Isuzu Motors is also setting up their first car production plant in South India with an investment of INR 3000 crores. The company will be producing light commercial vehicles and SUVs from this plant which is slated to be fully operational by 2016. Over the next three years, the company is eyeing 100% localization and will not only serve domestic markets from the Thiruvallur plant but will also be shipping their products to overseas markets from a new plant coming up in Hyderabad in the near future. The company has signed an MOU with the Government of Andhra Pradesh earlier this year to set up an LCV unit in Sri City, Hyderabad.
