Transforming Indian Commercial Vehicle Industry through Adaptive Mobility Solutions
First unveiled in February 2011, BharatBenz celebrated its market launch in September 2012. Within five years of our market entry, we delivered over 55,000 BharatBenz trucks to our customers, an unprecedented ramp-up in the Indian CV industry.
The BharatBenz brand offers a range of ultra-modern trucks in all weight categories from 9 to 49 tones. In addition to our portfolio of trucks, we also supply school, staff and tourist buses. These vehicles are specifically tailored for the Indian market and its demanding customer requirements by Daimler AG, the world’s leading CV manufacturer with a global reach.
BharatBenz trucks and buses are sold and serviced through a pan-Indian network of more than 130 touch points which is continuously expanded further also beyond the tier-2 and tier-3 cities.
The names of the founding fathers of Daimler AG, Gottlieb Daimler and Carl Benz, are inextricably linked with the creation of the automobile which began in 1886 with Daimler’s first motor carriage and Carl Benz’s three-wheeled vehicle. The DNA of BharatBenz dates back to 1896 when Gottlieb Daimler built the world’s first truck!
From the very beginning, Daimler’s automobiles have been positioned as the leading vehicles for quality, safety, and comfort. Today, we are the global leaders in trucking which we are extremely proud of and now we bring the technology and experience of this unique heritage to India, with our four leading principles of course!
We at BharatBenz are committed to play an important role in India’s economic advancement through commercial mobility solutions that will accelerate the progress of business in India.
The new markets and opportunities that we create are the result of the value we place in excellence. Our constant endeavour is to provide only the best in Truck-o-nomics. We believe in value-led globally proven technology. As a technology leader we further stand for India’s safest and most reliable trucks.
At the beginning of our venture, we spent time in understanding what the Indian trucking community wanted. The meticulous research captured on road-load data has given us key insights of trucking, right from Kashmir to Kanyakumari.
Our trucks are being rigorously tested on our state of the art test track which has a super elevation track that enables testing at 3 different speeds. The testing facility also includes a bump track with 40,832 cobblestones laid to precision, articulation and potholes, which together stimulate the toughest conditions that a truck may have to traverse on Indian roads.
