Daimler India launch Fuso trucks in Bangladesh
Daimler India Commercial Vehicles Pvt. Ltd has announced the launch of its DICV-made Fuso trucks in Bangladesh. This is DICV’s 6th market since exports began in May 2013. The new DICV-made FUSO trucks are designed and developed to meet Bangaldesh’ need for reliable and robust trucks.
Authorized local distributor in Bangladesh for MFTBC, Rangs Motors will sell the trucks. Prior to starting business in Bangladesh, DICV-made Fuso truck exports from Chennai have begun in Kenya, Sri Lanka, Zambia, Tanzania and Zimbabwe. Additional markets in Africa and Asia are next in line. Fuso trucks made at DICV‘s Oragadam plant comprise 5 models in the Medium/Heavy-duty (25 – 49 tonnes referred to as ‘FJ’, ‘FO’ & ‘FZ’) and Medium-duty (9 – 16 tonnes referred to as ‘FA’ & ‘FI’) segment.
Fuso’s growth potential in Africa will exceed its presence in over 35 markets at present. Q1 2014 has almost doubled to to 2,000 units when compared to Q1 2013. Fuso’s new truck range offers customers a wider commercial vehicle range.
Fuso’s growth plans will be supported by adding additional markets. The Asia Business Model spur introduced in 2013 is intended to spurt Daimler Trucks Asia growth momentum in future markets in addition. All this on the back of synergies gotten from working Japan-based Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corp. (MFTBC) and Daimler India Commercial Vehicles (DICV) together under the Daimler Trucks Asia aegis.
