PACCAR’s DAF truck on display in India

Tuesday, January 10th, 2012

Bellevue’s PACCAR, the third largest heavy-duty truck manufacturer in the world, is currently displaying its DAF CF truck at the Delhi AutoExpo in New Delhi, India. The automotive show is the largest of its kind in the country, which is home to one of the fastest growing truck markets in the world. The auto show presents an excellent opportunity for PACCAR to showcase one of its most successful products to potential customers, dealers, and suppliers in India.

The DAF CF truck on display in India is equipped with a PACCAR 180-horsepower engine and is designed for tractor and vocational configurations. It is manufactured by the Dutch division of PACCAR, the leading truck manufacturer in Europe which sells its trucks to over 1,000 dealer locations worldwide.

PACCAR also established a new technical center in Pune, India last October in partnership with KPIT Cummins, a global IT consulting firm. The center is hoping to employ up to 200 employees and will focus on providing information technology and component sourcing to its global engineering and IT organizations.
