Sreeram Venkateswaran, President and Chief Business Officer, Domestic Sales and Customer Service, Daimler India Commercial Vehicles said, "Our pre-owned business initiatives BharatBenz Exchange and BharatBenz Certified, which offer customers new truck exchange and pre-owned truck purchase, respectively, account for 15% of our overall sales per year. In addition to new truck and bus sales, our pre-owned business initiatives are not just significant for our operations but also provide aspiring customers the opportunity to own safe and reliable BharatBenz commercial vehicles throughout their lifecycle."
BharatBenz’s highly durable trucks are a lucrative business proposition for customers who wish to buy pre-owned trucks. Nearly 2000 BharatBenz trucks have been driven for over a million kilometers each and are still serving customers across India. This kind of durability and reliability are built into the engineering and design of BharatBenz trucks before they are retailed thereby becoming an aspiration for a section of customers who would prefer adding pre-owned BharatBenz trucks to their fleets, the company explained in a press release.
To enable this, DICV introduced the BharatBenz Exchange program in 2020 to offer a credible opportunity to Indian customers for buying a BharatBenz in exchange for any other used truck.
