Daimler Trucks increased its worldwide deliveries in the first 11 months of 2017 by 12% year-on-year to 422 500 units, despite the continuation of disparate market conditions. Until the end of November 2017, more trucks were delivered than in the whole of 2016. In full-year 2016, the Daimler truck division sold approximately 415 100 vehicles of the Mercedes-Benz, FUSO, Freightliner, Western Star, Thomas Built Buses and BharatBenz brands worldwide.

Successful year for Daimler Trucks

On the basis of initial December 2017 data, Daimler Trucks assumes that it will end the full year with unit sales in the magnitude of 465 000 vehicles (2016: 415 100). The final sales figures will be available at Daimler's annual press conference on February 1, 2018.

“For full-year 2017, we at Daimler Trucks anticipate unit sales in the magnitude of 465 000 trucks – significantly more than in the previous year and significantly more than we expected at the beginning of 2017. This is only possible with leading products and an excellent international team – especially with an ongoing situation of weak tailwinds from our markets. I thank all our employees for their outstanding efforts,” states Martin Daum, member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG, responsible for Trucks & Buses.

“In everything that we do, our focus is on our customers. In order to offer them the best products and solutions, we work continuously on innovations. We used the year 2017 to work hard on efficient, electric, automated and connected trucks. In the same way, we will be sustainably successful in 2018 – the year of the IAA Commercial Vehicles show – and beyond.”
