The BharatBenz models are tailored specifically to the subcontinent's market and meet a wide range of requirements in the transport and construction sectors. They are ideally suited to the climatic and economic conditions in India.
Better efficiency and pride of ownership
The key benefits of BharatBenz trucks are:
- Efficiency: fuel-efficient engines ensuring lowest Total Cost of Ownership
- Global technology: Daimler Truck product lineage and know-how, for example in implementing emission norms such as Euro VI, means the brand brings reliable and globally proven technology to Indian customers.
- Pride of Ownership: Owning or driving a ‘Benz’ product is often a source of pride.
