Indian Government is trying to enforce new emission norms that will improve pollution levels. They want all manufacturers to adopt Bharat Stage IV emission norm as soon as possible.
Bharat Benz has confirmed that their entire range of commercial vehicles will be Bharat Stage IV ready. All of their commercial vehicles will adhere to strict emission norms that will be made compulsory from 2017.
Erich Nesselhauf, M.D. & CEO, Daimler India Commercial Vehicles expressed, "We are ready with our entire range of trucks adhering to Bharat Stage IV norms to capture a larger market share."
He further added, "In India, pollution has been a rising concern and moving to Bharat Stage IV across the country has been the need of the hour. Our access to the worldwide Daimler technology pool helped us to cut time and cost to implement this in a fast and efficient manner."
Bharat Benz's range of 9 to 49 tonne trucks will be Bharat Stage IV compliant and will be available across India. They will use Bluets technology developed by Daimler, which was already in use in several other markets.
They will be launching their new range of buses in India during September, 2015. Bharat Benz buses will also be Bharat Stage IV compliant, which will sport their 9T front engine range.
