Cummins and Isuzu Sign Letter of Intent to Evaluate Partnership Opportunities

The “Bigs” have decided to play even bigger. Cummins and Isuzu announced that they have signed a Letter of Intent to jointly evaluate opportunities to deliver globally competitive products.

In the commercial vehicle space, power sources are increasingly becoming more diverse and emissions regulations continue to grow more stringent around the world. Significant investment will be required to deliver the best next generation diesel and natural gas based powertrain solutions as well as alternative powertrains, connectivity and autonomy that customers demand. Both companies realized that collaboration and strategic partnerships will be essential to share investment costs and win in the market.

Tom Linebarger, Chairman and CEO of Cummins Inc. said: «Isuzu is a leading global company with a reputation for excellence in trucks, powertrains and customer service. Our companies share a commitment to technology leadership, quality and dependability for our customers, and global reach. We also share common values in the way we do business and how we treat our people, our customers, and our partners. Cummins is honored to be working with Isuzu and to explore how to leverage our respective strengths to create new opportunities for both companies».
