New MAN TG truck range to set standards for usability and connectivity


Model cycles in the truck business are different from the ones in the car industry, a completely new truck generation is developed only every 15 to 20 years. Recent new launches have came from Scania and Iveco with MAN due next to introduce the latest versions of its TGX & TGS heavy-duty ranges. “At the beginning of 2020, we will roll out our new truck generation,” announced Joachim Drees, MAN CEO and member of the TRATON Executive Board.

It will replace the current and enormously successful Truck Generation product line that has been sold over millions of times in countless variants since its arrival in 2000. MAN’s new flagship (seen by Fleet Transport) is designed to set standards in terms of user-friendliness as well as connectivity – not only today’s requirements for digitalization, automation, and drive systems concepts, but also tomorrows, according to Mr. Drees, speaking at the TRATON Group’s Innovation Days in Södertälje, Sweden.

“This new truck generation has been developed based on concrete requirements of our customers in order to make their work and the work of the drivers easier, more efficient, and more comfortable. It is not just a new truck but rather an integrated transport solution. The vehicle will impress both transport companies and the drivers,” he emphasized.
