Subaru has established a roadmap toward 2050 with the goal of contributing to a carbon-neutral society, and is accelerating initiatives such as electrification.

Subaru Corporation and Aisin Corporation have agreed to jointly develop and share production of eAxles for use in battery electric vehicles (BEVs) that Subaru will start producing from the latter half of the 2020s, by combining their knowledge and expertise in vehicle and transmission development.

This joint development, based on the concept of high efficiency, light weight, and compactness, aims to achieve various performance aspects that take into account the environments in which customers will use their vehicles, the company said in a media release.

In addition, the two companies will study optimal parts suppliers and production schemes, taking into consideration the maintenance and development of the existing supply chain, which is undergoing significant changes in the business environment due to the advancement of vehicle electrification.

Subaru has established a roadmap toward 2050 with the goal of contributing to a carbon-neutral society, and is accelerating initiatives such as electrification. Aisin aims to realize a carbon-neutral society by advancing initiatives in terms of “production” and “products”, and is accelerating the development of eAxle, which is as the top priority product, by pursuing higher efficiency and downsizing, the release said.

Subaru and Aisin will continue to pursue opportunities for collaboration in various areas, and will contribute to the further development of an electrified society by providing high-value-added products and technologies that are unique to the two companies, the release added.
