MAN to show major truck performance updates at IAA
MAN Truck & Bus to debut its next generation of transmission and GPS-linked cruise control
MAN will be presenting a portfolio of 'future-proof' trucks at the IAA Commercial Vehicles fair in Hanover in late September in terms of engine and performance optimisation and driving dynamics.
MAN will unveil its new generation TipMatic transmission, designed to reduce fuel consumption and increase driving comfort, including improvements to the speed and efficiency of its gear changes.
The new SmartShifting function implements a rapid switching process suitable across all gears and driving application that calculates accelerator pedal position, vehicle mass and driving resistance to determine the optimum switching speed for every situation.
A new version of the GPS-supported, topography-analysing MAN EfficientCruise anticipatory cruise control is also now available, along with the EfficientRoll gearbox function that switches the gearbox into neutral on gentle downward gradients to capitalise on the forward momentum of the vehicle.
“The IAA 2016 trade fair is a significant platform for MAN to showcase our cutting edge technologies across our truck range," explained Franz von Redwitz, MD for MAN Truck & Bus Middle East.
“This year, we will showcase our design innovations and fuel efficiency features, and to engaging with our customers from the Middle East at IAA and giving them a glimpse of our future vision.”
