1,393

Cummins Inc. and Isuzu Motors Limited announced an agreement to create a prototype medium-duty, battery-electric truck to demonstrate in North America. This truck represents the first zero-emissions solution facilitated by the Isuzu Cummins Powertrain Partnership (ICPP), formed in May 2019.

Through this arrangement, Cummins will integrate the Cummins PowerDrive6000 into Isuzu’s F-Series truck and will pilot the car with major North American fleets beginning in 2022.

“We are excited to be working with Isuzu to accelerate decarbonization within the partnership,” said Amy Davis, Vice President and President of New Power at Cummins. “It’s through our joint commitment to innovation that we provide our customers with safe, reliable zero-emissions solutions.”

Following a successful demonstration and pilot phase, Isuzu will explore opportunities to commercialize medium-duty, battery-electric trucks with Cummins-powered systems across North America.

“As addressed in Isuzu Environmental Vision 2050, we will advance global environmental actions including reducing greenhouse emissions and securing a prosperous and sustainable society. As part of the path to carbon neutrality, it is significant for us to start this joint BEV prototype project in North America. Through our partnership, we commit to continuing to explore further opportunities in the next-generation power source, including electric powertrain technologies in addition to the existing powertrain collaboration,” said Koichi Seto, Director of the Board, and Senior Executive Officer at Isuzu.

Cummins and Isuzu continue to innovate and advance the future of power to support customers in achieving zero emissions. Benefitting from each other’s unique strengths, the companies will seek opportunities to expand collaborations further to drive global growth.Advertisement
