< Production >

Domestic production decreased year-on-year, as production of the Impreza for North America was moved from Japan to the U.S. and the Levorg and WRX models were at their model change timing.
Overseas production significantly increased year-on-year, due to increased production capacity as well as the all-new Impreza’s start of production in November 2016.

< Sales in Japan >

Passenger vehicle sales increased year-on-year, led by strong demand for the all-new Impreza launched in October 2016 and the all-new Subaru XV launched in May this year.
Mini vehicle sales increased year-on-year led by the all-new Chiffon which was launched in December 2016.

< Exports >

Exports from Japan decreased year-on-year, as production of the Impreza for North America was moved from Japan to the U.S. and the Levorg and WRX models were at their model change timing.
