Another successful year for Isuzu trucks

In a report by the Truck Manufacturers Association Inc. (TMA) and the Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines, Inc. (CAMPI), IPC managed to sell 4,427 trucks last year, accounting for 45.5-percent of the market share. Here is the list of the sales contributions of each truck category:

  • Category III Light-Duty Trucks – 2,745 units
  • Category IV Medium-Duty Trucks – 1,397 units
  • Category V Heavy-Duty Trucks – 285 units

Part of the company’s impressive sales performance is its efforts to innovate the truck lineup. Last year, the Isuzu N-Series Smoother was introduced which offers an industry-first Automated Manual Transmission (AMT). This type of transmission brings the best out of manual and automatic gearboxes.

“As a leader, we continue to innovate as we launched our new N-Series Smoother AMT trucks late last year. Currently, this is the first light-duty truck in the market with an automated manual transmission, and we are confident that this new innovating truck will have the similar success as other models in our lineup,” said IPC President Hajime Koso.
