Isuzu Motors India Private Limited has introduced two new variants of its pick up truck, the D-Max. The first is the air-conditioned single cab Flat deck and the second is the Cab-Chassis variant. Isuzu earlier offered a factory fitted air-conditioner only on the Arched deck variant of the D-Max. Now, the company says that the air-conditioning system has been introduced in the single cab Flat deck variant so as to reduce driver fatigue in our tropical climate.
The Cab-Chassis variant will provide the possibility of customisation to potential customers. Isuzu says that this variant can be used for numerous applications in various industries such as FMCG, hardware, food and catering and more. The company also adds that owing to the D-Max's power and torque, the vehicle can also be used for cold chain services.

Speaking at the launch of the new variants, Naohiro Yamaguchi, managing director, Isuzu Motors India, said, "With the roll-out of these new Isuzu D-Max variants, we are offering our customers a comprehensive range of options to choose from, meeting specific needs and requirements of different businesses. Under the harsh heat and tiring conditions in India, modern customers look for comfort features that enhance productivity while reducing fatigue, even for their drivers. The D-Max with air-conditioning will be the perfect choice. On the other hand, the Cab-Chassis variant is a perfect partner that provides customers the flexibility to choose their load-body configuration and maximise value. This is an important development and an extension of our product offering in the pick-up segment, enabling customers to 'Go More, Do More and Get More'."
Isuzu plans to expand its dealer network in India and intends to open 60 outlets by 2015-2016.
|Chennai: The globally-renowned Isuzu D-MAX known for its durability, reliability and fuel efficiency will now be available in two new variants meeting specific requirements of the customers in the pick-up segment. Isuzu Motors India Private Limited, currently selling the Isuzu D-MAX in India has expanded its D-MAX range with Air-Conditioned and Cab-Chassis variants. The Isuzu D-MAX Single Cab Flat Deck will now be available with a factory built Air-Conditioned variant to offer the D-MAX customers more comfort and a fatigue-free driving experience. In a tropical country like India where temperatures soar, an air-conditioned vehicle helps reduce fatigue and increases productivity. The D-Max with air-conditioning will be a perfect partner for our customers. The Cab-Chassis variant will fulfil the needs of customers' operating vehicle applications across various businesses such as Food & Catering, Perishables, Hardware, FMCG, etc. Such customers will now have the flexibility to construct their own load-bodies suiting their business requirements. This variant will be available in the Isuzu D-MAX Single Cab model. Further the D-Max is the most suitable vehicle for Cold-Chain applications due to its higher power and other features. Again in India where temperatures are usually above 25 degrees in most places and most times of the year, the need for a highly efficient refrigerated pick-up gains significant importance. Efficiency improves performance and reduces wastage and on this the Isuzu D-Max scores over the rest with great advantage.
