Subaru Car

Subaru is an automobile manufacturing division of Japanese Group of companies- Fuji Heavy Industries (FHI). Chikuhei Nakajima founded the initial FHI Company – under the name Aircraft Research Laboratory – in 1917. After the World War II, the company became Fugi Sangyo; then, in 1953, 5 of the companies held by that group merged into a new corporation – the present Fuji Heavy Industries, officially set up in July 1953. The new company’s creation was headed by Kenji Kita and the headquarters was placed in Ota, Gunma, Japan. Subaru is internationally known for their use of boxer engines in most of their vehicles which are above 1500cc that became standard equipment for mid-size and smaller cars. They also offer many turbocharged versions of their passenger cars, such as the Impreza WRX as their experiment in aerodynamics to give more speed and mileage.


Fuji Heavy Industries, the parent company of Subaru, is currently in a partial partnership with Toyota Motor Corporation. Subaru is the Japanese name for the Pleiades star cluster, which in turn inspires the Subaru logo and alludes to the six companies that merged to create FHI.

Subaru was first formed in the 1953 and then the first Subaru car was introduced in 1954. The company is known for its high powered engines and its performance capacity. The engines are also known as the boxer engines. The company designed and manufactured a couple of good vehicles including the 1500, the tiny 360, the Sambar, the 1000, the R-2, the Rex and the Leone, the BRAT, Alcyone, the Legacy, the Impreza, the Forester, the Tribeca, and the Exiga.

Fuji Heavy Industries, Inc. (FHI) also launched its Subaru Stella Plug-in electric vehicle. Modified versions of the Impreza WRX and WRX STi have been competing successfully in rallying; three great drivers have won World Rally Championship drivers' titles with the Subaru World Rally Team. Subaru claims to have implemented advanced research to develop policies which include recycling, reducing harmful emissions, educating their employees, and continuing their efforts have helped them in their environment protection initiatives. Starting in the 2007, all Subaru vehicles use the CAN technology wherein two CAN-buses are used on vehicles: a high-speed CAN running at 500 Kbps for powertrain communication, and a low-speed CAN running at 125 Kbps for body control functions and instrument panels.
