Japanese vehicle-maker Isuzu Motor Ltd said Thursday (30/11/00) that it is to supply low-emission V6 diesel engines to Sweden's Saab Automobile AB from next year, report internet auto-sources (1/12/00).

Citing Yoshiko Shibata, spokeswoman for the Japanese truck-maker, these sources say that the initial shipment of 10,000 engines -reported in the Nihon Keizai Shimbun newspaper - was not correct.

According to Shibata, the number is 'very wrong' although she did not reveal Isuzu's own estimates.
