State and local leaders are praising Subaru's plans for a $400 million expansion of an Indiana factory that is expected to add 900 workers.

Gov. Mike Pence joined Subaru executives for an announcement ceremony Wednesday at the Lafayette factory. Subaru says it will double capacity at one of factory's two assembly lines and start building the Impreza small car there in 2016.

Pence says he's proud that Subaru picked the Lafayette factory for the expansion.

Lafayette Mayor Tony Roswarski says the factory that opened in 1989 has far exceeded expectations. He says he's pleased with Subaru's continued confidence in the city.

The factory now has about 3,600 employees.
