Kuala Lumpur, Monday. Isuzu Malaysia introduced a new range of Isuzu light-duty and medium-duty trucks aimed at enhancing the load handling capability and efficiency of business operators in the country.

The trucks introduced here today included the enhanced turbocharged Isuzu N-Series Road King Hi-Power and the all-new 6th Generation medium-duty Isuzu F-Series FVR that offer numerous class-leading features in the areas of safety, efficiency and comfort.

This mega mile-eating truck is expected to penetrate the long-haul market with all-improved features that not only make this one of the most fuel efficient and durable truck in the 18-ton segment, significant improvements to driver ergonomics ensures full satisfaction and approval from drivers who have to spend long hours at the wheel.

Speaking at the launch, CEO of Isuzu Malaysia Kimitoshi Kurokawa said that the new and improved Isuzu trucks will prove a boon to business operators as the performance and efficiency of these vehicles could significantly reduce the operating cost of customers’ businesses.

“As with all Isuzu vehicles, these new trucks feature an extraordinary balance between performance, efficiency and durability. Truck users will see greater savings in terms of running costs with these new models that feature high torque engines,” said Kurokawa.

The 6th-generation 700P FVR will now be available in two variants with different load-capabilities. They feature the latest cab and chassis design with improved ergonomics, rigidity and comfort, making it the ideal choice for long-range haulage. The new Isuzu F-Series FVR range joins the current FTR range that continues to appeal to the short-haul and medium-haul business owners.

The Isuzu N-Series truck range is now expanded with the introduction of the Road King Hi-Power NKR and NPR models. These Euro 2-compliant trucks offer significantly-improved performance, making them ideal for tackling challenging terrain and for improved load-carrying capability.

Since the introduction of Isuzu-branded trucks by Isuzu Malaysia at the end of 2010, the company has recorded a healthy demand for its vehicles with sales of 3,268 units in its first full year of sales, commanding a market share of 25% of the light-duty truck segment.

With the introduction of the new expanded Isuzu N-Series range and the new Isuzu F-Series FVR, Isuzu Malaysia expects to sell 6,350 units of Isuzu commercial vehicles this year, 45% of which will be made up of the versatile Isuzu N-Series trucks through its network of 30 outlets throughout the country.
