According to a company release, since the start of BSVI sales in April 2020, BharatBenz’s has almost doubled its market share and increased its network to 250 touchpoints across India. In line with its innovation-driven market focus and commitment to offer customized solutions, BharatBenz’s new set of commercial vehicles are designed to provide unmatched reliability and safety. The company today unveiled six new trucks named as BSafe Express (reefer truck for transportation of vaccines), 1917R, 4228R Tanker, 1015R+, 42T M-Cab, and 2828 Construction vehicle.
Speaking on the occasion, Satyakam Arya, MD & CEO Daimler India Commercial Vehicles, said, “In today’s rapidly-changing environment, it is vital to meet the dynamic needs of society.

Both new and current customers will be delighted by our updated portfolio offering the industry’s best TCO, as well as our new loyalty program designed to reward the customers for their trust placed in brand BharatBenz.”
BharatBenz Trucks: The 1917R is available in 20, 22, 24, and 31-foot load span options, which are ideal for a wide range of on-highway applications and great for freight movement for sectors like FMCG and e-commerce.
The 4228R features an innovative M cab, granting it one of the longest loading spans for fully built trucks in its class. The M Cab retains all the safety and comfort features of BharatBenz’s proven factory fitted cabin. Making an additional room for the load span to grow, this allows overall loading span of 31 ft, suitable for parcel and container applications.
Additionally, a special variant of 4228R with a fully-built 34-kiloliter tanker has been designed with a wide range of safety features, making the vehicle a preferred choice for POL applications.
The 1015R+ stands as a classic example of BharatBenz’s technological prowess. The earlier 1015R has received an upgrade in its powertrain with a stronger G85 gearbox that strengthens its reliability and gradeability.
Meanwhile, BharatBenz’s iconic 2828C is now available with 22 cubic meter loading capacity refreshed with Covid-protection features to cater to coal transportation. It comes with the longest wheelbase in its class, making it the most stable coal carrier in the market.
