MAN Truck & Bus begins selling the TGE
Advance orders exceed expectations
Munich, 1 March 2017: Six months after the launch at IAA in Hanover it’s finally time: MAN Truck & Bus will officially begin selling the new TGE from the start of March. With a wide variety of derivatives, the MAN TGE is aimed at all those who need a van or utility wagon with a permissible gross weight of between 3 and 5.5 tonnes in their daily working lives.
The new TGE makes MAN a full-range provider: MAN now has the right solution for any transport task. In addition to the closed delivery van and utility wagon with windows, the MAN TGE also offers an enhanced selec-tion of vehicle bodies, including new chassis with single and crew cabs. “The response to the new TGE has completely met our expectations, if not exceeded them. Not long after the IAA, we had already registered more than 1000 sales enquiries. Long-term MAN customers, in particular, are enthusiastic about the vehicle and are looking forward to getting everything from one trusted, reliable source in future,” says Dennis Affeld, Senior Vice President Sales Van at MAN Truck & Bus.
In future, customers will be able to choose from two wheelbases, three roof heights and three vehicle lengths. As such, cargo capacities of up to 18.4 cubic metres are possible depending on the delivery van combination. A bright LED-lit interior cargo space is included as standard. Depending on the permitted total weight, there is a choice between front-wheel, rear-wheel and all-wheel drive, all of which can be coupled with either a six-gear manually operated gearbox or an eight-gear automatic gearbox. The 1968 cm3-capacity diesel engines offer optimum efficiency, with four ver-sions available: 75 kW/102 hp, 90 kW/122 hp, 103 kW/140 hp and 130 kW/177 hp.
Various new safety and comfort features in the new MAN TGE protect the occupants and assist the driver. A large number of driver assistance sys-tems unrivalled in the C or D segment have been introduced for this very purpose. These include, for example, EBA (Emergency Brake Assist), fitted as standard, and the optional Adaptive Cruise Control. With a low cW value of 0.33, economical fuel consumption and low repair and maintenance costs, the new MAN TGE delivers an impressive total cost of ownership (TCO). And, on top of all this, you get a service that cover all bases, ranging from flexible repair and maintenance contracts, to extended warranties, through to a 24-hour breakdown service with our usual business customer focus i.e. flexible workshop appointments and extended opening times.
