Mercedes-Benz introduces truck stimulus offer

Truckmaker joins efforts to jumpstart commercial vehicle market

Mercedes-Benz introduces truck stimulus offer
The offer is valid for on-highway models purchased before July 31


Mercedes-Benz Trucks is the latest brand to incentive vehicle purchases, unveiling a 90-day ‘Drive Now, Pay Later’ promotion.

Provided by Mercedes-Benz Financial, the program offers purchasers of a Mercedes-Benz on-highway truck a 90-day repayment-free period, "allowing customers to focus on their business and generate revenue without the need to make repayments for the period", a company statement says.

Valid for on-highway models purchased before July 31 and pending other terms and conditions, eligible customers can defer payments for two months, while Mercedes-Benz will pay the third monthly payment on their behalf.

"The Mercedes-Benz Actros is well established as a truck that saves money every kilometre it travels with remarkable fuel efficiency, long service intervals and advanced safety technology," Mercedes-Benz Trucks director Andrew Assimo says.

"This offer represents another way that Mercedes-Benz Trucks can help our customers succeed in a difficult environment."

Mercedes-Benz says the program comes with a free Best Basic service plan offer that covers eligible new trucks for five years or 800,000km, whichever comes first.

Actros models also come with 12 months’ free access to locally-developed telematics program MB Telematics.

Customers may also qualify for the federal instant asset write-offs or 50 per cent accelerated depreciation deductions for applicable purchases. 

"Mercedes-Benz Financial is also able to offer customers a range of financial truck ownership solutions including a popular program called Agility Guaranteed Buy-Back," the company says.

"It guarantees the future value of the truck based on the selected term and kilometre allowance and means that when the agreement comes to end the customer has the option to trade-in, retain or return the truck to Mercedes-Benz Finance at the guaranteed future value amount."

Under the current service plan offer, customers also have the option of upgrading to the Complete Service Plan at a reduced rate.
