MAN trucks score points in the highly competitive logistics business in terms of payload and transport efficiency.
We consistently implement lightweight design and weight-reduced vehicle components, allowing you to load more and get the most out of every tour. The lowest possible unladen weight of the trucks leads to increased payload, resulting in additional profit for your transport business.
The driveline contributes to a higher payload and maximum transport efficiency as well: The compact, yet powerful engines are significantly lighter than their predecessors.
Heavy inner-city traffic, narrow access roads and lots of different road users – every delivery driver knows the distribution transport challenges. The practical features of our trucks facilitate your work.
Manoeuvring from delivery to delivery through city traffic and heading for the loading point within a few centimetres: the best possible overview is the most important factor in every driving situation. Our digital mirror replacement system favours an ideal overview of the vehicle’s surroundings. The exterior cameras capture the vehicle’s surroundings, thus reducing the blind spot on the driver’s and the co-driver’s side. Even when carrying out more demanding manoeuvres such as shunting and turning, the extended display views allow for the driver to receive an immediate and comprehensive overview of the traffic situation and obstacles.
The digital exterior mirrors even have another benefit: Due to the mirror arms being dispensed with, the direct field of view also increases.
Since the mirror arms are now positioned in the area around the A-pillar, the mirrors of our MAN distribution trucks are located further to the rear. This positioning not only improves aerodynamics, but also enhances the direct field of vision to the front and to the sides. In addition, the field of vision is expanded by the lowered instrument panel in the cockpit. Hence you can keep an eye on what is happening in front and on the left and right sides of your vehicle.
During some turns, pedestrians, cyclists and other road users are difficult to see, even if great attention is paid. The MAN turn assist* uses radar sensors to monitor the area to the right of the vehicle at speeds of up to 30 km/h (19 mph). If the sensors detect a road user, the driver is warned via an optical signal on the A-pillar in the cab. In the event of an impending collision, an additional warning tone sounds.
*Available for the MAN TGX, MAN TGS and MAN TGM models.
Important vehicle functions can be operated via the MAN EasyControl panel on the inside of the driver’s door. For example, you can switch the loading area lighting on and off or release the liftgate control even after getting off the vehicle. Up to four keys can be either pre-configured ex works or they can be assigned to suit your individual needs.
Anyone frequently getting on and off a delivery vehicle appreciates a safe and comfortable access.
A door opening angle of 90° and stair-like wide steps ensure easy access. The individual steps are equipped with non-slip grating. Additional safety is provided by the optional entry lighting, providing perfect illumination for the steps even in darkness.
Thanks to the considerable adjustment range of the steering wheel, the driver’s seat in the cab is easily accessible: In park position, the steering wheel can be pushed forward into a horizontal position, which significantly increases the space between the seat edge and the steering wheel. Due to its seat contour, which was developed in extensive driver tests, the premium seat offers a perfect and comfortable seating position.
Thanks to a sophisticated storage concept, driver and co-driver have practical storage space at their disposal. Hand scanners and documents are quickly at hand when getting off the car, and everything is safely stowed away during the journey.
