Where is Isuzu made

Back at the beginning of the previous century Isuzu became Japan’s first car maker, and nowadays most of its cars are still made in Japan. Isuzu manufacturing plants are based in Fujisawa, in the Tochigi and Hokkaidō prefectures. Isuzu collaborated with General Motor on several cars. At one point General Motors had an almost 50% share in Isuzu, and later they had a joint venture. According to some sources, Isuzu Ascender was assembled by the GM in the US.
