Fuji CEO Yasuyuki Yoshinaga: As Subaru’s sales skyrocket, its parent races to meet demand

Subaru is on a tear. It is poised to notch its seventh-straight year of record sales in North America, reaching the company’s sales target five years ahead of schedule.

Meanwhile, parent company Fuji Heavy Industries forecasts another fiscal year of across-the-board records: for vehicle sales, revenue, operating profit and net income. The biggest challenge facing CEO Yasuyuki Yoshinaga, 61, is making enough cars to meet demand. Yoshinaga spoke through an interpreter with Asia Editor Hans Greimel this month at Fuji Heavy’s global headquarters here about expanding capacity to meet sales growth, autonomous driving and new vehicles under development.
