All-New Subaru Global Platform
Subaru parent company Fuji Heavy Industries, Ltd. (FHI) has unveiled an overview of the Subaru Global Platform, which is currently under development as the architecture to be used for all next-generation Subaru vehicles.
The Subaru Global Platform is part of the six initiatives to enhance the Subaru brand described in the company’s midterm management vision, “Prominence 2020,” announced in 2014. Together with the horizontally-opposed engines, Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD), and EyeSight that represent Subaru core technologies, the new platform will constitute the basic foundation of the next generation of Subaru vehicles.
Marking the launch of the new concept, FHI President Yasuyuki Yoshinaga says, “The Subaru Global Platform lifts Subaru automotive technology to new heights, and marks the next step in the evolution of 'Enjoyment and Peace of Mind,' the value that Subaru offers to its customers. This new platform represents the culmination of the know-how we have developed over many years, and we are confident that it will allow us to produce vehicles that live up to our proud traditions and meet the high expectations customers have of Subaru. We continue to work on designing evermore attractive vehicles that offer the customer both enjoyment and peace of mind.”
