An efficient driveline and efficiency-enhancing assistance systems have a positive effect on fuel consumption.
In national and international transport business, performance and efficiency are crucial for success. MAN trucks for use in long-haul transport rely on powerful yet economical engines not only ensuring more payload but also saving fuel.
The MAN TGX with D26 Euro 6 engine saves up to 8.2 % fuel – compared to the previous model. In addition to our efficient engines, also other efficiency-enhancing innovations contribute to this result.
The extended hypoid axle with a particularly long final drive ratio, which is used in long-haul transport with up to 44 tonnes gross weight, ensures a lower rated speed and thus lower fuel consumption.
