Subaru of America Inc. has reported its first monthly sales increase since February — a 16 percent jump in September.
But year-long sales were down 17 percent, showing the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Subaru President and CEO Thomas Doll described September as “a standout month,” noting the sales figure was “our best-ever September and best month of 2020.”
“This has been a challenging year for us all, but the success we have seen this month gives me hope and excitement for a strong fourth quarter,” Doll said in a statement Thursday.
