The TGX EfficientLine from MAN doesn’t just save money, it helps save the environment, too. Because its equipment package is designed for maximum efficiency. Aluminum wheel rims, compressed air tank and fuel tank all reduce its weight. Which means up to half a ton of increased loading capacity. Plus, an aero package as standard reduces drag and the perfectly balanced 12-speed gearbox markedly reduces consumption. That’s how it saves 18,000 liters of diesel in four years over a distance of 150,000 kilometers in 12 months. See where else MAN technology can boost efficiency and cut costs at www.man-kann.eu.
To keep the economy running smoothly, every sort of freight needs to be transported – millions of tons every day. From raw materials to finished products. A large part of this transport takes place by road – and the volume of transport will grow significantly in the coming years. In view of expensive fuel and toll costs, as well as the increasingly strict environmental requirements, companies face a challenge of containing transport costs while working to improve the environment.
MAN TGX EfficientLine trucks are an outstanding example of how MAN is already meeting these challenges of our ever-more complex economic system. MAN engineers have worked rigorously on many areas, systems and details to achieve one major goal: to save as much fuel as possible.
18,000 liters less diesel, €20,000 less costs
Thanks to advanced technology, sophisticated design and superior innovation, the MAN TGX EfficientLine saves up to 3 liters per 100 kilometers compared to a standard tractor-trailer unit. That, in itself, is a lot. Over the course of a year, it’s considerable. Over a distance of 150,000 kilometers in 12 months and a working life of 4 years, each MAN in this range uses up to 18,000 liters less diesel. And in doing so, saves costs in the five-figure range: with an average price of €1.11 (excluding tax) for a liter of diesel fuel in Europe, up to €20,000 less flow into the tank. Enough to please every number cruncher in the company.
Less consumption is better for the environment
The environment is benefiting too. Because the lower diesel consumption cuts down up to 47,000 kilograms of CO2 over four years, which would otherwise have burdened the air. And where less diesel is burnt, less particulate is produced. The MAN TGX EfficientLine doesn’t just impress on the road, but in terms of ecobalance too.
Great success is down to honing the details
If you want to make something good even better, you need an eye for detail – without losing sight of the whole picture. To this end, the MAN TGX EfficientLine’s fuel economy is based on a wide range of individual measures that work together in the interest of greater efficiency. Together, they add up to a considerable improvement in the performance record. That’s true for the reduced drag and rolling resistance as well as the MAN TipMatic® gearbox and 85 km/h speed limiter. With MAN, safety, environmental awareness and cost reduction fit together perfectly. Because these measures also increase efficiency and bring a faster return on investment.
Learn how to drive sparingly
To ensure that all the technical refinement is used to its full advantage, MAN pays attention, not just to the technology, but the most important factor of all: the driver. In the form of a detailed vehicle orientation, every driver can be familiarized with all the options of the new vehicle as part of a comprehensive practical and theoretical training package. The interaction between technology, driving style and consumption are made clear, which yields many surprising insights that can be used in daily operation.
This all demonstrates how MAN engineers make good ideas better. Plus, it shows how, with an eye on environmental savings, MAN innovation improves safety, provides economic benefits and offers solutions for the overall economic challenges.
