MAN Truck & Bus
Narrower, lighter more efficient: MAN designed its R6 D4276 engine specifically for harvesters. Werner Kübler, development manager at MAN Engines, explains the special features of this engine.
High speed, smooth processes, man and machine in perfect rhythm: In MAN plants around the world, the new truck now determines the processes and is assembled in five production steps.
Weather conditions affect how a vehicle can be controlled. To ensure that the new truck sits well on the road and the driver is safe and comfortable in every travel situation, the MAN test drivers made their way into the bitter cold.
From theory to practice: how does the D15 perform in daily use? MAN wanted precise information and sent two vehicles with the new engine out into distribution and construction site traffic.
It steers more than it brakes: As with tracked vehicles, the steering brake manhandles a construction truck around even the tightest turns. Yet operating this manoeuvring aid is unbelievably simple: the touch of a button is all it takes.
High tempo, smooth processes, people and machines in perfect unison: the new truck now determines the processes and is assembled in five production steps in MAN factories worldwide. What exactly does that look like? Welcome to the production line in our Munich factory.
Thousands of cubic metres of excavated material and heavy construction vehicles are transported by Konrad Götz in Seubersdorf. This requires a MAN TGX semitrailer – and a full-blooded driver, and Florian Brendel.

They appear friendly, aggressive or reliable and show character – the headlights are regarded as the eyes of a vehicle. It's not surprising that our designers give them so much attention. What was important to them when it came to the design.
Our MAN TGE is one of the most versatile transport vehicles. The van is an absolute winner for Linde Gas Therapeutics, it even secures the survival of many people in Munich.
They are clean and quiet, flexible and powerful: electric trucks could soon conquer the streets in modern cities. MAN is developing the right vehicles for this – and using practical testing to prepare for series production.
The wholesale group METRO Austria is another partner to the MAN eTruck project, testing out a TGM 26.360 E in the Vienna metropolitan area.
Since mid-September, SPAR has been testing a fully electric MAN TGM 26.360 E in daily distribution transport in the Austrian city of Graz.
