Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation launched the robust Daimler India Commercial Vehicles (DICV) made FUSO trucks in Bangladesh. This move also marks the companies 6th strategic market since the start of exports in May 2013.
Bangladesh is one of the key markets in Asia for FUSO trucks, as the products are designed and developed to meet the growing demand for reliable and robust trucks.
The FUSO trucks will be sold through the exclusive dealer, Rangs Motors Limited, an authorized local distributor in Bangladesh of MFTBC. These trucks are already present in the markets of Kenya, Sri Lanka, Zambia, Tanzania and Zimbabwe with more markets to follow in Africa and Asia.

Daimler Trucks Asia expects to gain additional growth momentum in the future markets on top of the current existing markets from its new Asia Business Model introduced in 2013.
