The new N-Series is a completely new truck from ground up, offering far-reaching benefits be it from the perspective of an owner or a driver, particularly in the area of safety where the ELF is the first light duty truck in the country to comply with stringent United Nations Economic Commission For Europe (UNECE) safety standards.
The introduction follows Isuzu Malaysia’s pledge to provide Malaysian truck operators with a comprehensive range of Isuzu products that far surpass their demands for vehicles capable of driving their businesses or operations forward dependably and economically.
The light-duty Isuzu ELF now features three versions, starting with the 4-wheeled NLR that comes with a Gross Vehicle Weight of 4.8 tons, the 6-wheeled NPR that has a gross weight of 5 tons and a new 6-wheeled NQR that comes with a gross weight of 8.5 tons, the first in its class to boast such a generous tonnage due to its high axle load capacity.
In order to meet the varying requirements of individual customers, there are no fewer than nine different configurations available in the light-duty ELF range and this includes two high-performance common rail engines and two six-speed transmissions in the line-up.
While Isuzu products are already well regarded for durability, reliability and efficiency, this sixth-generation N-Series has received significant improvements and enhancements over the previous editions in several important areas such as occupants’ comfort, cab space, major interior revamp and safety features.
With the introduction of the Isuzu ELF, Isuzu Malaysia expects to continue commanding 44 percent of the light-duty truck market this year, with a targeted number of units sales of no less than 6,500 units.
Price range for the ELF goes from RM 92,593.00 to 105,293.00 on-the-road with varying insurance, applicable for the Peninsular. East Malaysian folks should expect a slightly higher price range.
