MAN Christmas trucks on tour
This year will again see two MAN TGX trucks, specially decorated for Christmas, bringing a sparkle to eyes - not only of the children - at Children's Villages and kindergartens all round Germany, from the first Sunday in Advent to Christmas Eve.
The 16-metre semitrailers with their festive illumination will be touring the entire country, from Berlin, Leipzig, Dresden, Zwickau, Plauen, Grünberg, Coburg, Salzgitter, Augsburg and Munich to Regensburg. The two Christmas trucks will be visiting SOS Children's Villages and kindergartens, taking with them truck models made of chocolate and truck-shaped cookie cutters as small gifts for the children. The trucks will also be visiting the MAN plants, branches and service partners, as well as some Christmas markets.
Trainees from MAN Nutzfahrzeuge AG in Munich have transformed the two metallic red 540-hp semitrailers into real Christmas trucks: 200-metre long chains of lights, able to withstand weather and washing, have been mounted on each of the tractors and their trailers, which have been fittingly decorated for winter. The trainees framed the radiator grilles with hundreds and hundreds of LEDs.
