Isuzu and Hino Motors Work Together on Diesel Emissions Reduction

The Nikkei reports that Isuzu Motors and Hino Motors, the Toyota commercial vehicle subsidiary, are teaming up to develop technology for diesel engine emissions reduction.

By adopting the same technology and supplying related parts to each other, they aim to reduce costs. The technology would be applied to their new truck models beginning in 2009.

In November 2006, Toyota took a 5.9% stake in Isuzu and the two companies began “studying the synergic effects of business collaboration” much of it focused on the development of advanced diesels for the light duty market.

The two are jointly developing a 1.6-liter advanced, low-emissions diesel engine that features cutting-edge fuel injection and catalyst technologies. Toyota reportedly will outsource production of advanced diesels to Isuzu. (Earlier post.)

So it looks like Isuzu is collaborating with Toyota not just on small car diesel development, but also larger commercial diesel development. The competition better be cautious, because Hino and Isuzu are Asia's top two diesel makers, and them working together will result in something very special.
