50,000 Bharat Benz trucks on Indian roads
Bharat Benz is currently celebrating the handover of its 50,000th truck, which marks an unprecedented ramp-up in India’s commercial vehicle industry.
First unveiled in February 2011, the vehicle was launched onto the market in September 2012. The brand soon featured a fully-fledged product portfolio in the medium and heavy-duty segments and crossed the first major milestone of 10,000 units in April 2014. Since then sales have steadily accelerated.
The truck builder updated its entire truck portfolio within a short span by refreshing the medium-duty range in 2016, and introducing an all-new heavy-duty range in 2017. (ben)
