Isuzu PH yields 3,040 units sold last January to February 2015

Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) has registered a 56-percent gain in sales with its 3,040 units sold this past January and February.

With this, IPC President Nobuo Izumina said that the company's sales performance within the first two months of the year reflect the “strong product lineup” of Isuzu in the Philippines.

“Our record only shows that Isuzu Philippines Corporation has a strong product lineup that is made up of various vehicles with specific purpose and offer great value for money. With the continued strength of the Philippine economy, such performance could go on as 2015 progresses,” Izumina said.

Based on the combined reports from the Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines Inc. (CAMPI) and the Truck Manufacturers Association (TMA), the all-new mu-X rolled out 1,500 units for January and February 2015 which reflects an increase in sales from the 78 units sold of its predecessor, the Alterra, during the same period last year.

In February 2015 alone, IPC reports that the mu-X yielded a huge increase as it has sold 941 units versus the 43 units delivered for the same month in 2014.

Other than the mu-X, the Isuzu N-Series light-duty truck also contributed to IPC's sales performance with 538 units sold, a 37.9-percent increase last year. On the other hand, IPC's trucks and buses has reached 44 units sold, a 266.7-percent increase as compared to the 12 units sold last year.

Sales of the Crosswind decreased by 47.4-percent to 470 units this year from 894 in 2014. In addition, the D-Max suffered a 15-percent drop with 488 units sold from 575 last year.
