Isuzu launches standalone South African business, new mu-X utility vehicle

Isuzu Motors South Africa (IMSA) on Friday not only launched its standalone business at its manufacturing plant in Struandale, Port Elizabeth – apart from the General Motors brand, following the latter’s exit from South Africa last year –  but also showcased its new bakkie-derived sports utility vehicle (SUV), the mu-X, for the first time. The seven-seater mu-X is set to compete in the local SUV space, where IMSA already sells its Trooper and Frontier SUV models.
