Its commitment to innovation, technology and responsive customer relationships allow customers to “Run Smart”. The Sterling brand is the epitome of reliability. The product lineup extends from light-duty Class 3 vehicles to heavy-duty Class 8 trucks, and the range of applications is similarly diverse. The trucks are used for regional transport, construction work, municipal applications, and delivery runs. The nature of Sterling is succinctly expressed by the brand’s advertising slogan: “All day. Every day”. The Western Star brand offers premium-class heavy-duty trucks, primarily for use by owner-operators or small fleets. Western Star serves market niches such as special and construction site applications as well as long-haul transport. With their striking exteriors and preference for off-road applica- tions, the vehicles are without a doubt “serious trucks for serious truckers”. 12 Global brand variety of Daimler Trucks Global brand variety of Daimler Trucks 13
  9. 9. Global Excellence Management of Market Cycles The first initiative — “Management of Market Cycles” – is designed to buffer the impact of cyclical developments typical for the sector on Daimler Trucks, thus ensuring the division’s long-term profitability. The commercial vehicle sector is subject to particularly strong cycles which vary accord- ing to the specific use of the vehicles for business purposes, vehicle fleet life cycles exchange rate effects, the development of the global economy, and emissions legislation. The goal is to ensure sustained profitability in all market situations in the future by managing the fluctuation of market cycles Global Excellence and the continued pusuit of the policy for “profit margins instead of sales The “Global Excellence” program has been part of the Daimler Trucks stra- volume”. tegy since 2005.

  10. 10. Further expansion planned The alternative drive systems from Daimler Trucks and Daimler Buses are now scheduled to be used by customers in further product segments and regions. In North America, Freightliner will manufacture 1,500 M2 hybrid trucks in the next three years future, and Thomas Built Buses will produce hybrid versions of their legendary school buses. In the meantime, the second- generation hybrid bus has been launched on the market in Japan under the name Mitsubishi Fuso Aero Star Eco Hybrid. And in Europe, Mercedes-Benz handed over the first Atego BlueTec Hybrid delivery truck for trial at the Shaping Future Transportation beginning of 2008. Also in 2008, the first Mercedes-Benz Citybus Citaro G In addition to passenger cars, commercial vehicles are also at the center BlueTec Hybrid will be brought into trail. of public attention in the debate regarding increasing emissions and the depletion of natural resources. Although the vehicles are indispensable for On the road to zero emissions economic growth and personal mobility, people are also demanding that they Through continuous further development, Daimler’s diesel engines have be as environmentally compatible as possible. As the leading developer of evolved into high-tech drive systems that will remain the chief means of technology in this field, Daimler is well prepared to take on this responsibility. commercial vehicle propulsion for many years to come. Diesel engines still have great potential, as evidenced by their steadily reduced emissions and Daimler Trucks is working hard on drastically reducing the fuel consumption continuously increasing fuel efficiency. In a series of development steps, and exhaust gas emissions of its commercial vehicles. emissions of particulates and nitrogen oxides have decreased by more than Daimler’s broad-based commitment here as the world’s leading manufacturer 90% on average since 1990 alone. of commercial vehicles is underscored by its “Shaping Future Transporta- tion” initiative, which was launched late last year with the presentation of Mercedes-Benz trucks and buses equipped with state-of-the-art BlueTec 16 trucks and buses from the Mercedes-Benz, Freightliner, Mitsubishi Fuso, diesel technology combine these environmental improvements with economic Orion, and Thomas Built Buses brands. benefits for the vehicle operator. That’s because BlueTec technology cuts fuel consumption considerably, compared to other exhaust treatment systems. The products included vehicles in customer use as well as world-premiere In the case of long-haul trucks, for example, the annual reduction amounts models for alternative drive systems and fuels. Hybrid technology plays to around 2,000 liters of fuel, or more than five tons of CO2 emissions.

Fuso, which are in widespread use by customers in the U.S. and Japan. Daimler is the global market leader for hybrid commercial vehicles, with some 1,600 Orion hybrid buses already on the road in North America and a further 1,200 vehicles on order. In addition, Daimler has delivered more than 160 Freightliner trucks and 350 buses and light trucks from Mitsubishi Fuso. If natural gas-powered Mercedes-Benz trucks and buses in Europe are added to the total, Daimler has already delivered well over 7,000 commercial vehicles equipped with alternative drive trains to customers who are now using them in their everyday operations. Daimler commercial vehicles marked with in the product list are from the Shaping Future Transportation initiative. 16 Shaping Future Transportation Shaping Future Transportation 17
