Subaru Canada: Another monthly sales record

    Record-breaking May sales contribute to phenomenal sales growth in 2009

    MISSISSAUGA, ON, June 2 /CNW/ - Subaru Canada, Inc. (SCI) today announced
that it set a new record for May results. Sales of its lineup of symmetrical
full-time All-Wheel Drive vehicles reached 1,940 units, up 0.5 percent over
last May. Building on last year's record-breaking sales results, Subaru's
Canadian sales are continuing to grow faster than any other Japanese
manufacturer in 2009. In fact, the month of May marked the fourth consecutive
month of sales growth for SCI.
    May was also a record-breaking sales month for Impreza. Robust sales of
these affordable performance vehicles led to a 19.5 percent increase over last
May. Strong sales of the 2010 model year Forester also contributed to this
month's successful sales results. Although the new model just hit dealerships
this May, Forester sales were responsible for 36 percent of the company's
overall monthly sales.
    "We are delighted to see a strong consumer response to remaining 2009
model year vehicles, and positive consumer reaction to the new 2010 model year
Forester," said Katsuhiro Yokoyama, president and CEO of SCI. "More drivers
are becoming Subaru owners as they discover the outstanding combination of our
legendary symmetrical full-time All-Wheel Drive system and class-leading
safety standards - all in a lineup of vehicles that are also able to deliver
spirited performance."
