Bharat Benz has launched 3 more trucks in India in the Light Duty trucks range with capacity of 9 tonne and two as 12 Tonne. The three models launched include 914, 1214 and 1217. The first two are in the Cargo category while the third one belongs to Tipper category. All three trucks are powered by turbocharged and intercooled inline four cylinder diesel engines. Six speed manual gearboxes are standard on all three trucks. The trucks are priced between INR 10.15 lakhs and 13.58 lakhs.

“High Fuel Efficiency”, “Cabin Comfort” and very importantly “Cabin Safety” are the operative words marking the launch of the highly anticipated range of BharatBenz light-duty trucks, which will now be commercially available across their India dealerships.

Speaking on the occasion of the launch, Georg Weiberg, Head - Product Engineering, Damiler Trucks, Germany, said “It is an obligation for us and our brand BharatBenz to ensure that customers will be happy with these trucks and our Heavy-duty trucks. Our focus was to create a truck with superior performance, efficiency and the best quality but at a very competitive price. To achieve this, we involved our German/Japanese engineers for their technology, experience and Indian engineers for their local expertise and ability to create cost conscious solutions.”

Based on the FUSO Fighter/ Canter platform the new Rigid and Tipper models feature a 4D34i four-cylinder CRDi (Common-rail Direct Injection) engine with 140PS and 170PS power on tap.

Daimler’s financial arm, Daimler Financial Services will offer BharatBenz customers a helping hand in financing these vehicles. BharatBenz dealerships across the country would also provide tailor-made financial services / service packages to interested customers to encourage investment.
