Chronology
Predecessor Isuzu Cubic

The Isuzu Erga (kana:いすゞ・エルガ) is a heavy-duty single-decker bus marketed by the Japanese manufacturer Isuzu and introduced in 2000. It is primarily available as a public bus in either a complete bus or a bus chassis. It is built by J-Bus from Japan either as a step-entrance bus (One-step and Two-step) or a low-floor bus (Non-step (Type A and Type B)).[2]

First generation (2000-2015)[edit]

The styling is completely different from the Cubic. The Isuzu Erga has a deep double-curvature windscreen and a rounded roof dome (more rounded as compared to the Cubic) with a separately mounted destination display. Its Hino-rebadged version is the Hino Blue Ribbon II.
