KUALA LUMPUR: Isuzu Malaysia recently contributed one unit of its ELF NPR 6-wheeler truck to DRB-HICOM University - the country’s leading automotive university.

The unit is equipped with the latest Common Rail Engine for the academic use of the automotive students attending Diploma and Degree courses at the university.

During the handover ceremony, Isuzu Malaysia chief operating officer Mikio Tsukui, presented a symbolic mock key to DRB-HICOM University dean (Post Graduate Faculty) Prof. Dr. Abd Rahni bin Mat Piah.

Tsukui believes that the contribution will help to further enhance students’ academic experience at the university.

“The contribution will provide students a greater opportunity to understand Isuzu’s latest engine technology, which will in turn be impactful for the automotive after-sales sector in the long run,” said Tsukui.

The Isuzu ELF NPR 6-wheeler truck is equipped with a 5.2-litre engine, with a six-speed
transmission supported by an Electronic Control Unit (ECU), in addition to a 5.125 final gear ratio.
