MAN Global

Great efficiency and economy

Exceptional economy and efficiency on long-haul routes

At a glance

  • Reduced fuel consumption

    Economical engines, improved aerodynamics and many other efficiency-enhancing innovations effect fuel savings of up to 6 % .
  • Economical thanks to MAN EfficientCruise with PredictiveDrive
    The GPS-supported cruise control analyses the route and automatically calculates the most efficient driving style and speed.
  • Customised driver support
    Perform provides specific vehicle data which can then be used to optimise operational performance, for example by using it as a basis for our MAN Connected CoDriver training.

A full load of savings

The aim of our engines for the MAN TGX is clear: more power, less consumption.

If you want to stay ahead, you need a reliable drive system. No distance is too far for MAN to take care of this. In the MAN TGX, powerful and efficient D15, D26 and D38 engines offer greater payload while saving fuel. The semi-automatic MAN TipMatic 12 gearbox  – with less unladen weight – as well as dynamic torque adjustment and speed reduction with MAN EfficientRoll ensure even more economical driving. This reduces fuel consumption in long-haul transport with very low average speed decline. Along with other efficiency-enhancing innovations, the MAN TGX allows for further fuel savings of up to 6 % .

Further, stronger, more efficient.

The motto of the MAN D26 is: “There’s still room for more”. It offers up to an additional 10 HP and a higher torque of +50 Nm – to drive your company forward.

Lighter, smarter, more efficient.

If less is more, we simply shift down a gear. For example, with our MAN TipMatic 12 gearshift system . This semi-automatic gearbox has twelve forward and two reverse gears and offers significant added value compared to equivalent gearboxes with more gears.

MAN D15 engine

Low weight for maximum payload and a simplified SCR exhaust gas aftertreatment system.

MAN D26 engine

Outstanding payload ratio and optimised thermal management with improved common rail injection system.

MAN D38 engine

Powerful traction and optimised running characteristics at low fuel consumption.


Drive axle with efficiency-optimised transmission.

The low-friction oil supports low-friction processes.

The 5W-20 low-friction engine oil effects reduced wear and even fuel savings.

Improved aerodynamics

In terms of aerodynamics, the MAN TGX is truly a breath of fresh air: Air resistance and consumption levels are noticeably reduced, especially in long-haul transport, and the design not only reduces fuel consumption but also general contamination of the vehicle.

Flexible plastic parts such as the aerodynamically optimised A-pillar trim and door gap closures ensure more favourable airflow around the vehicle and suppress the build-up of turbulence. The optional spoiler-like and reversible extensions on the sideflaps and roof spoiler reduce the clearance between the cab and the trailer for even more effective aerodynamics, even in crosswinds. In conjunction with MAN OptiView, these measures reduce fuel consumption by up to 1.1%.

MAN has done it. Consumption is always our main selling point. MAN occupies a leading position in this area.
