Information about Isuzu

Isuzu Motors Ltd., founded in 1916 as Tokyo Ishikawajima Shipbuilding and Engineering Co., Ltd., embarked on its journey into the automotive world through a partnership aimed at building vehicles. By 1918, the company was collaborating with the UK’s Wolseley Motors Limited, launching its first locally produced car, a Wolseley model, in 1919. This initial venture set the foundation for Isuzu’s commitment to innovation and quality.

The company underwent several transformations, adopting the Isuzu name in 1949, inspired by the Isuzu River. Isuzu has been synonymous with durable and reliable commercial vehicles and is a leading producer of diesel engines, which form the core of its product offerings.

Today, Isuzu continues to thrive on a global scale, focusing primarily on commercial vehicles and diesel engines. Despite ceasing the production of passenger cars in 2002, Isuzu’s influence in the commercial sector remains strong, with extensive operations worldwide, including significant markets in Asia and a growing presence in North America and other regions. The company’s current success is underpinned by its steadfast dedication to the commercial and diesel engine sectors, making significant strides in technology and sustainability to meet modern demands.
