Isuzu Challenge

The Isuzu Challenge puts both driver and his Isuzu vehicle to a test of fuel economy. It brings together individuals and families that have achieved a more diverse and richer quality of life through their chosen Isuzu. Its goal is to raise in the consciousness of our customers the importance of saving fuel, which in turn, help save the environment.

Bringing this vision to life are different promotional campaigns that stress the value of fuel economy driving. Noteworthy of these efforts is the Isuzu E-Drive “No Idling” promo.

It has since peaked to a different level as Isuzu started holding a fuel economy contest for its clients. And so the Isuzu Challenge was born. These were the encouraging results of the tests.
