20 YEARS MAN TRUCKNOLOGY GENERATION – THE ROAD IS OUR TERRITORY.

The Trucknology Generation is at home on the road. Right from the start, it has always adapted to the requirements of the customer and has orientated itself on ever-increasing transport and traffic volumes. To date, this has resulted in a twenty-year success story with the best commercial vehicles that MAN has ever built.

This means that each MAN TG stands for consistent optimisation, customer-focused innovation and legendary reliability. And this story has great potential to continue. Read about what has happened up to now:

MAN Trucknology Generation milestones

2000

On your marks: Right on time for the new millennium, production of the new MAN Trucknology Generation starts with the MAN TGA in Munich and Salzgitter, later enhanced with a further production plant in Niepołomice near Krakow. Get set, go!

2004

The newly-developed D20 common rail engine generation was introduced in 2004 and the D26 in 2007. This captivated customers with an economical and hence environmentally-friendly, electronically-controlled injection process.

2005

Not “one for all” but one for each requirement. Namely, the MAN TGL and MAN TGM, our new light and medium-weight truck generation with cabs in sizes C, L, LX.

2006

Yes, the road is our territory. But sometimes we have to leave the beaten path. No problem: With the introduction of the MAN HydroDrive® switchable front-axle drive for more traction on demand.

2007

Two MAN TGA successors are the new joint leaders in the Trucknology team: The MAN TGS with cabs in M, L and LX and the MAN TGX with cabs in XL, XLX and XXL. And the flagship: The MAN TGX V8 with 680 HP. Still have questions?

2010

For the 10th anniversary of Trucknology, MAN presents the MAN TGX EfficientLine – consistently designed for a reduction in operating costs: Optimum aerodynamics with side panelling, without air horns, Air Pressure Management, new intarder generation, top speed restricted to 85 km/h. That results in a saving. Up to 3 litres of diesel per 100 kilometres!

2014

More power per cylinder, less consumption per kilometre – in the MAN TGX, the V8 is succeeded by the newly developed D38 in-line six-cylinder engine with 15.2 litre cylinder capacity – outstanding performance with a choice of 520, 560 or 640 PS.

2016

“No, that’s no van. That’s an MAN!” With this motto, MAN presents the junior of the Trucknology Generation, the MAN TGE, to a broad public audience at the commercial vehicle trade fair in Hanover. Today, it is out on the roads as a box van, a flatbed or a panel van – a “jack-of-all-trades” and a real MAN at the same time.”

2018

Going electric. At IAA 2018 in Hanover, we presented the first fully-electric MAN eTruck based on the TGM for urban freight logistics. And also a global first: the fully electrically-driven MAN eTGE 4.140 with 160 kilometre range and a payload of 1 to 1.75 t – an electric lion for logistics of the “final mile”.

2019

Up to now, the latest chapter in the Trucknology Generation story: The new D1556 engine with 9 litre cylinder capacity and 230 kg more payload than the predecessor model series – a new engine generation with further-optimised fuel efficiency, exhaust gas purification with CRT filter and SCR catalytic converter.

2019

The summit of the 20-year TG success story so far is the limited special edition MAN EVOLION – probably the best that can be made from chrome, leather and innovation.

The anniversary sticker for 20 years MAN Trucknology Generation, a success story of which we are particularly proud. If you have or drive an MAN TG truck or MAN TGE, we would be delighted if you marked it with our sticker to highlight it as part of this incredible success story. Manufacturer and drivers are closely connected via the vehicles. By building better products we can help to make your work easier, safer and ultimately more relaxed. Trucknology stands for technology that has really made trucks better, and that is still making trucks better today.
