What were Daimler boffins thinking when it came to choosing the tail light?

It's the same sub-standard stuff that everyone else uses in the country. It's characterized by poor illumination, poor visibility, poor sealing, fast-fuse-poor-quality bulbs, poor everything! That too in a Rs. 40 lakh truck!

But then human life is cheap in India, isn't it?

Indian truck and made for India so India's favourite tail-light

Easily available and replaceable if they are conscious.

Interiors and build seems to be good and quality of materials too are above the current standard.

Finally BharatBenz is a full range player. The products are definitely of high quality. The sales figures show that. The tractor trailors are extremely capable and will make the other models in the market to eat dust. Tatas and Leylands will have to do a great job to get the market back.

Ashok Leyland and Tata already have presence in these segments with matching cabins and features. In the CV industry, more than 'Brand Value', its the overload/abuse capability and Fuel Efficiency which matters and the two Indian companies are experts in that game. Bharatbenz dealers are in big financial difficulty partly because of the Industrial slow down and also because the earlier trucks did not meet the tall claims of 10% more fuel efficiency against competition. ALL and Tata are no pushovers whether it be Volvo or Scania or Daimler.
