Isuzu Motors plans to double its one-ton pickup truck output in Thailand by 2005 as it prepares to earn a profit this year after four consecutive years of losses, its top executive told Dow Jones on Wednesday. "Strong performance of our Thai unit will help cover what we have lost before," Isuzu Motors president Yoshinori Ida told Dow Jones Newswires on the sidelines of a company publicity event in Bangkok, adding: "Isuzu's consolidated net profit this fiscal year (to the end of March 2004) will be around 30 billion yen."
