Our products for a sustainable future


It is our aim to develop products which are both energy-efficient and safe. To this end, we focus particularly on the use phase, where most CO₂ emissions are generated. In product development we work to continuously reduce fuel consumption and make greater use of alternative drive technologies.

Using front-mounted radar and camera technology, this truck safety system spots hazards faster and initiates emergency braking earlier if necessary. The technology already meets the stricter EU performance requirements for emergency braking systems that will become mandatory for all newly registered vehicles in November 2018.

The used MAN Genuine Parts are fully reconditioned, with all wearing parts remanufactured or replaced. Reuse of existing parts conserves resources and saves energy.

These remanufactured parts are produced to strict quality standards. This means they come with the same warranty as a new part, but with an almost 40% lower price tag.

The process of preparation

  • aufbereitung_1.jpg

    New lease of life for used engines
    After pre-used MAN engines arrive at the Nuremberg Engine Competence Center, their components are restored to tip-top condition and then reinstalled in an MAN remanufactured engine.

  • aufbereitung_2.jpg

    The reconditioning expert
    Georg Kugler heads up the Thermal Testing and Exchange Units department at MAN in Nuremberg.

  • aufbereitung_3.jpg

    Engine dismantling
    The first step in the remanufacturing process is to dismantle the engine. Reusable parts are set aside for cleaning.

  • aufbereitung_4.jpg

    Sorting the sheep from the goats ...
    On some parts, the wear and tear is visible even before cleaning. Parts which even at first glance show too many signs of fatigue do not enter the remanufacturing process.

  • aufbereitung_5.jpg

    Rooting out the rust
    After cleaning, an MAN employee uses a sandblaster to remove the last traces of rust. Then the parts, now shining like new, are ready for coating.

  • aufbereitung_6.jpg

    On the examination table
    An MAN employee uses a probe to examine all parts of a used engine. Here, parts that are difficult to access and the larger components can be carefully checked for wear and material fatigue.

  • aufbereitung_7.jpg

    Measuring up
    On the test stand, an MAN employee checks the exact dimensions of selected used parts. All reconditioned parts needed for engine remanufacturing remain at the Nuremberg plant, moving straight on to the final assembly line.

  • aufbereitung_8.jpg

    Thorough testing
    MAN’s quality guidelines for the final assembly process are particularly strict. The preceding reconditioning process is so thorough that all the remanufactured parts used in final assembly offer equivalent quality to a new part.

  • aufbereitung_9.jpg

    Ready for shipment
    Remanufactured engines at the Nuremberg plant. All the old parts are remanufactured there. After this rejuvenating process, the parts work like new ones and are assembled to the exchange engines.

In 2015, MAN Genuine Parts ecoline was recognized with the European Transport Prize for Sustainability.

MAN defines platooning as a vehicle-based system, in which two or more truck-trailer combinations follow each other in close proximity with the aid of driver assistance systems, controller technology, and vehicle-to-vehicle communication. The following vehicles in the “platoon” are controlled by the lead vehicle. The distance between each combination is half a second of driving time. The resulting “slipstreaming effect” achieves an overall fuel saving for the platoon as a whole of up to 10%, while also reducing CO₂ emissions and improving traffic flows on the highway.

Drawing on its technology and know-how in this field, MAN is partnering in the platooning project organized by the Dutch EU Council Presidency. As part of the “European Truck Platooning Challenge 2016,” an MAN platoon performed a test run from Munich to Rotterdam.

This means we are the truck manufacturer with the highest share of vehicles to pass the main TÜV inspections free of faults. The outstanding reliability of MAN trucks lets our customers enjoy a much lower risk of unscheduled downtimes, while at the same time minimizing associated costs such as repairs and replacement vehicles.

For the past two years, inclusion has been an integral part of the vocational training program in Salzgitter. As part of “Changing Sides,” a joint project with the local disability support group Lebenshilfe Braunschweig, vocational trainees with physical or intellectual disabilities spend four weeks at the MAN Academy working under the same conditions as their classmates from MAN. In return, four vocational trainees from MAN spend two weeks at the Lebenshilfe workshop. The exchange project is a chance for MAN employees to gain a fresh perspective on disability, helping to reduce prejudice toward people who are sometimes seen as less productive, and to promote tolerance.

The project was awarded the Braunschweig Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s Social Transfer Prize in 2015.

The Pinetown plant in South Africa basks in more than 300 days of sunshine a year. Since 2015 it has been MAN Truck & Bus’s first ever carbon-neutral production site, following the installation of a large photovoltaic system on a 6,300 square meter production hall roof. Since it came on stream in late 2014, this system has made the plant fully self-sufficient in renewable energy. Any power left over is fed into the local electricity grid. This project is unique in the whole of Africa.

In November 2015, the Resende plant in Brazil celebrated a new safety record of two million working hours without lost-time accidents.

This impressive milestone was achieved thanks to the efforts of our employees, who have consistently shown a strong commitment to safety. During an accident prevention week, for instance, 600 employees at the plant took part in training courses on topics such as ergonomics and accident prevention.
