Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC), the country’s leading assembler and distributor of brand-new trucks, turned over the first Isuzu N-Series Smoother truck in the country
Together with Inteco president Raymond Jarina and Isuzu Quezon Avenue Branch Manager Ranvin Jarina, IPC turned over a brand new N-Series Smoother to Kimwealth Infinity Marketing Corporation, a supplier of lighting fixtures and other electrical devices, located in Congressional Avenue, Quezon City.
Ms. Minelli Ong, vice president of Kimwealth Infinity Marketing Corporation, shared that their business is expanding and they needed a new and reliable truck to deliver their products to their customers. With their good experience with current Isuzu trucks, they decided to visit their trusted dealership to buy an N-Series Smoother.
“The concept of drive like AT, efficient like MT convinced us to buy the N-Series Smoother. With various benefits of reduced lifecycle and maintenance costs, improved fuel efficiency, and less driving fatigue for safety will contribute a lot towards the cost-effectiveness of our company,” said Ong.
For Ranvin Jarina, the N-Series Smoother lessens fatigue while on the road, which allows the driver to focus on the road. And since it has no clutch pedal, there's no need to spend on clutch maintenance and no downtime due to clutch component breakdown.
“With their countless daily deliveries and considering traffic inside and outside Metro Manila, the Isuzu N-Series Smoother is ideal since it is easy to drive, economical, and safe. It is because of its Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) technology, an innovative intelligent gearshift system. It operates without the clutch pedal and achieves automatic shift change by computer control,” added Jarina.
For IPC president Hajime Koso, the valued partnership between Kimwealth Marketing Corporation and Isuzu Quezon Avenue emphasizes both companies' commitment to their customers. More importantly, he is confident that N-Series Smoother will become a popular model in the country thanks to its ease of operation compared to traditional manual transmissions.
“As the number one truck brand in the country, Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) once again takes the lead in the Philippine truck market as we introduce the Isuzu N-Series Smoother, the first light-duty truck with an automated manual transmission in the country. We are confident our newest light duty truck model will have good market acceptance. In 2020, we finished as Philippine’s top truck brand, making us the number 1 truck brand for 21 years in a row. This year, with the Isuzu N-Series Smoother we want to take the same lead,” said Koso.
