MAN reveals revamped distribution trucks


MAN has unveiled new versions of its TGL and TGM lightweight and medium weight trucks at the 62nd International Automobile Show (IAA) 2008 in Hanover.

The vehicles have been revamped, both inside and out, with improved aerodynamics and in-cab comfort, as well as featuring the company’s new Euro 5 and EEV compliant engines.

The D08 engine with exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), also being revealed for the first time at IAA 2008, is designed to lower emissions without the need for additives such as AdBlue, offering payload and handling benefits.

Inside the cab there is now more stowage facilities, as well as new fabrics and trims, the option of temperature controlled seating with tempered airflow, air-conditioning with automatic temperature control and multifunction steering wheel.

Safety options have also been updated. MAN now offers an electronic braking system, which is says is a first for vehicles of this category, which can incorporate the ESP anti-skid and tilt protection system for solo vehicles.

The TGL and TGM series were first launched three years ago and have been updated to match the look of the recently introduced heavyweight Trucknology series TGX and TGS.
