Isuzu D-Max Sales Up in First Half of 2016
Demand for the ultra-fuel- efficient and highly-dependable Isuzu D-Max rose in the first six months of 2016, bucking the downward trend of the overall automotive market in general and the pick-up truck segment in particular that saw a contraction of 15 percent across the board.
Sales of Isuzu D-Max rose to 3,069 units, recording a 10.6 percent increase over the corresponding period in 2015 while its market share gained 3.4 percent to command a 14.7 percent market share in its pick-up truck segment.
In announcing the results, Executive Director of Isuzu Malaysia Hajime Machimura said that the high demand remained consistent with previous market trends when consumer sentiment was at its ebb.
The Isuzu D-Max has been proven to be one of the toughest and most fuel efficient pick-up trucks in the market, having traversed the heart of Sabah’s interior numerous times over the years in the Borneo Safari off-road challenge while remaining the undefeated Asian Auto Fuel Efficiency Award trophy holder for a record six consecutive times.
Based on the current sales momentum of the Isuzu D-Max and the heightened customer-centric efforts by the company, Isuzu Malaysia is confident that its sales performance this year could better the 6,042-unit record achieved in 2014 despite the downward forecast by the Malaysian Automotive Association (MAA).
