A subsidiary of truck manufacturer Daimler AG will introduce 17 new medium-duty truck models in India by next year, the company announced.
Daimler India Commercial Vehicles will launch the trucks under the BharatBenz brand. Last year, the brand sold more than 1,000 heavy-duty trucks, Daimler said. The company said the heavy-duty weight classes in that market range from 25 tons to 31 tons, while medium-duty trucks are in the nine- to 12-ton range.
The new lineup is targeted at construction, distribution and refrigerated transport industries, Daimler said, with engines offering 140 horsepower or 170 hp. The company did not state if the engines are powered by diesel, gasoline, or some other fuel.
