The brand put in place multiple measures to contain the virus at its factory, and said that utmost care was governed towards all its stakeholders. The company continues to fully support employees, suppliers, dealer networks, and customers during the current Coronavirus situation in the country.

Daimler India Commercial Vehicles has also announced free vehicle health checks and warranty extensions for its customer base across the country. The brand has partnered with the Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited in order to extend support to stranded drivers for basic requirements such as secured parking, water, fuel, restrooms and shelter.

The brand has also laid down its own safety protocols, and has launched awareness campaigns for its employees, suppliers, and dealer networks via instructional videos and web-based training sessions.
