Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC), together with its dealer Isuzu Zamboanga, handed over 98 brand-new units of the Isuzu Traviz to the City Government of Zamboanga. This contributed to the company achieving its sales milestone of selling 10,000 units of the light commercial vehicle (LCV).

The Isuzu Traviz with rescue vehicle body types is equipped with strobe lights, a built-in siren with PA system, and a 1-unit spine board. These will then be distributed to the different barangays as part of the City Government’s thrust on the Barangay Emergency Network Group program which aims to equip and capacitate the barangays to ensure immediate response during emergencies and calamities.

IPC Department Head for Dealer Sales, Mario Ojales, led the turnover of units to the local government officials of the City of Zamboanga headed by Mayor Maria Isabelle “Beng” Climaco Salazar, Councilor Digong Asdali, Vice-Mayor-elect Josephine Pareja, Councilor-elect James Pantaleon Siason and Councilor-elect Eddie Saavedra.

The City Government cited that apart from the competitive pricing, they also took into consideration the fuel efficiency of Isuzu Traviz – making it convenient and ideal for multi-purpose trips in the barangays. With a fuel tank capacity of 50 liters, the Isuzu Traviz can travel up to 1,063 km in one full tank according to the results of the One Full Tank Challenge conducted by IPC as observed and certified by the Automobile Association Philippines (AAP) in April 2022.

At the heart of the Traviz is the Euro 4-rated 4JA1 2.5-liter diesel engine that’s mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. This allows the Traviz to carry a maximum payload of 1.6 tons which makes it capable of hauling plenty of goods or people in one go. Combined with its 4.5m turning radius, the Traviz is pretty maneuverable despite its size.

In celebration of Isuzu achieving a 10,000 sales milestone for the Traviz, IPC also launched its “10K Thank You Treat” - a series of promotions for existing and potential Traviz customers that includes;

1. 10,000 liters worth of fuel to be raffled off to 500 customers nationwide who will purchase or reserve a Traviz unit

2. P10,000 cash Traviz referral bonus on top of the existing P10,000 referral fee that IPC is already offering for both existing and potential customers

3. 10% discount on Labor and Parts for Any Periodic Maintenance Service (PMS) and/or general job with Free 1-liter Isuzu Genuine Motor Oil XTRM
