Share this article

Cummins Inc. and Isuzu Motors Limited are teaming up to create a prototype medium-duty, battery-electric truck to demonstrate in North America.

The vehicle represents the first zero-emissions solution facilitated by the Isuzu Cummins Powertrain Partnership (ICPP) formed in May 2019. Through the agreement, Cummins will integrate the Cummins PowerDrive6000 into Isuzu’s F-Series truck and will pilot the truck with major North American fleets beginning in 2022, according to a press release.

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

“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 in innovation that we provide our customers with safe, reliable zero-emissions solutions.”

“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 Isuzu Senior Executive Officer and Director of the Board Koichi Seto.

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