as the “Symmetrical AWD.” Moreover, we have developed the advanced driving support system EyeSight, a new generation transmission, the Lineartronic CVT, and a next generation platform, the Subaru Global Platform, among others. We continue to take on new challenges in pursuit of “Enjoyment and Peace of Mind.”

Brand Statement Through “Confidence in Motion,” Subaru aims to meet customer expectations for the freedom and fulfillment enabled by SUBARU’s uniquely satisfying driving experience.

Industrial Products Division

As we had announced in November 2016, we had decided to terminate our industrial products business in order to utilize management resources more effectively to enhance the competitiveness of our core automotive business. Manufacture and sale of general-purpose engines and generators ceased on September 30, 2017.

The Industrial Products Division manufactured and marketed general-purpose engines used in construction, industrial and agricultural machines, high-performance engines used in snowmobiles and off-road vehicles, and products such as generators and pumps. The general-purpose engine brand in color yellow known as the Robin brand had been in business for over 60 years since former Omiya Manufacturing Division (Omiya Fuji Kogyo then) started producing M6-type engine (540cc) in 1951. With high reputation as a reliable source of power, it had supported the infrastructure of various countries around the globe. There had been over 2,000 types of Subaru general-purpose engine, and they were sold in over 90 countries and welcomed as a brand that can be trusted in the world.

Manufacture and sale of some engines for installation in vehicles will cease as customer supply contracts expire. After-sales service will continue to be provided by our affiliate company, Industrial Products Co., Ltd.
