Subaru is going big and has announced plans to build and release four new models over the next five years. The biggest launch will be the much-anticipated sports coupe that’s in development in conjunction with Toyota. A new hybrid model is also expected.
Subaru has also revealed what it calls the ‘Motion-V plan’, which aims to generate global sales of 900,000 units per year by 2016. This will be a huge increase on the 633,000 sales the Japanese company has forecast for the current fiscal year.
Subaru’s new range will be lead out in the second quarter of 2012 with the global launch of the as-yet unnamed sports coupe, that’s nicknamed the Toyobaru. Toyota has released images and more details for its own ‘FT-86’ version of the vehicle, while Subaru has revealed very few details or photos of its concept.
The new hybrid model expected to join the range will come in 2013, with more details coming soon. The final two new models are unknown at this stage but there is speculation Subaru’s Impreza-based XV concept car may enter production. The final new model may be a new SUV to replace the Tribeca.
