Wolseley CP 1.5-ton Truck Reference exhibits
In 1923 and following the successful production of Wolseley A9, the Great Kanto Earthquake struck immediately preceding the completion of the first domestically produced Wolseley CP 1,5-ton truck. The destruction of the quake, which resulted in the drawings and production tools being damaged and lost, almost caused production plans for the truck to be scrapped. However, due to the importance placed upon establishing a national automobile production industry, its manufacture was quickly resumed. By utilizing the original factory, with its caved-in roof, as well as what drawing and tools that remained, production of the truck was completed the following year od 1924, giving this vehicle the distinction of being the first domestically produced truck.

GIGA Dump Truck Currently available
Focused on fuel efficiency and load capacity, as well as compliant with Japan's Post New Long-Term Emission Regulations . With the low-emission 6UZ1-TCH engine and 8MT splitter transmission, load efficiency is increased while both overall vehicle weight and fuel consumption are reduced. Along with a revamped exterior and headlights, step reflectors with excellent light distribution characteristics now add increased visibility.
ELF CNG-MPI Currently available
Based on 2010 Japan Emission Regulations (Post New Long-Term Emission Regulation), emissions of NOx have been reduced by 70% or more, while particulate matter has been decreased by 100%. Injectors are provided to each engine cylinder, and an MPI (multi-point injection) system that enables detailed control of injection timing and volume is equipped.
ERGA Hybrid Currently available
The next evolution of Isuzu's ERGA large fixed-route bus―ERGA Hybrid. Equipped with a diesel engine, automatic clutch, motor, AMT (automated manual transmission), and lithium ion battery, this is a parallel hybrid fixed-route bus that is able to strike a balance between environmental and driving performance. During start-up, only the motor is used. During acceleration, the motor assist the engine, while only the engine is used during normal operation. In addition, the regenerative brake recovers energy to charge the battery during deceleration, creating an optimal system for the frequent stop-and-go operation typical of fixed-route buses.
DA4/DA6 Diesel Engine Reference exhibits
On display is the 4-cylinder DA4 which, along with the 6-cylinder DA6, would be the starting point for all future Isuzu diesel engines. The DA6 was equipped in such vehicles as 5-ton tractors and railroad tractors. This engine achieved a level of low-smoke vehicle operation rate for diesel engines of the time and was known as an engine with low noise, low vibration, and low occurrences of failure.
DL201 Diesel Engine Reference exhibits
The DL200 engine developed one year after the unveiling of the 1st generation ELF vehicle in 1959 was the first lightweight anf high-performance diesel engine for light-duty trucks in Japan. The DL201 displayed here was produced in 1961 as a revamped version of the DL200. Thanks to its superior fuel efficiency, the ELF became the forerunner for light-duty diesel trucks, and received wide acclaim as the Isuzu diesel .
10TD1 Diesel Engine Reference exhibits
Manufacture of this engine designed for heavy-duty vehicles and equipped in GIGA tractors used for heavy transport started in 1997. This naturally aspirated 30.4 liter, 600 horsepower engine featured the highest output among domestic truck engines and played an important role in supporting large scale transport. This was the last engine of its kind manufactureed, as the focus of engine developement has shifted to more compact designs with higher efficiency and lower emissions.
4JJ1-TCS Diesel Engine Currently available
Equipped in the light-duty ELF. The 4JJ1-TCS complies with Japan's Post New Emissions Regulations by increasing engine potential, while employing a DPD (Diesel Particulate Defuser) without the use of urea fluid, thus ensuring the convinience necessary for a light-duty truck. A 2-stage turbo in employed that optimally controls both high and low pressures and allows for turbo performance to be maximized at all speed ranges. Higher EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) and reduced Nox emissions are achieved without sacrificing combustion efficiency. Torque is boosted even at low speeds, contibuting to a cleaner engine with improved fuel economy.
4HK1-TCH Diesel Engine Currently available
Installed in FORWARD medium-duty trucks. The 4HK1-TCH complies with Japan's Post New Emissions Regulations by increasing engine potential, while employing a DPD (Diesel Particulate Defuser) without the use of urea fluid. The equipped 2-stage turbo offers high efficiency at all engine speed. A clean and lightweight engine that balances both environmental and economical performance.
6UZ1-TCH Diesel Engine Currently available
Equipped in the heavy-duty GIGA [rigid / tractor]. To further improve post-processing and meet Japan's Post New Long-Term Emissions Regulation, a urea SCR system is employed in addition to the DPD system. Features a light and compact design that helps ensure the payload demanded of rigid trucks. Selection among a wide range of fuel efficient speeds (low fuel consumption speed range) is possible. With high torque even at low speeds, the 6UZ1-TCH is a clean and powerful engine that achieves both fuel efficiency and peak dynamic performance.
The Mimamori-kun Online Service employs the latest communications and GPS technology to collect real-time data regarding information on vehicle operation and status. This data is shared with the Mimamori Center , where it is analyzed, enabling effective vehicle management through interactive communication between the vehicle and the office. On the vehicle side, real-time information regarding fuel-consumption and safe driving give the driver an up-to-the-minute grasp of the situation while the vehicle is in motion. Meanwhile on the office side, the ability to track the vehicle's current location, as well as check various other vehicle operation data helps to maximaize logistics efficiency/
Safety Technology for Large Vehicles Others
As both VAT and IESC are equipped with a pre-crash brake mechanism, they are state-of-the-art safety technologies that provide total support for the preventative safety of large vehicles during normal operation. By utilizing a high^precision millimeter wave radar, as well as various types of sensors, the VAT allows for the detection of potential accident risks and provides comprehensive backup boosting drivers' cognition, judgement capability, and maneuverability. With the IESC system, sensors monitor the driver's maneuvering and changes in vehicle behavior. The system stabilizes the vehicle, preventing the jack-knifing, rollovers and side skids unique to articulated vehicles.
