MAN Team wins with TGE 4x4 a spot on the podi-um for the 29th Aïcha des Gazelles Rally


On its very first attempt at the Rally Aicha des Gazelles duMaroc 2019, MAN Truck & Bus France qualifies in second place in the Crossover / SUV category.

  • The team of MAN Truck & Bus France was built by the company’s two colleagues Marina and Stephanie
  • The successful car was a MAN TGE with all-wheel-drive


The duo of Stephanie, the pilot, and Marina, the co-pilot, defied the very particular terrain of the Moroccan desert in a remarkable way. This performance of the team WO-MAN could not have been achieved without their MAN TGE 4x4, specially modified for the occasion, by the MAN Centre for Technical Conversions in Bourg en Bresse.

As the only utility vehicle in this competition, the MAN TGE 4x4 proved its perfect mastery of all terrains. Despite having quite a low chassis, although the vehicle was raised during preparatory work, and its length, the power (177 HP) and the agility of its engine allowed it to easily drive out of the many sand drifts which faced the 311 crew. The vital components of the vehicle having been well protected upstream, the vehicle suffered very little damage, and the WO-MAN team managed to minimize their penalty points by limiting their calls for assistance.



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.
