April 2011 sales total was 24762, up 6.74% over April 2010 and the best April ever.
This is especially strong considering the factory shutdowns impacted the supply of Japanese built cars arriving at dealers, though the full effect of that won't really be noticed until May and afterwards as the supply drops.
The Outback was up by 23.11%. As gas prices go up and up, the 4 cylinder Outback is the still engine of Subaru's continuing success, as it has been since 1996
Impreza sales were up 20.44%. According to the press release, the WRX and STI sales more than doubled. This is attributed to buyers taking advantage of remaining inventory, since with the factory shutdown there are only a few, if any, 2011s left coming in and no word on changes for the 12s.
Suprisingly the Forester was down almost 12%.
April's top seller was the Outback with 9465 cars sold, up 23.11% over April 2010.
#2 was Forester with 6714 -11.97%,
#3 Impreza 4367 +15.04%,
#4 Legacy 3975 +3.22%,
#5 Tribeca 241 +2.12
YTD sales through April 2011 was 92,219, up 14.29% over 80,692 2010
