Daimler reports increased sales in 2023

Daimler says that this happened despite supply bottlenecks in important regions.

Daimler Truck recently reported its sales figures for 2023, showing that its sales increased in 2023, from 520,291 trucks and buses sold in 2022 to 526,053 in 2023. Daimler says that this happened despite supply bottlenecks in important regions. The company also sold 3,443 units of battery-electric vehicles, 277% more than in the previous year (914 units).

The Trucks North America segment increased its unit sales by 4% to 195,014 units. The segment Mercedes-Benz sold 158,511 units (-5%), caused by a weak market development in Brazil. Trucks Asia increased its unit sales by 3% compared to the previous year to 161,171 units. Daimler Buses recorded a result of 26,168 units (+9%).

“In 2023 we have again increased our sales despite a continuously challenging supply situation which prevented even higher sales,” said Martin Daum, CEO of Daimler Truck Holding AG. “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.”

For the individual segments as well as the Daimler Truck Group as a whole, the unit sales are as follows:
