Furniture World News Desk on 5/14/2024

Isuzu North America Corporation is excited to announce the development of an all-new, zero-emission Isuzu class 6 & 7 truck utilizing an Accelera™ by Cummins powertrain for both the United States and Canada. This truck represents the first zero-emissions solution facilitated by the Isuzu Cummins Powertrain Partnership formed in May 2019. 

Powered by Accelera’s next generation lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery technology, this new Isuzu medium duty truck will support customers in achieving zero emissions while providing all the benefits associated with a low cab forward chassis. Current plans for the vehicle’s availability is slated for 2026.

This addition will further broaden Isuzu’s product line-up and powertrain offerings providing customers in the medium duty segment (class 6 & 7) a zero-emission option. “With the start of production of our Isuzu class 5 N-Series EV coming this summer and with the future addition of the Isuzu battery electric class 6 & 7 truck, we will be able to provide zero emission solutions across our product line-up. This will also improve the breadth of our overall offerings providing customers the ability to choose the product and propulsion system that best fits their needs,” stated Shaun Skinner, Executive Officer, Isuzu Motors Limited.
