< Production >
– Domestic production decreased year-on-year due to fewer working days.
(Two days less than January last year)
– Overseas production significantly increased year-on-year, due to increased production capacity as well as the all-new Impreza’s start of production in November 2016.
< Sales in Japan >
– Passenger vehicle sales increased year-on-year led by the all-new Impreza launched in October 2016.
– Mini vehicle sales slightly decreased year-on-year, as a decline in the Stella and Pleo sales offset sales of the all-new Chiffon launched in December 2016.
< Exports >
– Exports from Japan rose year-on-year led by increased shipments to North America and Australia.
