Daimler Buses at a Glance
Welcome to Daimler Buses!
"Daimler Buses. The leading provider of buses and mobility solutions" – that is our slogan with regard to the shaping and further development of bus mobility around the globe.
And in this regard we can look back on a successful 2018 business year at Daimler Buses: with a significant increase in turnover compared to the previous year, we have maintained our market leadership in our most important core markets of Europe, Mexico, Brazil and Argentina. And we have also grown considerably in new markets. This shows that, thanks to the Mercedes-Benz, Setra and BharatBenz brands as well as related services on offer, we are excellently equipped for business the world over.
With the market launch of our fully electric Mercedes-Benz eCitaro, new digital services and the new minibus generation, we have also made some important steps in the direction of the future. Since last year, battery-driven vehicles have been complementing our mix of drives for classic city bus operations. The first vehicles are already on the road as part of local public transport operations and the manufacture of the eCitaro is highly integrated in series production. In order to facilitate the changeover to electric fleets for our customers, we offer comprehensive support in the form of our eMobility consulting.
We have also set ourselves ambitious targets for the coming year with a clear strategic focus. Firstly: strong core business and growth in new markets. Secondly: we want to increase our technological leadership whilst maintaining the efficiency, safety and comfort of urban buses and touring coaches. In doing so, we are keeping new technologies such as connectivity driving firmly in our sights. And thirdly: business excellence with an efficient international production network. Together with the right partners, we intend to generate additional expertise.
That means that, in future too, we will continue with our clearly defined aim to further develop and shape (bus) mobility: we will continue to supply our customers with the best possible comprehensive offers – comprising vehicles, services, advice and mobility solutions.
Yours, Till Oberwörder
