Daimler India Commercial Vehicles Pvt. Ltd. (DICV), the wholly-owned subsidiary of Daimler AG, has launched its new generation of BharatBenz medium duty trucks, MD IN-POWER.
Featuring four new generation medium duty BharatBenz models (914R, 1214R, 1214RE, and 1217C), the new trucks are available in a base or a premium variant and are now commercially available at BharatBenz dealerships across India, according to the company.
The new MD IN-POWER range underlines the BharatBenz brand’s focus on customer requirements and its emphasis on R&D and innovation to further boost its hallmark value-for-money proposition. The most prominent example – and an industry-first in India’s MDT segment – is the multi drive mode (MDM) which allows drivers to optimize engine settings either for urban traffic or highway trucking with the push of a button. Furthermore, the MD-INPOWER range comes with an enhanced focus on payload advantage, improved fuel efficiency, higher service intervals, radial tires and enhanced feature-loaded driving comfort. The radial tires offer better traction, longer life and greater returns. Further new key features include better low-end torque, longer service intervals, and contemporary styling. Keeping its commitment to a clean environment, the new BharatBenz range of MDTs is available BS-III, BS-IV and Euro-V ready, according to the company.
