Isuzu to source truck engines from Cummins for key models

US deal to help Japanese automaker focus on EV and other next-generation tech

Isuzu models mounted with Cummins engines will hit North America in 2021, before being released in Japan and other markets.

TOKYO -- Isuzu Motors will outsource diesel truck engines to Cummins, a U.S. engine supplier, in a move designed to allow the Japanese commercial vehicle maker to focus on emerging technologies, Nikkei learned on Wednesday.

The arrangement begins later this year and is expected to help save tens of millions of dollars in research and development expenses annually, sources said.
