The truck will be developed by replacing the power train of Isuzu’s Elf small truck with a driving motor and battery.
“We aim at a drive range longer than 100 km,” Isuzu said in a statement. “With that drive range, the truck can be easily used for delivery operation in urban areas.”
The key is a lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery. The EV truck is equipped with two 40kWh battery packs, which are located between the right front and rear wheels and between the left front and rear wheels, respectively.
