Following up on its March 27 lendout of its Isuzu D-Max, Isuzu mu-X and Isuzu PUVs as transport vehicles for frontliners in Biñan and Sta. Rosa Laguna, Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) has deployed additional vehicles to the Department of Transportation (DOTr). This includes one Isuzu NLR and one unit Isuzu QKR, both of which are the Japanese automaker’s modern PUVs to be used as the DOTr’s free transport, which now serves 19 routes in Luzon
The two PUVs from IPC would then be turned over to authorized operators for their deployment to 19 specified routes in Luzon, where the extended enhanced community quarantine has been enforced until April 30.
In addition, IPC’s dealerships have also provided their own Isuzu vehicles. Isuzu Inteco lent their PUV vehicles to transport healthcare workers and frontliners in the vicinity of Caloocan and Quezon City for free, Isuzu-BMD Motors provided relief goods, while Isuzu Iloilo provided a D-MAX for the city hospital’s use.
IPC President Hajime Koso said, “With this additional vehicle support, we at IPC hope that our dedicated and enduring heroes in the hospitals would find comfort and safety in their transport. Through our vehicles, we can help them fight the virus more efficiently and effectively.”
