Isuzu and Cum­mins to col­lab­o­rate

Owner Driver - - Tech Briefs -

ISUZU MO­TORS JA­PAN has signed a let­ter of in­tent with Cum­mins in the US to eval­u­ate col­lab­o­ra­tive op­por­tu­ni­ties in the de­liv­ery of glob­ally com­pet­i­tive prod­ucts.

Ac­cord­ing to the state­ment is­sued by Isuzu Mo­tors, the automotive in­dus­try is en­ter­ing a pe­riod of “a on­cein-a-cen­tury in­no­va­tion” and the di­ver­si­fi­ca­tion of power sources, in­clud­ing elec­tri­fi­ca­tion.

Isuzu says diesel en­gines re­main a core fo­cus for the com­pany in­clud­ing both for com­mer­cial ve­hi­cles and in­dus­trial ap­pli­ca­tions. How­ever it adds that it is com­mit­ted to ex­plor­ing a di­verse range of tech­nolo­gies in­clud­ing elec­tri­fi­ca­tion and en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly next gen­er­a­tion diesel power so­lu­tions.

Both com­pa­nies share a mu­tual in­ter­est in the de­vel­op­ment of fu­ture pow­er­train so­lu­tions and have agreed to ex­plore po­ten­tial op­por­tu­ni­ties over what is en­vi­sioned as a com­pre­hen­sive, long-term part­ner­ship in this area.

Through the col­lab­o­ra­tion, the global strength and know-how of both com­pa­nies is ex­pected to de­liver en­hanced com­pet­i­tive­ness and en­gi­neer­ing ef­fi­ciency gains and the op­por­tu­nity for greater mu­tual busi­ness growth.

“We look for­ward to the po­ten­tial ben­e­fits such a part­ner­ship rep­re­sents for Isuzu glob­ally and our cus­tomers here in Aus­tralia,” says Isuzu Aus­tralia di­rec­tor and CEO Phil Tay­lor.
