On June 6, 2019, Toyota Motor Corporation and Subaru Corporation disclosed that they have agreed to jointly develop a platform dedicated to battery electric vehicles (BEVs) for midsize and large passenger vehicles and to jointly develop a C-segment-class BEV SUV model for sale under each company's own brand.
By combining their respective strengths, such as Subaru's all-wheel-drive technologies and Toyota's vehicle electrification technologies, the two companies intend to take up the challenge of creating attractive products with appeal that only BEVs can offer. The platform will be developed in a way that will make it broadly applicable to multiple vehicle types, including C-segment-class and D-segment-class sedans and SUVs, as well as to efficient development of derivative vehicle models.
The automotive industry is in the midst of a once-in-a-century period of profound transformation. Starting with responses to the new CASE domains of car connectivity, autonomous or assisted driving, new mobility or car-sharing, and electrified powertrains and components, both Subaru and Toyota are required to conduct technological development with a sense of speed across a broader-than-ever spectrum of initiatives.
Ever since concluding an agreement on business collaboration in 2005, Toyota and Subaru have been deepening their cooperation in various fields, including development, production, and sales. As a first step in the above direction, building on their collaborative ties thus far deepened, the agreement announced represents a new area of collaboration that especially focuses on the urgent need to respond to CASE's "E" domain, or electrified powertrains and components.

On May 15, Subaru informed that the new Subaru Levorg offers estate car practicality with permanent symmetrical all-wheel drive confidence.
Refreshed for 2019, Levorg comes equipped with a 2.0L naturally aspirated petrol engine, refined exterior styling and a selection of interior upgrades including new safety technology.
Comfortable and capable around town and effortless on the motorway, Levorg’s new petrol engine is combined with Subaru’s Lineartronic CVT transmission and symmetrical all-wheel drive as standard.
This Family Tourer also benefits from a fine-tuned suspension and responsive handling to deliver improved ride comfort and sheer driving enjoyment.
EyeSight driver assistance includes adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking and lane departure warning. Blind spot monitoring and a reversing camera were also existing technologies and these are now complemented by a front view camera and smart rear-view mirror to improve visibility in areas that would ordinarily be obstructed from view.
Levorg will be available in six colours and will arrive in UK dealerships from July 2019.

May 14, 2019

Subaru is making a USD 4.2 million investment at its Lafayette, Indiana plant for a new technical training center to replace its current training center, built in 1989.
Construction of the 20,000-square-foot building, double the size of the current one, will be completed in October 2019.
The new training center will include classroom space, a computer lab, simulation rooms, and a 7,000-square-foot simulated production line floor.
The Lafayette plant currently employs 5,700 people.
Production of the three-row Ascent crossover, for which Subaru invested USD 140 million, began in 2018.
Subaru will add approximately 100 people to the plant for the production launch of the 2020 Legacy sedan and 2020 Outback crossover, scheduled for July.
