Recommended Posts

Daimler plans to start building the Mercedes-Benz Actros heavy truck in China by the end of the decade.

Seeking to expand its role in the world's largest truck market, Daimler is targeting a five-digit production number for the Actros, according to Daimler Trucks Chief Executive Wolfgang Bernhard.

The decision is part of a push to increase Daimler’s global sales around 40 percent by the end of the decade.

Daimler currently has a joint venture with China's Beiqi Foton Motor.

The two companies are planning to invest a three-digit multi-million amount in local production of the Actros, and Daimler alone wants to set up 200 dealer and service facilities
