lsuzu held the number-one position  in more than 50 market sectors worldwide in 2016, according  to sales figures and estimates compiled by  the  company recently.

In Japan, the N Series, known locally as the Elf, attained a 40.2%  share  of cab-over trucks  of between  two-  and three-ton payloads.

The N Series  has held  the  top  position for  16 straight years  and  for  all  but  one  year  since 1970.

lsuzu also was tops among buses with more than 30 seats for the second consecutive year, commanding a 37.3% share.

In the Philippines,  lsuzu extended  its number-one streak  among trucks of more than three tons gross vehicle mass to 17 straight years.

A large increase in sales of heavy-duty  models contributed to a 50.7% market share.

The achieve­ ment  was  supported by  a well-orga­ nized dealer network and strong after­ sales servicing,  including  a program  to dispatch mechanics to customer sites.

Last year, assembler and distributor lsuzu Philippines Corporation  organized eco-driving  and safety-driving  seminars as well as offered customers more options for body mounting and vehicle modifications.

In Israel,  lsuzu topped  the medium­ duty  truck  segment for  the  first  time since  2008,  the  year the F Series  de­ buted locally.

The share jumped 13.9 points  to 31.5%.

In the light-duty truck segment, lsuzu extended its number-one streak to 18 years with a 59.2% share.

Promotional events and advertising in social media helped distributor Universal Trucks Israel sell a record 1,069 trucks, surpassing 1,000  for the first  time.

Pickup sales by distributor Universal Motors  Israel remained  on top  for the 14th straight year with a 48.5% share.

The recent  addition  of nine new  lsuzu D-MAX models  is expected  to help ex­ tend the streak.

In the  Dominican Republic, lsuzu’s share in the light-duty truck segment was a leading 23.6%.

This was lsuzu’s first­ ever number-one designation in the country, where more than 80% of all commercial vehicles are light-duty trucks.

Sales activities  of dealer Autocamiones S.A. included visits  to customers that were organized together with the Latin America & Caribbean  Sales Division of lsuzu Motors America.

Local owners are especially keen on the durability of lsuzu trucks,  particularly the  highly  versatile NPR.

At the 2017 regional conference for Central America and the Caribbean deal­ ers, Autocamiones was recognized as one of the dealers that put lsuzu at the top of its local market.

According to estimates, lsuzu also held  top  positions in Belize, Grenada, Hong  Kong,  Jamaica, Oman,  Saudi Arabia, Uzbekistan and, for the first time, the United Arab Emirates.

In Fiji, Isuzu truck chassis has been number 1 selling truck chassis every year since 2013.

It is still the number one selling truck chassis this year too, with year to date sales figures and 50% plus market share.
