SUPPORTING THE CRITICAL FRONTLINE ROLE OUR CUSTOMERS PLAY

We are all well aware of the new challenges that coronavirus has created not just in the UK but on a global scale.

Every single sector is feeling the ever-changing strain – with many working around the clock to keep critical supply chains open ­– like our customers and colleagues working in transport and logistics.

At MAN Truck & Bus UK, we’re working alongside you to ensure that the companies who rely on our trucks, vans and coaches to transport essential goods, services and workers are able to operate as normally as possible.

In some situations this means unavoidable face-to-face contact, in these instances we are making sure this is done safely and to all Government guidelines in terms of social distancing, ensuring the use of protective equipment and a comprehensive approach to equipment sterilisation. All staff in our 68 service centres are doing a fantastic job of conforming to these high standards. We have also made sure that we have an increased stock of spare parts available and our Mobile24 vehicle recovery service is still ready to support any operator on the road.

In the coming weeks and months, we’ll keep you updated regularly on our social media channels to let you know the measures we are taking, as well as advice on how you can stay operational and, most importantly, stay safe.

To all of our customers, our staff who are working on the front lines, to our employees keeping MAN operational from home, I want to offer my personal thanks for your dedication and commitment in the face of this unprecedented crisis. You have all shown that as long as you keep your operations running – we’ll be a partner you can rely on to get the job done.

DO8 ENGINE UPDATE

The MAN TGL and TGM impress by offering enhanced power alongside greater efficiency thanks to our innovative D08 generation engines, the new intelligent MAN TipMatic® gearbox functions and a weight-optimised front axle.

In the future they will also be even more comfortable and fuel efficient on the road thanks to the optimised driveline. An additional plus: The new generation engines can also be fuelled with environmentally-friendly biodiesel – the environment will thank you with improved CO2 figures on your balance sheet.

Achieve more with less: the new generation of MAN D08 engines offer even greater performance and reliability on the roads, despite using up to 5% less fuel

Our secret: reducing down to the essentials. Thanks to much simpler exhaust-gas cleaning and cooling systems, the engine is lighter, less complex and more efficient.

Even lighter for greater payloads: the innovative engine and exhaust-gas cleaning concepts not only ensures optimal power delivery but also means you benefit from an improved payload balance thanks to the low engine weight. And of course, a lighter engine also reduces your fuel consumption considerably, saving you money and protecting the environment.
