The EEV (Enhanced Environmentally Friendly Vehicle) compliant natural gas engines with an output of 170 kW (231 hp) to 205 kW (279 hp) will from now on complement the Kamaz engine lineup. “Our modular component system provides the right solutions for our partner. Through our technological expertise and skill, we are helping Kamaz to expand its strong position on the Russian market,” said Stefan E. Buchner, responsible for global powertrain, procurement and manufacturing engineering at Daimler Trucks.
The two companies, whose partnership was established in 2008, are steadily intensifying their already close cooperation. Last June, Daimler and Kamaz announced the signing of a licensing agreement covering the supply of Mercedes-Benz Axor cabs, whereby production will be gradually localized.
