MAN wishing "Merry Christmas" with the Christmas truck
The MAN road train, lavishly decorated in keeping with the season, will be touring southern Germany from the beginning of December until Christmas. The Christmas truck will be visiting kindergartens, children's hospitals, SOS Children's Villages and other social institutions and will also be stopping at some Christmas markets. Santa Claus will have chocolate in the shape of trucks and cuddly toys as small gifts for the children.
Wishes from MAN for a merry Christmas will be emblazoned in various different languages on the semitrailer, which will show MAN's newly designed trademark lion guarding a winter landscape illuminated by the Northern Lights. The tractor is a Nightfire Red Metallic MAN TGX 18.540 4x4H with HydroDrive® and XXL cab. Trainees from the MAN Truck & Bus plant in Munich have mounted long chains of lights of around 200 metres in length on the vehicle and framed the radiator grille with a wreath consisting of several hundred LEDs. With 540 hp and equipped with MAN HydroDrive®, the innovative engageable hydrostatic front-axle drive, the Christmas truck will reach its destinations safely and punctually, bringing pleasure to the children during Advent no matter how bad the weather and road conditions.
