Subaru to Invest Billions in EVs Including a New Dedicated Plant in Japan

Subaru will begin building EVs at its existing plants by mid-decade


  • The new facility should be online by 2027.

  • This plant will build all-Subaru EVs, unlike the Solterra which is part Toyota.


Subaru might be a little to the EV game, but they plan to catch up. Now that the Solterra is out, the Japanese automaker will begin to focus more on EVs in the coming years with a massive multibillion-dollar investment.

Unlike the Soterra, which was co-developed with Toyota and is assembled at the giant car company’s Motomachi assembly plant, Subaru will design and build its own EVs before long.

While dealerships previously showed little to no interest in EVs, Subaru retailers have had an about-face of late and are now asking for more of them. This has prompted Subaru to plan for the immediate future.

By 2025, Subaru’s Yajima plant in Japan should begin production of EVs mixed in with ICE vehicles according to Automotive News. Two short years later, a new EV dedicated plant will be built on the site of its current Oizumi plant.

These new EVs will be exported to various global markets including the US and Canada. At this moment, production numbers are unknown, and hints as to what these EVs will be like are non-existent.
