Managing Director and CEO, Daimler India Commercial Vehicles, Erich Nesselhauf said, "Air Conditioning in trucks is not a comfort or luxury feature - it can help prevent serious accidents as it helps the drivers to stay fit and focused during long hours even in the most adverse environmental conditions."

Commenting on the proposed blower based system, Nesselhauf said, "The only advantage of this blower system is that it is cheap - it ends right there."

He added, "There is technically no way how it could bring the cabin temperature down below outside temperature, so it does not provide any meaningful benefits to keep the driver alert and fit. In fact, a blower unit will actually increase the temperature and dust level inside the cabin."

BharatBenz has been retailing AC trucks throughout its 9 to 49-tonne range from day one. The company is trying to remove the misconception that AC in a truck leads to additional fuel consumption.

The customer feedback from the BharatBenz AC truck owners indicates that the AC trucks cover more kilometer per day due to less driver fatigue, which adds to the overall profit to the owners. Also, the AC will make the workplace safer for drivers, especially during long distance hauling.
