BharatBenz celebrates new production milestone despite lockdown
News Desk, News Nation 360: Daimler India Commercial Vehicles (DICV) today announced the production of its 1000th BSVI heavy-duty truck, one of over 1500 BSVIcompliant vehicles the company has manufactured in the last few months despite the ongoing lockdown. The truck was a 3523R model, bound for one of the 235+ touchpoints in BharatBenz’s rapidly expanding Indian network of dealerships before it makes its way to the excited customer. Although production has recently proved a challenge for many manufacturers in the automotive industry, DICV has remained firmly on track throughout the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. While part of this success comes from an 80%+ localisation rate for BSVI components. Rajaram Krishnamurthy, Vice President Marketing & Sales and Customer Service, Daimler India Commercial Vehicles, told since premiering their
new BharatBenz portfolio of BSVI-compliant trucks and buses in January, they have been steadily increasing their lead in the industry. This is proved again now as they celebrate the production of their 1000th BSVI compliant Heavy Duty Truck. DICV’s MD and CEO Satyakam Arya told one of DICV’s core values is the belief that - We Progress Together. They support their stakeholders through the hard times and they celebrate with them in good times. They celebrate these new production milestones both with them and thanks to them. The company provides ongoing support to its customers, suppliers, dealers and employees, aiming to ensure all stakeholders emerge stronger than ever from the crisis.
