kscarbel2 Posted November 29, 2016 Share Posted November 29, 2016 Reuters / November 28, 2016 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 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
