- Automotive Business
Our automotive section is known as the Subaru brand. Since we released the Subaru 360 in 1958, Subaru has been consistently aiming at producing vehicles that offer high safety in all road conditions, excellent driving performance, and intelligent packaging. This concept is applied to each and every Subaru vehicles. And from keeping this concept on mind, Subaru’s symmetrical All Wheel Drive (AWD) was developed. Since the Horizontally-Opposed Engine (SUBARU BOXER), that is compact and has a lower center of gravity, is established as its core unit, the power train of AWD shows perfect symmetrical on both the left and right sides. Subaru is convinced that these technologies enable owners to control their vehicles easily with confidence —this situation is also Subaru’s ideal one—and to keep reliable driving performance in any weather and road conditions. Not only the active safety (the performance of driving safety) measure of Subaru’s vehicles but also the passive safety (the performance of crash safety) measure and the pre-collision safety (the performance of prevention safety) measure in case of an accident have been emphasized side by side. Subaru pursues the vehicle that anyone can drive in safe and comfort, and in
that principle, the EyeSight (ver.2), Subaru’s driving support system that avoids collision or reduces collision damages, has been fitted on the Legacy from 2010. Moreover, Subaru developed the Lineatronic—an efficient and gearless Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), adopting a steal chain-belt—in which both driving and environment performance are balanced, and released the Plug-in Stella electric vehicle (EV). These prove how positively Subaru has researched and developed technologies that considers environment. Subaru’s goal is that “by owing a vehicle, the owner’s life changes to a more affluent, more satisfying, and more active one.” Such vehicle always brings a smile to your face, and Subaru always aspires to share smiles with you.

- Industrial Products Company
At the Saitama Plant, in Kitamoto city, Saitama, the Industrial Products Company has developed and manufactured the general-purpose engines mounted on construction equipments and industrial machineries, as well the high performance engines for snowmobiles and ATVs (All-Terrain Vehicle). It also built engine-driven generators, floodlight units, and water pumps. Since the M6 engine was introduced in 1951, the Robin engine, painted yellow (Robin’s corporate color) has been widely used and appraised around the world as a tough power resource that can be used for many purposes in countless circumstances. The engine is currently available in over 2,000 different models, exposed to over 90 countries, and is unanimously regarded as a highly reliable product. In 2001, following stricter emission controls, the EX series engine was introduced. In Europe especially, the EX engine got so much popularity that a lot of general products-including generators and high-pressure washers-are now equipped with Robin’s EX engine. In addition, maintaining the traditional reliability, the company has aimed at producing engines whose convenience coexists with its environment performance. This idea is embodied in the EX40 general-purpose engine, which was introduced in 2008, and the EH72FI next generation general-purpose engine, which is equipped with electronic fuel injection system and was introduced in 2009. Recently, the business area of the company has been expanded more further. For example, for everyone to get to experience motorsports readily, the KX21 engine for sports karts was introduced in 2008. Thus, the Industrial Products Company offers various motive powers that make your daily life more convenient, richer, more fun, and strives to research and develop the products in harmony with the environment.
