Daimler Truck has reported significantly increased unit sales in 2022.

With 520,291 vehicles, 14.2% more trucks and buses were delivered than in the previous year, despite bottlenecks in the availability of components, the company said.

The Trucks North America segment significantly increased its unit sales by 15.2% to 186,779 units, driven by a high product demand. The segment Mercedes-Benz also recorded a strong growth in unit sales to 166,369 units (+17.7%). Trucks Asia increased its unit sales by 8.8% compared to the previous year to 155,967 units. Daimler Buses recorded a strong sales result of 24,041 units (+28.3%).

“We have concluded our first year as an independent company with an expected strong sales result underlining our strong market position,” said Martin Daum, CEO of Daimler Truck Holding AG.

“Despite the challenging macro-economic situation in 2022, all our segments could increase the sales of trucks and buses. This is a joint success of the entire Daimler Truck team.”
