BharatBenz is taking clean initiative in promoting BSIV vehicles, showing its interest in pollution less transport in India.
Daimler India Commercial Vehicles, a subsidiary of Germany’s Daimler AG and the maker of BharatBenz vehicles in India, said that BS4 will bring much needed improvements in terms of air quality, to the benefit of the people and the environment.
Erich Nesselhauf, Managing Director and CEO, Daimler India Commercial Vehicles, said, “Our entire BharatBenz portfolio has been available also in BS4 since more than a year already and feedback from several hundred customers has been very positive.”
In the past few months, Nesselhauf said the company has not only aggressively phased out our BS3 production and stocks but also begun production of BS4 in full swing.
From an economic perspective, he claimed it should also not be overlooked that BSIV delivers fuel economy advantages compared to BSIII. This helps to reduce India’s dependency on oil imports.
