Daimler India Commercial Vehicles launched its made-in-India BharatBenz trucks in Nepal and unveiled its new dealership in Birganj, Nepal. Nepal is the first export market for BharatBenz trucks, in line with DICV’s export plans to 15 markets. In total, DICV now exports to 10 markets. In Nepal, the trucks will be sold through Omni Trucking dealership.
The BharatBenz trucks manufactured at DICV‘s plant in Oragadam and launched in Nepal comprise 7 models (914 R, 1214 R, 1217 C, 2523 R, 2523 C, 3123 R, 4023 T) spanning medium-duty and heavy-duty trucks with various usage and applications.
Speaking about this new development, Erich Nesselhauf, CEO and Managing Director, DICV, said, “With more than 1,000 trucks exported to various countries last year, we are right on track with our export plans. Entering the Nepalese market marks the next step in expanding our export business. BharatBenz will be an appropriate fit for this country as there are many similarities between the Indian market and the Nepalese market.”
He further added, “Our state-of-the-art dealership network is fully equipped with highly skilled manpower and service capabilities to fulfill the requirements of our customers. Our dealerships, while providing focused sales consultancy will ensure that our BharatBenz trucks are delivering maximum value to the Nepalese customers.”
