Bharat Benz Coming off the Production Line
Daimler’s subsidiary Daimler India Commercial Vehicles (DICV) has started series production of BharatBenz trucks. Between now and 2014, the brand that was specifically created for the Indian market will launch a total of 17 models, covering the entire weight segment from six to 49 tons GVW. DICV’s product range will meet the rising demand for durable and reliable trucks and prepare the subsidiary for the strong growth expected in the modern domestic segment. The brand’s first product is a heavy-duty truck with 25 tons GVW and an output of 230 hp.
The BharatBenz trucks will be launched on the market in September 2012, when the first vehicles will be handed over to customers through a nationwide network of approximately 70 dealerships.
