Daimler India Commercial Vehicles (DICV), a hundred per cent wholly owned subsidiary of Daimler AG, Stuttgart, Germany along with Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation, Japan (MFTBC), a Daimler company, launched its strategic new products under the brand FUSO, manufactured at DICV's manufacturing plant at Oragadam, near Chennai. The new FUSO trucks are based on the Daimler Trucks Technical Platforms and will be exported to important markets in Asia and Africa. This range provides the FUSO brand fresh impetus in addressing product segments that were not available earlier. The FUSO trucks range manufactured at DICV's Oragadam plant comprise five models spanning Medium/Heavy-duty (25-49 tonne referred to as 'FJ', 'FO' & 'FZ') and Light/Medium-duty (9-16 tonne referred to as FA and FI). These trucks will be exported and sold through the FUSO network to 15 markets in Asia and Africa. The first launch markets will be Sri Lanka in June 2013, followed by Bangladesh, Zambia, Kenya and Brunei later this year.
