Daimler Truck again Increases Group Unit Sales in 2023
Daimler Truck once again increased its unit sales worldwide in 2023 despite supply bottlenecks in important regions. 526,053 trucks and buses have been sold (2022: 520,291 units). The Company has sold 3,443 units of battery-electric vehicles, 277 percent more than in the previous year (914 units).
The Trucks North America segment increased its unit sales by four percent to 195,014 units. The segment Mercedes-Benz sold 158,511 units (-five percent), caused by a weak market development in Brazil. Trucks Asia increased its unit sales by three percent compared to the previous year to 161,171 units. Daimler Buses recorded a strong sales result of 26,168 units (+9 percent).
Martin Daum, CEO of Daimler Truck Holding AG: “In 2023 we have again increased our sales despite a continuously challenging supply situation which prevented even higher sales. We are very confident of achieving our financial ambitions for 2023. Our sales of battery-electric vehicles more than tripled compared to the previous year. We have expanded our product portfolio of battery electric vehicles for our customers in 2023 to ten different models. This is the foundation for future growth and underlines our aspiration to lead the transportation of the future.”
