Isuzu Motors unveiled its first battery powered D-Max one tonne pickup truck at the 2024 Bangkok International Motor Show, saying it was “designed to meet a broad range of commercial and passenger vehicle needs while retaining the tough underlying performance expected of pickup trucks”.

The automaker said the Thai made BEV would be launched initially in Europe in 2025, followed by Australia, Thailand and other markets.

The D-Max BEV has a full time 4WD system with newly developed front and rear e-axles which, Isuzu claimed, offers “excellent performance on rough roads and a linear acceleration feel characteristic of BEVs, all while minimising noise and vibration”.

Isuzu said the electric pickup has towing capacity of 3.5 tonnes and maximum payload of one tonne.

A 40kW front electric motor and a 90kW rear motor are powered by 66.9kWh lithium ion batteries. Maximum speed is 130km/h (80mph).

Toyota Motor, Isuzu’s largest competitor in Thailand, plans to launch a battery powered Hilux pickup in 2025.
