Isuzu confirms 4-vehicle line up and plenty of telematics at CM Live

Leading UK commercial vehicle distributor Isuzu Truck will be providing
four trucks from its 2012 product range for the ‘Ride and Drive’
programme at the inaugural CM Live on October 3-4. Demonstration rides
will be available in two Isuzu Forward 7.5t and two Isuzu Forward 11.00t
rigids – all four vehicles feature the company’s proven Easyshift
transmission system.

Furthermore, this is the first time that ITUK has had the opportunity to
demonstrate its highly innovative Mimamori telematics system. All four
vehicles will be monitored and tracked in front of many observers at the
event and it will enable all drivers to get feedback on their own
driving performance when they return to the Isuzu Truck stand.

The four new Isuzu trucks available for the ‘ride and drive’ programme
include:

Isuzu N75.190 7.5t 4×2 rigid chassis day cab, Easyshift transmission and
specified with a 20ft Micra Truck Bodies curtainsided body with rear
shutter doors and Dhollandia tuckaway tail lift.

Isuzu N75.190 7.5t 4×2 rigid chassis day cab, Easyshift transmission and
specified with a 20ft Fosters grp box body with rear shutter doors and
DEL column tail lift.

Isuzu F110.210 11.00 4×2 rigid chassis day cab, Easyshift transmission
and fitted with a 21ftTrans Load curtain sided body complete with rear
double doors and an Anteo tuckaway tail lift.

Isuzu F110.210 11tonne 4×2 rigid chassis day cab, Easyshift transmission
fitted with a 21ft Bevan curtain sided body, also with double rear doors
and an Anteo column tail lift.

Announcing details of the Isuzu vehicle line up at CM Live, Keith Child,
marketing director at Isuzu Truck UK said; "This event at Millbrook will
give operators an excellent opportunity to test drive the current Isuzu
vehicles at both 7.5 and 11 tonnes. All of our trucks will be loaded to
give a realistic performance plus all of them will be fitted with the
Mimamori telematics system. This will enable all drivers and spectators
to obtain first-hand experience of the benefits from running vehicles
fitted with such a clever and innovative driver and operator management
programme."

Isuzu’s Mimamori is proven technology developed by Isuzu Motors in Japan
and is extensively used in the Japanese domestic market where over
40,000 vehicles currently use it to improve operational efficiencies and
management reports.

As Keith Child continues, "We are using this event to demonstrate that,
in today’s tough economic climate, operators need accurate monitoring
information at their fingertips in order to manage and improve
operational efficiencies. With fuel, driver’s labour costs and vehicle
downtime representing significant operational costs, the range of
technology available from Mimamori enables users to gain a greater
knowledge of their fleet operations 24/7."
