The company promotes common components and new model releases in developed and emerging markets



Daimler Commercial Vehicle's Unit Sales Volume Daimler AG's commercial vehicle business is comprised of three divisions: Daimler Trucks, Mercedes-Benz Vans and Daimler Buses.

 In 2012 Daimler Trucks expanded sales to 461,954 units, up 8.5% from 2011, while Mercedes-Benz Vans decreased sales by 4.5% y/y to 252,418 units and Daimler Buses dropped sales by 19.3% y/y to 32,088 units.

 Daimler Trucks increased its unit sales as growth in the NAFTA region and Asia compensated the drop in Western Europe. Unit sales decreased in Western Europe by 5.5% from 61,000 units in 2011 to 58,000 units in 2012. Conversely, they increased in the NAFTA region by 18.4% y/y from 114,000 units to 135,000 units and in Asia by 21.3% y/y from 135,000 units to 164,000 units. In Latin America excluding Mexico, sales fell by 25.4% to 46,000 units from the previous year's brisk sales of 62,000 units.

 Mercedes-Benz Vans dropped unit sales in Western Europe by 7.5% y/y to 165,000 units in 2012 and in Asia by 25.6% y/y from 18,000 units to 13,000 units in 2012.

 Daimler Buses suffered from lower demands of buses in Latin America, where its sales fell from 25,000 units in 2011 to 18,000 units in 2012.

 2015 sales targets are 500,000 units for Daimler Trucks, 400,000 units for Mercedes-Benz Vans and 40,000 units for Daimler Buses.

 Daimler plans to promote use of common components in vehicles, reduce production costs through creating a global network among its production facilities, upgrade and increase models, and enhance sales in the existing markets as well as entering new markets.

Daimler Commercial Vehicle Divisions: 2012 Sales and 2013 forecasts

 In 2012 Daimler Trucks sold 461,954 units, up 8.5% y/y. Unit sales declined in Western Europe as well as in Brazil, where Euro 5 replaced Euro 3 in 2012 and the rush demand for Euro 3 compatible trucks at the end of 2011 negatively affected sales in 2012. In the first half of 2012, sales expanded in the NAFTA region due to increased demand for replacement trucks. In Japan sales also increased in 2012 as a result of higher demand from the extensive reconstruction work due to the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011.

 Mercedes-Benz Vans decreased sales by 4.5% y/y to 252,418, largely affected by low sales in its major market, Western Europe.  Daimler Buses dropped sales by 19.3% due to weak sales in Latin America.

 According to Daimler, growth in the global truck market in 2013 is expected to be driven mainly by the demand in China, recovering from the drop in 2012. In North America, the OEM anticipates a decline of 5 to 10% because of the fiscal problems in the United States. As for the European truck market, it also expect demand to fall by up to 5% due to the ongoing weak economic environment. The Japanese market is assumed to be at about the prior-year level, due to the demand from reconstruction work. As for the Brazilian market, it expects 10% growth, judging from better economic prospects.

 Daimler Trucks, therefore anticipates moderate or even negative development in unit sales in early 2013 due to the difficult economic situation in its key markets, however, the introduction of Euro 6 scheduled for 2014 is expected to stimulate the purchase of the compatible trucks later in the year.

 Mercedes-Benz Vans plans to increase its unit sales by new model launches, market development outside Europe and expanded local production including collaboration with GAZ Group in Russia.

 Daimler Buses assumes increased unit sales through the continued "GLOBE 2013" business plan, aggressive sales through new model launches and demand growth in Brazil in advance of the soccer World Cup in 2014 and the Olympic Games in 2016.

Developed markets: Germany, the U.S. and Japan

 Daimler is launching models compatible to European emission standards and other environmental regulations, including the Canter Eco Hybrid released in May 2012, in response to the demand for environmentally friendly vehicles. The OEM manufactures powertrains at Detroit Diesel Corp. in the U.S. and plans to establish the global production network in order to reduce cost and improve production efficiency.


Launching Setra Comfort Class 500  In May 2012, Daimler Buses introduced a new Setra coach, the Comfort Class 500. In the fall of 2012, the two-axle S515 HD, two/three-axle S516 HD and three-axle S517 HD models were launched. Compatible to the Euro 6, which is to be effective in 2014, the model combines lightweight and stiffness. Mercedes-Benz 10.7-liter OM470 engine (428 hp/2,100 Nm) has improved its fuel efficiency and performance.
Launching green vehicles  In September 2012, Daimler exhibited a total of 70 vehicles at the 64th IAA Commercial Vehicles show in Hanover. Mercedes-Benz all-electric 7-seater minibus, the Vito E-Cell crewbus and the Sprinter E-CELL commercial van made their debut. The Fuso Canter Eco Hybrid compact truck was presented for the first time in Europe.
Personnel downsizing in commercial vehicle division  According to a report, Daimler planned to cut 800 non-production jobs of its commercial vehicle division in Germany in February 2013.


The United States

Production operation upgrades  In December 2012, Daimler unveiled a USD 120 million investment in the Redford plant of Detroit Diesel Corp., its engine-manufacturing subsidiary in Michigan. It plans to produce the Detroit DT12 automated manual transmission and the new Detroit DD15 asymmetric turbocharged engine. The plant currently supplies powertrains for the Freightliner and Western Star brands' commercial vehicles. This new investment will enable Daimler to manufacture commercial vehicle powertrains in-house in North America, which should reduce costs.
Reorganization of bus business systems  In March 2012, Daimler announced its plan to reorganize the bus business systems. It will discontinue the Orion North American bus brand to focus on the Setra brand. Upon completion of production for existing orders for the Orion buses, the OEM will shut down the Mississauga plant in Ontario, Canada by the end of 2013. The plant in Oriskany, NY will continue operations limited to replacement parts production and services to existing Orion customers. The OEM will continue to export German-made Setra brand models to the North American market.
Layoff planned at Freightliner brand facilities  In February 2013, Daimler decided to lay off 1,300 employees in the Freightliner brand business, one of its commercial vehicle segments in North America. In January 2012, the OEM had announced that 1,100 new jobs would be created at its plant in Cleveland by September 2012 in order to address the increasing replacement demand for heavy-duty trucks.

New facilities  In April 2012, Daimler opened a new plant in Oragadam, the suburb of Chennai. Vehicle production at its Pune plant as well as R&D has been transferred to the new plant. The total investment is 44 billion rupees (over 700 million Euros approximately) for both manufacturing and R&D divisions.
