20,000th MAN TGE rolls off the production line


At the end of May, the 20,000th MAN TGE was produced in Września, Poland. The van with the striking lion badge on the dark radiator grille is therefore a true success story for MAN Truck & Bus. The 20,000th TGE was an eTGE with 100% battery-powered drive.

  • “TGE and MAN's service portfolio are going down well in the market”
  • MAN Truck & Bus will increase the van sales team in Europe by 100 salespersons before the end of the year

A brief look back: the MAN TGE celebrated its launch at the IAA Commercial Vehicles in 2016. It marked MAN's entry into the van segment and made MAN Truck & Bus a full-range supplier of commercial vehicles from 3 to 44 tonnes. TGE production was started in a state-of-the-art van plant in Września near Poznań, Poland in April 2017. The vehicle was launched onto the market in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the Netherlands two months later. Now, just two years later, the MAN TGE is available in over 30 countries and 20,000 vehicles have been produced. A remarkable achievement for all involved.

Martin Imhoff, head of van product marketing at MAN Truck & Bus, had this to say about the production milestone: “For the team at MAN and in production in Września, this is a great delight and a huge success. We reached this production milestone considerably earlier than even we expected. This shows, on the one hand, just how well the TGE and MAN's service portfolio have been received in the market and, on the other hand, how highly motivated our specialist, highly trained van salespersons are when they advise our customers.” In addition, Imhoff pointed out the fact that the TGE sales team in Europe will be expanded by around 100 salespersons by the end of the year – up to over 600. Further milestones appear promising in the near future.

The milestone van, which came off the production line in Września, is an electric van in cherry red with a normal wheelbase and a high roof. The MAN eTGE is driven by an electric motor which can deliver 100 kW/136 hp; this power is transferred by a single-speed gearbox.


The vehicles and products displayed on this website may differ in terms of shape, design, colour and scope of supply. Some of the images may include special equipment, accessories and decorative elements which are subject to an additional charge. The technical features and equipment of the vehicles described are merely examples and may differ, in particular on a country-specific basis. We reserve the right to make changes at any time.

Our vehicles are equipped with summer tyres as standard. Please check possible national regulations about whether winter tyres are required. Your MAN partner will be happy to advise you.

The specified fuel consumption and emission data has been determined according to the measurement procedures prescribed by law. Since 1st September 2017, certain new vehicles are already being type-approved according to the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure for measuring fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. It is currently still required by law to state the NEDC figures for vehicles for passenger transport with registration class M1. In the case of new vehicles which have been type-approved according to the WLTP, the NEDC figures are derived from the WLTP data. In cases where the NEDC figures are specified as value ranges, these do not refer to a particular individual vehicle and do not constitute part of the sales offering.

Additional equipment and accessories (e.g. add-on parts, different tyre formats, etc.) may change the relevant vehicle parameters, such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics, and, in conjunction with weather and traffic conditions and individual driving style, may affect fuel consumption, electrical power consumption, CO2 emissions and the performance figures for the vehicle.

Efficiency classes rate vehicles for passenger transport with an M1 passenger vehicle registration, according to the CO2 emissions under consideration of the empty vehicle weight. Vehicles which conform to the average are classified as D. Vehicles which are above the current average are classified as A+, A, B or C. Vehicles which are below average are classified as E, F or G.

Additional information regarding the official fuel consumption, and the official specific CO2 emissions of new vehicles for passenger transport, with an M1 passenger vehicle registration, can be found in the “Guide on the fuel economy, CO2-Emissions, and power consumptions of all New Passenger Car Models”. This guideline is available free of charge at all sales points and from the DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen, Germany.

In vehicle classes N1, N2 and M2, coolant of the type R134a is used. MAN TGEs of vehicle class M1 require coolant of the type R1234yf. The GWP value of the coolant used is 1.430 (coolant type R134a) and 4 (coolant type R1234yf). The fill levels depend on the coolant compressor and varies between 560 - 590 grams.
