Isuzu Motors India today rolled out the 10,000th vehicle from the company's Sri City plant, in Andhra Pradesh. The milestone vehicle to be rolled out of the assembly line was the 2018 Isuzu D-Max V-Cross adventure utility vehicle, which went on sale in India in May 2016. Interestingly, Isuzu India breached the 10,000 sales milestone in India, back in March 2018 itself, which also included the vehicles that were manufactured at Hindustan Motors' facility near Chennai, till early 2016. This D-Max V-Cross, on the other hand, simply marks the 10,000th vehicle to be rolled out of the Sri City plant alone.

In addition to the domestic market, Isuzu's Sri City plant also caters to export markets like Nepal and Bhutan.
