Default Re: BharatBenz launches three Heavy-Duty Trucks in India

Seen a lot of new BharatBenz dumpers near my place since a major project is underway in the old ITC factory compund.

Got a chance to tail one of them today. The power is something since I got a chance to spot an old TATA 2516c and one of these both loaded on a slight climb. The Bharatbenz overtook the Tata like it was standstill.

They are sold by Trident Trucking from the sticker behind. The same tag line as their Hyundai dealerships.

Spotted these BharatBenz trucks transported to their destination for sale. Was surprised that these were not driven down but put on a carriage and transported. Must be a first in this segment!

Sorry for the poor pics taken by my 2MP phone.

AL is doing this for quite some time. Infact now more than 80% of trucks / buses are transported in truck carriers.

Tata started this practice but has reduced the same. It may start again in due course.

The mechanicals are indeed superior compared to AshLey [Ashok Leyland], hence the intervals between two services are longer. They have done one time investment on the plant in Oragadam Chennai. They posses all the technology they need from Daimler AG [Germany] and hence need not spend afresh on R & D. Hence, the competitive pricing with the promise of better reliability

Bharat Benz [DICV] are already No.3 in the Commercial Vehicle segment in India. They are aiming to be No. 1 in half a dozen years from now. The Germans mean business here and this shows, for, they are even exporting trucks from Oragadam plant to the growing African market under the brand of FUSO trucks.
