Daimler India Commercial Vehicles (DICV) is celebrating the 5th anniversary of its CV brand BharatBenz trucks. Since September 2012, the brand has delivered more than 55,000 trucks to the customers across India.
The brand progressed into double-digit market share in recent months and extended its position as No. 3 in heavy-duty trucks. In the current year 2017, DICV expects to achieve significant growth with BharatBenz.
DICV has decided to add a second shift at its truck plant in Oragadam near Chennai. Daimler said that the increase in output will also cater to further growth in DICV’s export business, in which the company has sold more than 10,000 trucks since 2013 and will serve 40 markets in Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Latin America by the end of the year.
