HISTORY

On March 3, 1958, a passenger car with a distinctive individuality was released: the Subaru 360. At the time, Japanese automobile manufacturers were working on developing small "people's" cars as advocated by the Japanese government. With its roots in aircraft manufacturing, Subaru took up the challenge of building a small, affordable car that could perform well, and the four-passenger, four-wheel Subaru 360 minicar became a milestone in the history of Japan's automobile industry. Dubbed the Ladybird due to its distinct shape, the Subaru 360 enjoyed tremendous popularity for more than a decade before finally ceasing production in May 1970.
