Subaru launches Ascent output at Lafayette plant
Subaru has started production of the new Ascent at the American plant in Lafayette, Indiana.
The crossover (which can accommodate up to eight people on board) is added to the factory assembly lines at the Impreza sedan and hatchback, whose production was transferred to Lafayette from Japan towards the end of 2016, as well as Legacy and Outback.
The new Ascent will debut in Subaru local dealers by the end of June with a base price of 32,970 dollars.
Thanks to Ascent's debut, the production rhythms in Lafayette are destined to grow to about 400 thousand units per year compared to 364 thousand in 2017.
