Isuzu PH Turns Over First AT-Equipped N-Series Truck To Customer

Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC), the country’s leading assembler and distributor of brand-new trucks, together with Inteco President, Raymond Jarina and Isuzu Quezon Avenue Branch Manager, Ranvin Jarina, turned over the first Isuzu N-Series Smoother truck in the country to Kimwealth Infinity Marketing Corporation, a supplier of lighting fixtures and other electrical devices, located in Congressional Avenue, Quezon City.

During turnover, Ms. Minelli Ong, Vice President of Kimwealth Infinity Marketing Corporation, shared that their business is expanding, and they needed a brand-new truck to serve their need for timely and reliable delivery of products to customers. And because of their good experience with their current Isuzu trucks, they decided to visit their trusted dealership, Isuzu Quezon Avenue which provides the best aftersales service for them.

When asked why she chose Isuzu N-Series Smoother, Ong asserted, “The concept of drive like AT, efficient like MT convinced us to buy the N-Series Smoother. “With various benefits of reduced lifecycle and maintenance costs, improved fuel efficiency, and less driving fatigue for safety will contribute a lot towards the cost-effectiveness of our company”.

On their dealer visit, Ranvin Jarina helped Kimwealth Infinity Marketing understand how the Isuzu Smoother is a better option. As he explained, “With their countless daily deliveries and considering traffic inside and outside Metro Manila, the Isuzu N-Series Smoother is ideal since it is easy to drive, economical, and safe. It is because of its Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) technology, an innovative intelligent gearshift system. It operates without the clutch pedal and achieves automatic shift change by computer control. This lessens the driving stress and allows driver to focus on the road. And because it has no clutch pedal, it is economical because there is no need to spend on clutch maintenance and no downtime due to clutch component breakdown.”

IPC President, Mr. Hajime Koso, valued the partnership between Kimwealth Infinity Marketing Corporation and Isuzu Quezon Avenue emphasizing both companies’ commitment to their customers. “As the number one truck brand in the country, Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) once again takes the lead in the Philippine truck market as we introduce the Isuzu N-Series Smoother, the first light duty truck with an automated manual transmission in the country. This Isuzu model has long been existing and highly popular in the overseas market. And we are confident our newest light duty truck model will have good market acceptance. In 2020, we finished as Philippine’s top truck brand, making us number 1 truck brand for 21 years in a row. This year, with the Isuzu N-Series Smoother we want to take the same lead”, Mr. Koso said.


  1. No clutch pedal; but yes AMT still has a clutch assembly which can still fail. However, I guess MTBF would be a lot longer since drivers won't be riding the clutch anymore

  2. I hope the Isuzu N-Series AMT will be also to NLR77, NMR, NPR and NQR.
