isuzu pickup fleet conversions showcased at cv show 2018

Birmingham 26th April 2018 – Isuzu UK showcased award-winning D-Max conversions at CV Show 2018, following significant fleet partnerships in first quarter of 2018.

Positioned at the forefront of the Isuzu stand, the two conversion models based on the D-Max Utility showcased the versatility of the award-winning pickup, which makes it ideal for professional and industry fleets.

The Isuzu pickups are proving popular with both large and small businesses, with bespoke fleet partnership options which suit individual business needs. More recent partnerships in the first quarter of 2018 include deals with Western Power, BT Openreach and the RAC, which see the D-Max variants decaled and converted for bespoke use.

Also showcased on conversion partner stands at the CV Show; Gentilli, Cumberland and Strongs; the D-Max provides a solid basis for conversion across a diverse range of fleets in numerous industries. Coupled with its range of variants, the D-Max is proven to be the professional’s pickup of choice, having won numerous awards in 2018, more recently ‘Best Workhorse Pickup’ at the 2018 Trade Van Driver Awards, presented at the CV Show.

Paul Murphy, Cumberland Platforms LTD Managing Director, said: “Our relationship with Isuzu has grown from strength to strength over the years. This is due to the support they have shown us with a variety of conversions and also the time they have taken to understand our needs as a company.

“You could argue that the Isuzu D-Max is made for the conversion market. This model comes in at a low cost but maintains a very high standard of quality. The light weight chassis and no ad blue makes it perfect for the development of a variety of conversion. For instance, the Isuzu CPL Chipper Tipper boasts a 1300Kg payload thanks to some clever engineering and the weight of the D-Max. It just works!”

Sean Smith, Fleet and Used Vehicle Manager at Isuzu UK commented: “Isuzu pickups are the perfect partners for fleet users in a range of industries. The versatile vehicles have a track record of delivering reliability, fuel efficiency and a workhorse nature which never fails to deliver. The conversions on display at the CV Show are just a small example of what we can offer and we welcome any enquiries regarding future partnerships”.

The award-winning Isuzu D-Max has already had a successful 2018 being named both WhatVan? Pickup of the Year 2018 and Professional Pickup and 4X4 Magazines Most Reliable Pickup of 2018, impressing judges across the board with its workhorse nature, unbeatable reliability, 1 tonne payload and maximum 3.5 tonne towing capability.
