Daimler Begins Sales of Medium-Duty BharatBenz Trucks in India

March 04, 2013

Daimler’s subsidiary Daimler India Commercial Vehicles (DICV) will bring a total of 17 new truck models of the BharatBenz brand on the Indian market by the year 2014.

After last year’s top sales hit of over 1,000 heavy-duty trucks within a three month period, DICV is now setting yet another mile-stone. The heavy-duty models in the weight classes from 25 to 31 tons are joined on the market by the medium-duty trucks from 9 to 12 tons. With this move, DICV is successively rolling out the broad-based truck portfolio “Made in India,” according to the company.

The medium-duty trucks of BharatBenz are suitable for a great variety of applications, according to the company. The vehicles, which are used primarily for construction site and distribution transport and can be bought as a base for refrigeration installations, come with 140 hp or 170 hp engines and are at least 10 percent more fuel-efficient than other comparable products on the Indian market.
