In addition, research & development at the Steyr site are an integral part of the TRATON development network.
The launch of a new vehicle series is taking place in 2020. At the same time, the issue of e-mobility is being further expanded by the construction of an additional small series of e-trucks.

By the end of 2018 9 prototypes based on the TGM series with electric power built at the Steyr plant have been handed over to renowned Austrian companies which operate across Europe. These partners are now testing the vehicles in daily use. At the moment the issue of e-mobility is being further expanded by the construction of an additional small series of e-trucks.
The very latest organisational and logistics methods are applied to the manufacture of the entire light and medium truck series (two or three axles in 4x2, 6x2, 4x4 or 6x4 configuration, 110 to 250 Kw / 150 to 340 hp engines, 7.5 to 26 tonnes gross weight) at the MAN works in Steyr.
Steyr produces cabs for special vehicles and crew cabs for MAN’s production network. Cab manufacture extends from the production of modular cabs-in-white-components including priming to complete cabs-in-white with subsequent painting and interior equipment.
The TMC caters for special customer requirements not covered by the standard range. The motto is very much „nothing is impossible“ - whether it be a special wheel configuration or a number of axles not offered as standard.
Europe's largest paintwork facility for truck plastic attachment parts at the plant in Steyr gives it a USP within MAN’s production network.
