Subaru of America, Inc. witnessed a notable increase in vehicle sales during December 2022, with a reported 56,760 vehicle sales. This marks an 11 percent rise compared to December 2021, indicating a positive trend despite ongoing industry challenges.
The year 2022 ended with Subaru achieving a total of 556,581 vehicle sales. Although this represents a 4.7 percent decrease from the previous year, the results are largely influenced by the semiconductor shortage and broader supply chain disruptions affecting the automobile industry.
The Crosstrek emerged as the top-selling model for Subaru in 2022, recording its best sales year with 155,142 units sold. The Outback and Forester models followed with significant sales figures, while the Ascent saw a 6.2 percent increase in sales compared to 2021. The performance segment, including the WRX and BRZ models, also showed robust sales, with the BRZ experiencing a 44.2 percent increase from the previous year.
Jeff Walters, Senior Vice President of Sales, expressed optimism for 2023, citing a strong finish in 2022 and anticipation for upcoming vehicle launches, including the all-new Impreza.
