In Malaysia, the truck is manufactured by Heavy Industries Corporation of Malaysia (HICOM) under the name of HICOM Perkasa, but carrying the Isuzu N-Series Commando badge. Manufacturing began in 1958 with the first cars going to Asia. Australia was another important market for the Elf & N-Series - to the extent that it was manufactured there from the 1970s using many local components.
For the Chilean and Peruvian markets the trucks come in boxes in SKD regime to Huechuraba, Chile, where up to 7 a day can be assembled by a team of 13 workers. Every piece comes from Japan. In many markets the Elf & N-Series was very expensive and was replaced by the Isuzu Truck when that model became available for worldwide market in the early 1980s. In June 10th, 2008, GM Chile announced its 20.000th Isuzu truck assembled in its Huechuraba plant (including N and F series).
Most models of the truck are distinguishable by a front 'Elf' or 'NHR', 'NKR', 'NPR', 'NQR', 'NRR' badge, but the common Isuzu badge is usually used on the rear.
