In 1929: Sumida L truck:-

Plans moved forward to develop and produce vehicles that were completely made in Japan. The name “Sumida” was chosen from the Sumida River, where the plant was located. Powered with a domestically-produced engine, its power output and fuel efficiency were received favorably to meet the demands of a made-in-Japan model.

In1946: Isuzu Model TX80 truck:-

The Ministry of Trade and Industry released the new TX vehicle standard.

The TX80 was a 5-ton truck powered with gasoline engine released after the war.

In 1949: Diesel Automobile Industry underwent a final name change to become Isuzu Motors Ltd., the company's present name. Soon afterward, the domestic demand for commercial vehicles expanded rapidly due to a rush of emergency orders prompted by the Korean War. Isuzu was in an ideal position to take advantage of this special demand and develop improved products, on account of which the company's sales of diesel-powered vehicles shot up.

In 1959: 1st-gen Elf:-

Isuzu launched the ELF, which holds the number-one share in the domestic light-duty truck market today. Employing an original, easy-to-use cab-over style, the ELF immediately became the country's best-selling light-duty truck, a position it has continued to command ever since. The Elf was Japan’s first full cab-over 2-ton light-duty truck, capable of carrying more load than a bonnet type truck despite its small size. Its solid reputation cemented the Elf as the best-selling truck brand.

In 1972: Faster:-

A 1-ton truck developed as the first model to be exported under the tie-up with GM. With styling based on the Florian passenger car, the Faster was renowned for its stability owing to its low overall height and wide tread

In 1994: 1st-gen GIGA:-

Isuzu’s heavy-duty truck underwent a full model change and was released as the GIGA. Named after the unit prefix for billion as well as meaning large or massive, the truck was the largest model Isuzu had ever produced.

In 2002: 1st-gen D-MAX:-

A 1-ton pickup truck jointly developed by Isuzu and GM. Positioned as a strategic model released globally through collaborative efforts with GM, production of the D-MAX was relocated to Thailand the following year to be exported to markets around the world.

In 2006: 6th-gen Elf released

In 2007: 6th-gen Forward:-

The 6th generation Forward was released in 2007. With medium-duty and light-duty trucks consolidated into a single model group, the 6th-gen Forward was developed as a truck capable of meeting performance requirements for global markets.

In 2015: 2nd-gen GIGA:-

More than just individual trucks, the GIGA was developed as an essential component making up transport systems. It is designed on a lightweight, aerodynamic cab and features the “MIMAMORI” remote vehicle data analysis system. The “PREISM” service was also rolled out to make use of this data.
