Its been just two years since Isuzu Motors started operations from its Sri City plant and the Japanese manufacturer has already rolled out its 10,000th vehicle. The Isuzu D-Max V Cross is the landmark vehicle. The company had already sold more than 10,000 vehicles in India since they step foot in the country. Isuzu used to manufacture vehicles earlier out of Hindustan Motors’ facility in Chennai. This facility will now be utilised by Peugeot for starting its Indian operations next year. Isuzu currently sells the D-Max, MU-X and V-Cross in India.
The facility in Sri City also caters to the export market and Isuzu India sends its vehicles to Bhutan and Nepal too. At present, Isuzu India is ramping up for the introduction of the facelifted MU-X as well as the D-Max. Isuzu doesn’t have sedans or hatchbacks in its portfolio and it remains to be seen if the company will invest in an all-new platform and start manufacturing these as well. This year’s Rain Forest Challenge or RFC as it is popularly called will be sponsored by Isuzu. The event is a test of both man as well as metal.
