With 8,562 units sold from January to September this year--1,426 units more than the 7,136 sold in the same period in 2011--Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) registers not just a 20-percent growth for the first nine months of the year but also an 11-percent share of the commercial-vehicle segment.
Leading IPC's sales is the Crosswind, which accounts for 4,422 units, or more than half of the company's total sales from January to September. In the same period last year, IPC sold 3,598 Crosswind units.
The D-Max has also improved its sales compared to last year with 2,072 units for the nine-month period as against the 1,882 units sold in the same period last year.
IPC's light-, medium- and heavy-duty trucks have also contributed to IPC's 2012 growth, led by the N-Series with 1,184 units versus 859 vehicles sold last year for a 69-percent slice of the light-duty truck segment.
IPC has also moved 279 trucks and buses this year, up from just 145 units in 2011.
"The robust sales performance of IPC this year is attributed to the Philippine market's continuously favorable response toward Isuzu products, which have a reputation for being durable, reliable and fuel-efficient, aside from having high resale values," IPC said in a statement.
