Isuzu Philippines Corp. said sales in the first 10 months jumped 67 percent to 18,335 vehicles from 11,007 units sold in the same period in 2014.
Isuzu Philippines president Hajime Koso expressed optimism the company would sustain the brisk sales toward the end of the year.
The company said total sales breached the 200,000 mark since its operations began in the country in 1996, with 200,665 units sold as of October 2015.
“After reaching the 200,000-sales milestone last month, we believe that Isuzu has been a reliable partner to Filipinos. With that kind of confidence, combine it with the bullish economy and the buying power garnered as the country nears the yuletide season, IPC is adamant that it will enjoy a steady increase in sales,” Koso said.
Company data showed that its flagship model, the Isuzu mu-X, helped sustain the robust sales.
Some 8,794 units of mu-X were sold in the first 10 months, a 767-percent upsurge from 1,014 units sold a year ago.
Another key contributor to the strong sales record was the reliable light, medium to heavy-duty trucks and buses, it said.
Sales of the N-series light duty trucks grew 32 percent in the 10-month period to 3,234 units from 2,447 units sold in the previous year.
Isuzu sold 385 trucks and buses in the first 10 months, up from 167 units delivered in the same period in 2014.
Sales of Isuzu D-Max, however, dropped 21 percent to 2,507 units from 3,186 units rolled out in 2014.
Sales of Isuzu Crosswind also declined 19 percent to 3,415 units from 4,193 units delivered a year earlier.
