INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY FOCUSED ON EFFICIENCY
As one of the oldest truck manufacturers, MAN is renowned for setting the standard in new technology. Continuous innovative thinking brings the brand to the forefront of new design and development. MAN has been aggressively focused on efficiency, on environmental level, as well as lower fuel consumption and safety.
In 2010 at the Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung (IAA) in Hanover, MAN showcased the new “Truck of the future”, labeled the MAN Concept S. This radical new design not only sported a complete new aerodynamic design, but also new technology in the electrical and mechanical sectors. This was the start of a new era for the group, as they officially declared war of efficiency.
This exact “out-of-the-box” thinking is applied to the lineup of models available from MAN today. From lower CO² emissions, reduced noise levels and market-leading fuel consumption – everything is taken into consideration. With the newly launched MAN TGS EfficientLine® models, MAN now manages to bring a highly market-competitive product to an already very competitive industry. The EfficientLine range is specifically developed for ultimate fuel consumption, whilst still being environmentally friendly.
Autohaus Truck & Bus is the Namibian agent for MAN and Volkswagen trucks and buses. Autohaus is dedicated to supplying the local market with only the best vehicles, whilst focusing on highly efficient machinery. With innovative sales and marketing campaigns, Namibia has seen MAN grow constantly in numbers and became a force to be reckoned with.
In the first quarter of 2017, MAN South Africa participated in the 2017 Focus Truck Test. This independent test is done by the Focus Truck Magazine, comparing various makes and models, available on the local market. Following a return trip from Durban to Johannesburg, the MAN TGS 26.480 EfficientLine was crowned as the Heavyweight Champion. Delivering the best Payload Productivity and Lowest Fuel Consumption, the TGS proved that MAN’s hard work and development over t he past few years have paid off.
The EfficientLine not only delivers award-winning performance, but brings many other features to the trucking game. Increased diesel tank capacity, air-suspension, aluminium rims and modern Nordic Cabin insolation are only a few of the standard features that make the TGS shine in its class. The award-winning combination is furthermore backed with a hefty standard factory warranty. A full truck warranty of four years or 450,000km’s is standard, whilst the drive-line is covered for four years or 600,000km’s.
However, MAN is not just about the EfficientLine. The TGS lineup is filled with many options, ranging from on- and off-road road truck tractors, to heavy duty 6×6 and 8×8 off-road vehicles. The TGS 33.360 6×6 Off-road freight carrier is a very popular model in Namibia. Many of these vehicles can be seen in various different applications, ranging from agriculture to engineering operations and mobile drilling rigs.
Additional to this amazing range of machines, MAN also offers a variety of add-on packages to further assist the buyer. Factory Service and Full Maintenance plans are available for all models, as well as factory Buy-back and Trade-back offers. All of these are custom calculated to the buyer’s actual application and use, ensuring the client receives only the best option.
MAN is currently also the only supplier offering a hefty two-year parts warranty on all MAN Genuine Parts®, when fitted by a MAN workshop. This aggressive approach to the industry, provides the buyer with further surety and peace of mind when buying a MAN product.
