Aims of the funding programme: Sustainably increasing safety in road freight transport with heavy commercial vehicles and improving environmental compatibility thanks to lower emissions and reduced material consumption.

The German government will support you with up to 80% of the eligible investment. MAN provides numerous approaches for you to make optimum use of this subsidy for your fleet.

Up to which amount is funding possible?

There is no restriction on the amount of the measure to be funded.

Please note: Vehicles with a gross train weight of 7.49 tonnes are not eligible for funding!
