Isuzu unveils electric D-Max

Isuzu has revealed a new electric version of its Isuzu D-Max pick-up, which will make its debut at the Bangkok Motor Show on March 27.

The all-wheel-drive electric version of the popular Isuzu D-Max is being shown as a concept vehicle, but the manufacturer has confirmed that a production model will follow and could be on sale in the UK as early as 2025.

Like the standard truck, it has a one-tonne payload and a 3.5-tonne towing capacity.

The electric Isuzu D-Max has a maximum power output of 176PS and 325Nm, provided by two electric motors. It has a 66.9kWh battery. The electric range has not yet been announced but will be confirmed closer to the start of production.

Isuzu has not published a range figure for the Isuzu D-Max BEV, but it has claimed a 3.5-tonne towing capacity.

lan Able, managing director of Isuzu UK, said: "The Isuzu D-Max BEV represents a new era for pick-up trucks, combining the legendary toughness of the D-Max with electric technology."

"We are proud to work with a manufacturer committed to creating a carbon-neutral future and announce this innovative vehicle to the UK market, providing our customers with an environmentally friendly option without compromising on performance or reliability."

Are there any known faults with the Ford Ranger?

I am thinking of buying a 2017 Ford Ranger 2.2 XLT 4x4 TDCi. Are there any known faults to look out for? The mileage is 64000.
The Ranger has a reasonably good reliability record, although injector failure is a known issue so look for excessive smoke under acceleration. It's not a major repair, though, as most decent garages would be able to do the job without it being too expensive. The only other real issue we've seen reported is a few engines where the oil pump has failed destroying the engine. It's rare, but we'd steer clear of anything with an incomplete service history for this reason, as dirty oil is the most common cause of pump failure.
