Subaru Hit With Production Stoppage In Japan


Subaru is temporarily halting all production at its automobile manufacturing facilities in Japan due to interruptions in the supply of parts.

The interruptions, brought on by the rise once more in COVID-19 cases at various parts suppliers has forced Subaru to halt production at its Gunma and Yajima assembly plants as well as its engine and transmission plant in Oizumi.

The stoppage, Subaru says, will last for around six days. This will cause some delay in the delivery of completed vehicles as well as accessories to customers not just in Japan, but globally as well.

A statement on Subaru’s website reads:
平素より、SUBARUにご関心をお寄せ頂き、誠にありがとうございます。

現在、世界的な規模で発生している半導体部品の不足、海外におけるコロナウイルス感染症拡大に伴うロックダウンなどの影響により、部品供給の遅延が発生しております。これにより、車両生産に遅れが生じており、ご注文頂いたSUBARU車に関して、お客様へのお届けにお時間を要しております。

また、一部のアクセサリー用品についても生産に遅れが生じているため、ご注文を一時停止させて頂く場合や、納車時点での取り付けが出来ず、一定期間お時間を頂く場合がございます。

お客様には、多大なるご迷惑をお掛けしますことを、心よりお詫び申し上げます。

一日も早く、お届けできますよう努めてまいりますので、ご理解賜りますようお願い申し上げます。

Thank you for your continued interest in SUBARU.

Currently, the supply of parts is delayed due to the shortage of semiconductor parts occurring on a global scale and the lockdown caused by the spread of coronavirus infections overseas. As a result, vehicle production has been delayed, and it takes time to deliver the SUBARU vehicle you ordered to the customer.

In addition, due to production delays in some accessories, we may suspend your order, or we may not be able to install it at the time of delivery, and it may take a certain period of time.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused to our customers.

We will endeavor to deliver it as soon as possible, and we appreciate your understanding.
