Largest order in the history of MAN TGE
International ambulance company Falck Danmark A/S has signed a master agreement with MAN Truck & Bus. This framework agreement covers running replacement of Falck´s van-based functional vehicles in five European countries throughout a six year period. This can sum up to a delivery of approximately 2,500 MAN TGE vans, making MAN preferred van partner for Falck.
- Vehicles for ambulance and patient-transport applications
- Master agreement MAN TGE base vehicles by the end of 2026
The Falck Group based in the Danish capital Copenhagen is an international provider of rescue services that employees a workforce of over 30,000 in 35 countries. Falck’s portfolio includes emergency rescue, firefighting, patient and intensive-care transport services, ambulance operations, and mobility services. Falck has signed a comprehensive master agreement with MAN Truck & Bus that covers its ambulance and patient-transport applications.
The vehicles called up under the framework agreement may total around 2,500 MAN TGE by 2026. The modern, reliable vans can be ordered by five of Falck’s national organisations in Denmark, Germany, Sweden, Spain, and the United Kingdom. MAN will supply the base vehicles, while the equipment and body of each one will be built and fitted by renowned body manufacturers to Falck’s specifications. The first van orders from the master agreement have already been placed.
Thomas Herzog, Head of International Key Account Van at MAN Truck & Bus, had the following to say when asked about the reasons for this success: “Thanks to our high body-integration competence, which MAN has incidentally been putting to good use in the truck business for decades, we can guarantee seamless processing and the highest possible quality for the complete vehicle. Only by cooperating with body manufacturers can we safeguard our customers’ success and simplify their day-to-day operations. That is our primary objective here at MAN.”
For long-standing, Munich-based commercial vehicle manufacturer MAN Truck & Bus, this is the largest single order in the history of its van segment. Falck and MAN are already well acquainted. With the TGE, MAN has had a van in the segment between 3.0 and 5.5 t zGM in its range since 2016.
Back in 2019, Falck’s Danish arm ordered 132 MAN TGL light trucks from MAN Lastbiler Danmark, MAN’s national organisation for that country. 19 TGE vans were also among the units ordered then. In the United Kingdom, too, Falck Ambulance UK puts its faith in the MAN TGE for patient-transport services. A total of 92 TGE vans were delivered there in the past two years.

Some of the images may include special equipment, accessories and decorative elements which are subject to an additional charge.

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.
