DIMO recently won a special award; “Mercedes-Benz Star Award – Best Van Fleet Sales – South East Asia – 2016” at the Mercedes-Benz Commercial Vehicle Conference held in Singapore from the 9th – 11th November 2016. This was awarded mainly for the growth in sales of Vito and Citan Vans in Sri Lanka, as well as the recent fleet sales order won by DIMO.
The highly versatile and professional Vito van in the 2.5–3.2 t GVW segment offers a broad range of outstanding features. Its payload is among the highest in its segment, while procurement and operating costs are low. The new Vito is also the first van in the mid-size segment to offer three different drive system variants and incorporates a broad range of innovative safety and assistance systems. The brand recognition for Mercedes-Benz is also highly influential when it comes to special fleet sales as it reflects the value of the brand.
The award was presented to Mr Shamal Fernando (Business Unit Manager – Mercedes-Benz Commercial Vehicles) by Mr Olaf Petersen (Vice President, Commercial Vehicles – Daimler South East Asia).
