Along with the announcement that the 1.9 litre Ddi BluePower turbodiesel engine will be launched locally, Isuzu Malaysia also assured customers that its existing models are compatible for use with B10 biodiesel.

As stipulated by the government, mandatory use of B10 biodiesel in Malaysia has already started as of February 1, 2019, but only for the transportation sector for now. The implementation of the B10 programme for the transportation sector started on December 1 last year.

Primary industries minister Teresa Kok had previously said Malaysia aims to increase its biodiesel mandate in the transport sector to B20 by 2020, and to B10 from B7 in the industrial sector.
