MAN to unveil efficiency technologies at IAA 2014
MAN Truck and Bus will reveal latest engine tech at Hanover trade show
MAN Truck and Bus has revealed that it will showcase its latest efficiency technologies at IAA Commercial Vehicles 2014.
The German vehicle manufacturer will use the Hanover event as a platform to unveil its latest engines, with the top-of-the-range 640 hp TGX D38 truck as its centrepiece.
With 19 trucks on its stand and on display, MAN will be the second-largest exhibitor at this year’s show.
“[Consumption efficiency] goes hand in hand with our goal of reducing CO2 emissions,” commented MAN in a press release detailing its plans.
“The new TGX EfficientLine has all of the efficiency technologies on board, most notably the EfficientCruise GPS Tempomat and the TopTorque torque enhancer for fuel economy. In the TGX EfficientLine, designed with consistent fuel economy in mind, MAN has the most successful model on the market. Since its market launch in 2010, more than 27,000 customers have chosen the EfficientLine models and packages,” added the manufacturer.
The 15.2-litre, six-cylinder TGX D38 engine, which is to be unveiled for the first time at IAA 2014, will be available in 520 hp, 560 hp, or 640 hp variants.
MAN has also reworked its D26 engine portfolio for trucks of 400 hp to 480 hp, and now provides the TopTorque function throughout the range to deliver an additional 200Nm of torque in the two highest gears.
The manufacturer will integrate the EfficientCruise GPS Tempomat into its TGX, TGS, and bus series, in a bid to further reduce CO2 emissions across its range of commercial vehicles.
IAA Commercial Vehicles 2014 will take place in Hanover, Germany, from 25 September to 2 October 2014.
