Did you know that the Japanese word “SUBARU” means “unite” or “gather together”? It is also a name for the Pleiades star cluster in the constellation Taurus, which has six visible stars and 250 bluish stars visible through a telescope. These visible stars are depicted in the logo of the Subaru.
Subaru is produced by Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd, which was formed by the merging of five Japanese companies in 1953. The first president of the company was Mr. Kenji Kita. He believed that Japanese automobiles should have Japanese names. He is the one who gave the beautiful Subaru name to the first 1954 prototype of the first passenger car.
