Arıkan said “Despite the epidemic, we continue production and export without slowing down. Our vehicles equipped with high technology, which we developed in line with the needs in our export markets, attract great attention in Europe.

Our target is to increase our market share in different segments in domestic and international markets and to achieve our sales targets with new products to be added this year. ”
Bus comfort in midibus size
Isuzu Novociti Life has emerged as a solution for changing market needs with its low base. Novociti Life, which targets narrow streets with a small-sized bus concept instead of large and medium-sized buses, also supports more participation of the disabled and elderly population in social life with its low-based structure. Attracting attention with its midibus-sized bus appearance, Novociti Life's FPT brand NEF4 model engine produces 186 horsepower and 680 Nm torque. Engine technology, which can meet Euro 6C emission norms without the need of FPT's EGR (exhaust gas recycling) system, provides high energy efficiency and low fuel consumption, thus ensuring the norms needed by European municipalities. Isuzu Novociti Life, which has been carefully designed to provide the comfort of the passengers and the service of the vehicle in minimum time, has received a total of 1 awards in 3 year.
Citibus, which is in the bus product group of Anadolu Isuzu, is designed to meet the needs of the city's narrow-street historical city centers and low-population municipalities that provide public transportation services with a length of 9,5 meters. Citibus, which is in the middle bus class preferred by big city municipalities today, is offered as the ideal public transportation vehicle thanks to its compact size, which offers lower investment, low operating costs and optimum passenger capacity and easy maneuverability in narrow streets.
Citibus, which has a 204HK4 Isuzu engine with 1 HP power, offers both comfortable travel and optimum fuel consumption with both manual and automatic transmission options. Thanks to its large interior volume, tilting feature (Kneeling) and easy-to-use wheelchair ramp, it provides an unobstructed journey for all passengers. Citibus, which includes all the necessary security systems, provides a safe journey to both passengers and driver in heavy city traffic thanks to ABS, ASR, integrated retarder, hill-holder, independent air suspension and in-car camera system.
