Rumour: Isuzu BS6 stock coming next month

Isuzu's dealers are expecting BS6-compliant stocks of the D-Max, V-Cross and MU-X to arrive in the month of September.

Earlier this year, we had reported that Isuzu had postponed the launch of its BS6 vehicles to Q2 of 2020-21 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Now, a few dealers have reported that the new cars can be expected in the next month.

For the time being, dealers are selling BS4 vehicles which they had registered in their names before the deadline. Discounts of Rs. 1 lakh - 1.5 lakh on BS4 prices are offered on these vehicles along with a free 3 year / 1 lakh km maintenance package. The buyers will be second owners on paper in such cases.

The government of India had mandated March 31, 2020 as the deadline for the registration of BS4 vehicles. Only BS6-compliant vehicles have been on sale from April 1, 2020, barring the exception where the Supreme Court had allowed limited sale of unsold BS4 stock.
