Great Britain: The MAN TGE has been crowned 2021 Best Large Van at the Parkers Awards

  • Parkers' experts test according to strict criteria
  • MAN TGE takes the lead for the second time in a row
  • “MAN is unique in this sector for offering truck levels of aftersales care and assistance,” says Keith Adams, editor of Parkers.co.uk

The TGE van from MAN Truck & Bus was honored in Great Britain at the end of October with the "Best Large Van 2021" award by the experts of the website Parkers.co.uk. The Parkers Awards evaluate vans according to customer-relevant criteria such as near-use driving cycles, economic efficiency and ease of use, reflecting the views of British van buyers.

Keith Adams, editor of Parkers.co.uk said: “Now a two-times winner of the Parkers Best Large Van award, the MAN TGE sets impressively high standards yet to be reached by its rivals. MAN is unique in this sector for offering truck levels of aftersales care and assistance. The TGE is brilliant to use – it’s good to drive for such a large vehicle, offers great real-world efficiency and has impressive load volumes, with a cab environment that’s second-to-none.”

Each of the shortlisted models were tested independently and rigorously by Parkers expert reviewers, analysing cost-per-month, value, quality, overall excellence and fitness for purpose. The MAN TGE beat off stiff competition from other van manufacturers.

Daniel Holbein, Head of MAN Truck & Bus Van products in the UK, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to receive both this Award and the recognition from Parkers, now for the second year running. We are also thrilled that our Customer First service promise has clearly caught Parkers’ eye, this underpins our commitment to our customers ensuring we keep their vehicles on the road and earning at all times.”



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.
