Isuzu India has showcased the new D-MAX Reefer and Dry Box applications at the India Cold Chain Show, being held at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in Mumbai, between 12th-14th December, 2017. The company's world-renowned D-MAX pick-ups have been gaining phenomenal traction in India and has been addressing the key requirements of LCV customers in terms of performance, quality and reliability, thus maximizing their business returns. The new Reefer body (Fruehauf Mahajak) on the D-MAX is made using the ‘sandwich’ process with light-weight aluminum and hi-quality extruded polystyrene (XPS) material.
Isuzu D-MAX Regular Cab, a single cabin pickup, is a tough, powerful and reliable workhorse that is globally known for its performance and long life durability. The Regular Cab is available in both flat deck and cab-chassis variant. The cab-chassis variant is an ideal vehicle to build reefer containers for cold-chain transportation, enabling efficient movement of dairy products, perishable goods, pharma products etc. The cab-chassis variant can also be customized for special purpose applications in the logistics and allied business requirements. Designed to meet the growing demand for modern and efficient cold-chain transportation in India, the new D-MAX pick-up promises higher ‘value for money’ to the operators.
The new D-MAX Regular Cab (cab-chassis variant) is powered by a 2.5L 4-cylinder Common Rail Turbo Intercooled diesel engine, which develops maximum power of 78bhp, while offering enhanced efficiency and promises superior quality of transportation for cold-chain operators. The Japanese automaker inaugurated its new state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Sri City, Andhra Pradesh in April 2016. The facility is spread over 107 acres with initial capacity of 50,000 units which can be further escalated upto 1.20 Lakh units. The company has invested Rs. 3000 Crores in this production facility and D-Max pickups would be manufactured here with localization of nearly 70 percent.
