Daimler India Commercial Vehicles Pvt. Ltd. (DICV), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Daimler AG, Stuttgart, Germany, on Monday announced that its entire range of above 9-49 tonne trucks will now be available in Bharat Stage IV variants nationwide.

The company said that with a new range of buses set to be launched in September 2015, DICV is also offering the Bharat Stage IV variant for the school and staff models in the front engine 9T bus product range.

"In alignment with the governmental emission regulations, DICV will meet the norms using system derived from Bluetec technology proven in Daimler Vehicles in many markets over a decade.

DICV has tested this technology in Indian operating conditions for over a million kilometers before offering to customers. Apart from meeting the stringent emission regulations by reducing toxic gas levels within the proposed Bharat Stage IV norms, the trucks and buses will also provide better fuel economy to customers," it said in a statement.

Erich Nesselhauf, managing director and CEO, Daimler India Commercial Vehicles, said in a statement said that the company is ready with its entire range of trucks adhering to Bharat Stage IV norms to capture a larger market share.

"In India, pollution has been a rising concern and moving to Bharat Stage IV across the country has been the need of the hour. Our access to the worldwide Daimler technology pool helped us to cut time and cost to implement this in a fast and efficient manner."
