At the same time, the company is also looking into BEV Light Duty (LD, think pasar malam trucks), Medium Duty (MD, or delivery trucks), and Heavy Duty (HD, big trailers) trucks.

Of those, the Isuzu plans to start mass-producing BEV LDs beginning this year, part of the goal that is to see electrified variants of its major products in the 2030s.
