Subaru Temporarily Suspends BRZ and WRX Production

Subaru’s production stop is short and shouldn’t disrupt deliveries too much

  • The plant also assembles the WRX, Impreza, and others.

  • Parts supply issues are at fault.

  • The plant will be closed today and tomorrow.

Many automakers continue to deal with part shortages due to supply chain disruptions. Of late, assembly plant stoppages have become less commonplace however they are still occurring. Subaru has been forced to temporarily suspend its activities at some of its facilities.

Specifically, the plants in the Gunma Manufacturing facilities will see the following lines temporarily stopped: Main Plant and Yajima Plant, and the Engine and transmission Oizumi Plant.

The assembly line’s output shutdown will be postponed for only two days starting today and will continue into tomorrow. These plants are responsible for most of Subaru’s product production. Specifically, the Gunma Main Plat assembles the lovely Levorg, Impreza, XV (Crosstrek), WRX, and BRZ. The Yajima plant builds the Legacy, Ouback, Impreza, XV, and Forester.

It’s unknow how many vehicles will not be assembled over this 48-hour period however Subaru’s press release only mentions “inconveniences” which, to us means that delays will not be enormous.

The exact line reads as follows: “We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to our customers and all other stakeholders.”
