Japanese automobile manufacturer Isuzu is gradually ramping up component sourcing from India for its global operations as it develops local vendors here. The company has already roped in around 100 suppliers which are primarily meeting local requirements for rolling out pick-up truck from its plant in Andhra Pradesh. “We are already doing it,” Isuzu Motors India (IMI) deputy MD Hitoshi Kono said while sharing the company’s plans to source components from India for global operations. Isuzu MU-X launched at Rs 23.99 lakh; will take on Fortuner and other SUVs. While it is too early to quantify how much components are exported from India, he said Isuzu is looking to source components across the board from the country for its global operations.
