Current Management strategy for Daimler India for Commercial vehicles will be very crucial in view of tough competition in terms of product up-gradation by Tata, AL & Volvo-Eicher, besides up-gradation on “after sales support” by existing players. Daimler India also need to cross the Break Even point ASAP, as they have initially tried to match the vehicle prices with existing players, rather than commanding premium for better brand & establishing the concept of value for money. This may also be a tough task for Daimler India now, as justification on higher prices at this stage may face stiff resistance from the market, which is highly price sensitive, besides the discount war, which is expected to continue by existing players. In my opinion, Daimler India, hence need to formulate a strategy for select organised market, focusing on specific segments, who are looking for better productivity & time bound project completion, rather than vehicle cost. Such approach may address both the issues related to pricing & volume and help them reach the Break Even point, at a rapid pace.
