It has been a challenging start to the new decade, and our collective mettle is tested by the ongoing COVID-19 situation. But the continuing community support and solidarity are certainly encouraging to see, and our thoughts are with everyone in this time.

Even in these uncertain times, it’s fair to say trucking never stops. Ensuring essential goods and services get to where they’re needed is absolutely critical at this time, so we are pleased to bring you this March edition of the Truckpower newsletter.

March into N Series savings

The government recently announced stimulus support for Australian businesses, introducing an increased threshold in instant asset write-off to $150,000, as well as other business sustainability and growth initiatives.

For some, right now may well be an ideal time to continue growing your business and prepare for the inevitable rebound.

Till 31 March 2020, great savings on selected N Series cab chassis models are on, helping you to get your business moving and growing.

The N Series sales campaign includes the following tried and tested light-duty models:

  • NLR 45-150
  • NLS 45-150 AWD
  • NLS 45-150 AWD Crew
  • NNR 45-150
  • NNR 45-150 Crew
  • NNR 55-150
  • NNR 65-150

Models featured across the program span a GVM range of 4,500 kg to 6,500 kg, meaning all but two (NNR 55-150 and NNR 65-150) can be driven with a standard car driver’s licence.

Taking into account the clear advantages of payload and towing capacity over majority of utes and vans on the market, there’s more than a few compelling reasons to consider trading up to a competitively-priced N Series light-duty truck.

The N Series sale ends on 31 March 2020, so call into your nearest dealer today for a test drive. Visit the website for further terms and conditions.

Isuzu supports next generation of technicians

With continued increasing domestic and global demand for truck technicians, quality vocational training from Australia’s TAFE institutions is playing a key role in skilling up the next generation of workers.

Locally, it’s estimated that 19,000 trained techs are needed to support the truck industry, with fault diagnosis and electrical nous in particular demand.

In a bid to contribute to the direct experience of service technicians in regional Victoria, Isuzu Australia Limited and Mildura Truck Centre announced the donation of a new medium-duty Isuzu F Series Isuzu truck to the Sunraysia Institute of TAFE (SuniTAFE).
