Isuzu North America is has announced the development of an all new, zero-emission Isuzu class 6 & 7 truck utilizing an Accelera by Cummins powertrain. The models will be for both the United States and Canada. This truck represents the first zero-emissions solution facilitated by the Isuzu Cummins Powertrain Partnership formed in May 2019.

The new trucks will be powered by Accelera’s next generation lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery technology. Isuzu said the new medium-duty trucks will support customers in achieving zero emissions while providing all the benefits associated with a low cab forward chassis design.

Current plans for the vehicle’s availability is slated for 2026.

“With the start of production of our Isuzu class 5 N-Series EV coming this summer and with the future addition of the Isuzu battery electric class 6 & 7 truck, we will be able to provide zero emission solutions across our product line-up,” said Shaun Skinner, executive officer, Isuzu Motors Limited. “This will also improve the breadth of our overall offerings providing customers the ability to choose the product and propulsion system that best fits their needs.”

Amy Davis, president, Accelera by Cummins, said she values the Isuzu-Cummins collaboration to help customers achieve zero emissions. “Partnership and collaboration is critical to supporting customers through the energy transition,” Davis added. “Together with Isuzu, and our joint commitment to innovation, we will provide customers with safe, reliable zero-emissions solutions.”
