TopGear.com.ph Philippine Car News - Fuji Heavy Industries to build 100,000 BRZs, 86s annually

Production of the Subaru BRZ and Toyota 86 may have started at Fuji Heavy Industries' (FH)) plant in Gunma Prefecture in Japan just last week yet the transportation conglomerate has revealed it is planning to produce 100,000 units of the two cars annually to meet the demands of car buyers.

This revelation was made by FHI president Yasuyuki Yoshinaga during the launch of the cars' production as he showed a policy that seeks to bring the plant's production to 100,000 units annually combined for both the 86 and the BRZ, a report filed by Fuji Sankei Business Eye on the Yahoo! Japan page said.

Currently, FHI is producing 5,000 units of the two cars per month. But with 7,000 confirmed orders for the 86 and 2,500 for the BRZ since the cars officially went on sale in February, both Toyota and Subaru have already exceeded their monthly targets for their cars by seven and 5.6 times, respectively.
