  • 91 consecutive months of yearly, month-over-month growth
  • Best June ever for Outback and Ascent
  • 64 consecutive months of more than 10,000 Outbacks sold
  • 71 consecutive months of more than 10,000 Foresters sold

 

Subaru of America, Inc. today reported 61,511 vehicle sales for June 2019, a 2.8 percent increase compared with June 2018, and the best June sales in the history of the company. Subaru also sold a record 339,525 vehicles in the first half of 2019, up 5.2 percent compared with the same period last year.

June marked the 64th consecutive month of 40,000+ vehicle sales for the automaker. Outback and Ascent sales were notably strong as each model achieved its best June ever. Outback posted an 8.9 percent increase, while Forester posted a 5.7 percent increase compared to June 2018. In addition, 7,014 Ascent SUVs were delivered in June, marking one year since the versatile family hauler arrived at Subaru retailers.

“We are humbled by the hard work of our retailers, employees and distribution partners this June. It is because of their tireless efforts that we can report our 91st month of yearly, month-over-month sales increases and set another half-year record,” said Thomas J. Doll, President and CEO of Subaru of America, Inc. “The Ascent has been a tremendous success for our brand. The 3-row SUV offers the utility today’s customers are seeking and fills a void that had been missing from our line-up for many years.”

“In June, we continued to experience healthy demand thanks in part to Subaru’s combination of value, safety, functionality, and reliability built into all of our vehicles,” said Jeff Walters, Senior President of Sales. “In an increasingly competitive marketplace, we are excited to continue delivering strong results and another month of sales increases.”
