Isuzu Motors Limited, headquartered in Yokohama, Japan, under the leadership of President and COO Shinsuke Minami, is set to showcase its inaugural battery electric vehicle, the D-MAX pickup truck, at the esteemed 45th Bangkok International Motor Show from March 27 to April 7 in Thailand. The D-MAX BEV has been meticulously crafted to cater to a wide range of commercial and passenger vehicle requirements while maintaining the rugged performance synonymous with pickup trucks.

Let’s take a quick look at some of the key specifications of the pickup truck:


The D-Max BEV incorporates several EV-specific styling cues to differentiate it from its internal combustion engine (ICE) counterpart. Notable features include a closed-off front grille and blue accents along the front air intakes, signaling its electric powertrain. However, many design elements remain consistent with the ICE version, maintaining the iconic D-Max aesthetic. While the truck’s interior has yet to be revealed, there is speculation that it may share a similar layout with the standard D-Max, offering familiarity to existing customers while embracing the future of electric mobility.

Innovative Performance and Features

The D-MAX BEV boasts a full-time 4WD system equipped with newly developed e-Axles both in the front and rear, delivering exceptional performance on challenging terrains while offering a smooth and linear acceleration typical of electric vehicles. Moreover, the vehicle ensures high towing capacity through the integration of high-power electric motors, coupled with a sturdy frame and body design. This blend of innovation and durability ensures that the D-MAX BEV matches the performance standards set by conventional diesel models.
