The management of Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) has expressed elation following the announcement that their latest flagship model—the Isuzu mu-X—recently breached the 10,000-unit sales mark, one year after being introduced locally.
IPC president Hajime Koso said that IPC has put its confidence in the mu-X after continuously garnering great figures in terms of sales, saying that it would continue the upward trend as the year progresses.
“Since its introduction in the local automotive market, the mu-X has unfailingly been getting good figures in terms of sales. With all the key features, on-board technology and cutting edge aesthetics, it is a sure hit in the Philippines,” he said.
Based on the report released by the Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines Inc. (CAMPI) and the Truck Manufacturers Association (TMA), IPC delivered 10,511 units of mu-X as of October 2015. From January to October of this year, it has already sold 8,794 units – making the mu-X the new fastest-selling model of IPC to date.
