LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Production has started on two new vehicle models at Subaru's Indiana factory.

The new 2020 Subaru Outback SUV and Legacy sedan models rolled off the assembly line during a ceremony at the Subaru Indiana Automotive factory in Lafayette.

Factory senior vice president Scott Brand says Monday's ceremony was the culmination of two years of work on the new models.

The Lafayette factory now has about 5,700 workers and in April produced its 4 millionth vehicle since opening in 1989. The factory started building the Ascent SUV last year and also makes the Impreza car.

Subaru officials expect the factory to produce about 370,000 vehicles this year.
