Daimler Buses
The Daimler Buses division with its brands Mercedes-Benz and Setra continues to be the world’s leading manufacturer in its core markets in the segment of buses above 8 tons. The product range supplied by Daimler Buses comprises city and intercity buses, coaches and bus chassis.
Numerous new products and the systematic continuation of the “GLOBE 2013” growth and efficiency program contributed to the turnaround at Daimler Buses. Higher unit sales and further efficiency progress led to a significant earnings improvement in financial year 2013. The division thus confirmed its leadership in the core markets of Western Europe and Latin America. During the year under review, the division focused on converting the entire European product range to Euro VI-compliant exhaust-gas technology. Daimler Buses set new standards in the luxury coach segment with the presentation of the new Setra TopClass 500.
Earnings significantly above prior-year level. Worldwide, Daimler Buses sold 33,700 buses and bus chassis in 2013 (2012: 32,100). With this growth of 5%, the division confirmed its leading position in its core markets for buses with a gross vehicle weight of over eight tons. Growth impetus was provided above all by our core markets Western Europe and Latin America. Revenue improved by 4% to €4.1 billion. EBIT of plus €124 million was significantly better than in the previous year (2012: minus €221 million). In 2012, expenses of €155 million were incurred for the reorganization of the North American and European business systems. Those measures and other measures taken in Latin America adversely affected EBIT by €39 million in 2013.
