Isuzu Zen Concept

2001 Isuzu Zen Concept

The innovative two-volume proportions of Z E N stand out in any setting. The major design themes are Japan’s ancient essence of harmony and interior volume enclosed by geometric lines that echo modern architecture. Z E N’s essential character is revealed when the front and rear seats are stowed away.

Isuzu’s designers call this room mode with the interior opened up into a voluminous unobstructed space. In this respect, Z E N marks a radical departure from the conventional, enabling countless interior possibilities. Once at your destination, you can easily convert Z E N . Neither an SUV nor a minivan, Z E N transcends these categories to create a mobile space that is simply unique in the world of motoring.
