JAPAN: US sales lead Subaru production charge

Fuji Heavy Industries expects to hit a domestic production record of more than 620,000 Subaru vehicles in fiscal 2013, led by exports of SUVs to the US.
It plans to produce around 310,000 vehicles in Japan in the first six months of FY2013 and has seen sales in the US rise almost 25% year on year in January-June this year to a record 204,597 units, led by brisk sales of the Forester.
