Cummins and Isuzu Motors announced an agreement to create a prototype medium-duty, battery-electric truck to demonstrate in North America. This truck represents the first zero-emissions solution facilitated by the Isuzu Cummins Powertrain Partnership (ICPP) formed in May 2019. (Earlier post.).
Through this arrangement, Cummins will integrate the Cummins PowerDrive 6000 into Isuzu’s F-Series truck and will pilot the truck with prominent North American fleets beginning in 2022.
Following a successful demonstration and pilot phase, Isuzu will explore opportunities to commercialize medium-duty, battery-electric trucks with Cummins-powered systems across North America.
