On January 15, 2020, Japan's Isuzu Motors and Honda Motors signed a cooperation in Tokyo. The two parties aim to jointly develop fuel cell technology suitable for commercial vehicles and invest in the next-generation Isuzu heavy truck.
This move is of great significance to both Honda and Isuzu. Not only to get rid of the environmental pressure, but also to make efforts to explore the power system in the future commercial vehicle field.
For Isuzu, Isuzu is a global leading brand in the field of light commercial vehicles and has been exploring sustainable power models. Especially in the fields of clean diesel engines, CNG natural gas power and EV pure electric technology, Isuzu has achieved certain results. In the field of fuel cells, Isuzu is not only doing related research and development, but Qingling Automobile, a joint venture in China, has also launched corresponding products.
For the joint research and development of fuel cell technology with Honda, Isuzu's goal is also clear, namely to achieve breakthroughs in powertrain systems and vehicle control technology, and to reduce investment and jointly build infrastructure.
