After years of slumping demand for heavy-duty trucks and buses
in Brazil, there is a possibility that growth will accelerate
there next year, Matthias Gruendler told journalists on Monday.
The division, which also includes heavy-duty commercial vehicle
brands MAN <MANG.DE> and Sweden's Scania, has a long-term
operating margin target of 9 percent compared with 6.1 percent
last year, chief executive Andreas Renschler said.
