The new MAN Truck Generation makes its world début in the form of emergency services vehicles for fire and rescue services at the 2020 INTERSCHUTZ trade fair in June in Hanover.
Everyday Lions – this is the slogan MAN will be using when it showcases its new Truck Generation at INTERSCHUTZ, the world’s leading trade fair for fire fighting, rescue services, civil protection, safety and security from 15 - 20 June 2020 in Hanover. MAN, the brand with the lion on its crest, unveiled its new trucks in February 2020. The INTERSCHUTZ trade fair will soon provide the backdrop for the world première of emergency services vehicles on these brand new chassis.
As a full-range supplier, MAN’s vehicle portfolio covers a total permissible weight range of 3 to 41 tonnes. Fire and rescue services are particularly interested in the MAN TGL and TGM series, which cover the weight classes from 7.5 to 12 tonnes and 12 to 26 tonnes respectively. In most markets, these trucks can be converted into fire engines, rescue trucks and aerial ladders by installing superstructures on their chassis. The MAN TGS series, with its total permissible weight range starting at 18 tonnes, is the ideal choice for swap-body trucks, large fire-fighting tankers, special-purpose fire engines for industrial applications and elevating rescue platforms with a significant reach.
The MAN TGE van series with its total permissible weight range of 3 to 5.5 tonnes is perfectly suited to crew transporter, command vehicle, equipment van and ambulance and rescue vehicle applications. Having been launched onto the market in 2016, the MAN TGE van series will be making its INTERSCHUTZ début this year.
Industry-tailored chassis and fully installed emergency services vehicles from the MAN TGE, TGL and TGM series will be on show at the MAN stand in hall 27. It will also be possible to see other MAN vehicles in action at the stands of several body manufacturers.
