Daimler India Commercial Vehicles Pvt. Ltd. (DICV), along with Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation, Japan (a Daimler Company), has started shipping its DICV-made Fuso trucks to Indonesia. Fuso is the market leader in Indonesia with a market share of 45.4 percent and in the light-duty truck segment (5-8 tons GVW) served by the Colt Diesel, the company continues to prove its leadership position with a market share of 53.1 percent in (Jan-Dec) 2013.
The company has sold over 280,000 units in Indonesia across light-medium and heavy duty segments. Rigorous testing has been assessed under the most strenuous driving conditions to ensure maximum reliability of the trucks. The new Fuso trucks are sold in Kenya, Sri Lanka, Zambia, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Bangladesh, and Brunei, and are now on their way to Indonesia.
A new business model creates synergies by bundling the strengths of the Japan-based Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corp. and DICV under the umbrella of Daimler Trucks Asia.
