MAN has written its own history with its development from a small assembly plant to one of the leading international suppliers of commercial vehicles. Today, trucks and buses with the silver lion can be seen on roads across the globe. MAN has had to overcome some major challenges on the road to international success. Throughout it all, the company has continued to make a decisive contribution to the development of passenger and goods transportation – a fine tradition, which will also continue into the next 100 years. Take a journey through over a century of commercial vehicle construction with MAN.
The 1970s and 1980s saw MAN expanding, predominantly internationally. The Munich-based commercial vehicle manufacturer also produced and sold trucks and buses in South Africa, the United States and Turkey. They were also able to achieve a considerable production capacity in Austria thanks to the takeover of the ÖAF, Gräf & Stift and Steyr brands.
With the G90, M90 and F90, MAN established a vehicle family consisting of a series of lightweight, medium-weight and heavy-duty trucks, which is still around today in a similar form.
