The plant came into operation in April 2016 to manufacture Isuzu D-max V-Cross, MU-X (7-seater), and Isuzu d-Max S-cab, and regular cab variants for the commercial segment. Isuzu Motors India reached cumulative sale of 10,000 units in March 2018. This includes vehicles manufactured at Hindustan Motors facility near Chennai until early 2016.
SriCity plant rolled out V-Cross as its first vehicle when the company began manufacturing operations in India, in April 2016. Now a little over two years, the company has rolled out their 10,000th car from the SriCity plant.
SriCity plant is a key manufacturing hub for the manufacturer, which specialises in pick-ups. In regards to a global footprint, Isuzu India exports vehicles to Nepal and Bhutan. In line with its global protocols, the company follows the ‘Isuzu Manufacturing Management’ philosophy to deliver quality vehicles.
Naohiro Yamaguchi, Managing Director, Isuzu Motors India, said, “The roll-out of the 10,000th vehicle from SriCity marks an important milestone in the journey of ISUZU in India. It is a testimony to show our commitment to India and the trust Indian customers have built on us and our products. It is just the beginning and we will continue to remain focussed on our core objectives of delivering value and quality through our products.”
