Daimler Trucks is set to reach its sales target for 2013 and deliver more trucks than in any year since 2006. Despite having to contend with a comparatively difficult market environment, the world’s leading commercial vehicle manufacturer benefited from its global presence and from its technologically leading product range that is customized for each region.
In the first 11 months of the year, the division delivered 433,600 vehicles of the Mercedes-Benz, Fuso, Freightliner, Western Star (4700 pictured), Thomas Built Buses and BharatBenz brands. As a result, sales were two percent higher than in the same period last year, when 424,000 units were sold.
Based on first data for December, Daimler Trucks expects to close 2013 with an encouraging sales growth for the full year. The final global sales figures will be presented at Daimler’s annual press conference on February 6, 2014.
