Eicher Trucks & Buses opens new 3S dealership in Bengaluru

Eicher Trucks & Buses, part of VE Commercial Vehicles, inaugurated its new 3S (Sales, Service & Spares) dealership facility in Bengaluru, Karnataka. The state-of-the-art facility has been set up in association with Agustya to provide the best-in-class service support to Eicher customers. Strategically located in Nelamangala area on the Pune-Bengaluru National Highway, the dealership will add significant value to Eicher trucks and buses plying on the route. The dealership also has opened two Eicher Select Sales outlets located on Langford road and Mysore road. Presently, Eicher has 296 dealerships across the country, catering to the customer needs across the truck and bus segment in the 5-55T range. With this dealership, Eicher now has 27 dealerships in Karnataka, including fourteen 3S facilities in the state and nine dealerships in and around Bengaluru. The dealership inauguration was attended by a large number of customers, financiers and other dignitaries from all over the city.

From a business perspective, Bengaluru’s urban and rural activity constitutes over half of the Total Industry Volume (TIV) of Karnataka. Furthermore, expansion of ecommerce and logistics in the area has also boosted sales of light and medium duty trucks. Over the years, Eicher has developed a robust presence in Bengaluru with a market share of over 32 per cent in light and medium duty trucks, 25 per cent in buses and 6 per cent in heavy-duty trucks.

Commenting on the occasion, Vinod Aggarwal, Managing Director and CEO, VE Commercial Vehicles said, “It is a moment of great pride for us to inaugurate the state-of-the-art facility in Bengaluru, which is going to be a one stop solution for any kind of aftermarket support required by our customers in that region. The region offers best-in-class infrastructure development, strong rural economy and a high potential for ecommerce and last mile delivery segments, making it a perfect location for a 3S facility. Being an IT and industrial hub, the region also presents with a huge opportunity for staff transportation, which will further help Eicher to expand its Bus portfolio.”
