MCVE 2022: All-new MAN TGX flagship model makes Malaysian debut

KUALA LUMPUR: MAN Truck & Bus (M) Sdn Bhd (MAN Malaysia) is confident of a significant market demand for the flagship model of its recently launched Euro V emission-compliant New MAN Truck Generation line-up.

The all-new MAN TGX was officially unveiled by Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Henry Sum Agong at the Malaysia Commercial Vehicle Expo (MCVE) 2022 that is ongoing till March 12.

Following its Malaysian debut, the all-new MAN TGX with a high roof and the largest cab among all the New MAN Truck Generation models, will be offered alongside its more familiar stablemate, the flexible and versatile MAN TGS that is typically the model of choice in this market.

With an exterior width of 2,440mm, length of 2,280mm and height of 2,150mm, the MAN TGX is designed for long-haul and cross-border trips that typically last a few days.

The spacious cabin offers more than 520 litres of combined storage space while the standing height of 2,100mm allows easy movement for the driver and co-driver.

The MAN TGX is powered by the proven MAN D2676 LF08 Euro V diesel engine with a maximum power output of 540hp, maximum torque of 2,500Nm and much lower carbon emissions to comply with stricter Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) standards that are the norm in today’s business environment.

The 12-speed MAN TipMatic gearbox promises excellent moving-off and gearshift strategy to reduce fuel consumption and high levels of driving and operating comfort.

In November 2021, MAN became the first truck manufacturer in Malaysia to offer Euro V engines as standard across its entire product portfolio.

MAN Malaysia managing director Andrew O’Brooks said that the move demonstrated the company’s desire to stand-up and be counted in Malaysia’s journey towards carbon neutral status by 2050.

“We are effectively challenging the Malaysian transporters to join the journey and take the lead in reducing carbon emissions.

“In Europe, long distance transport vehicles produce as much as 27% of CO2 gases. Malaysia must look and act now to reduce its carbon footprint, the commercial vehicle industry as well as public service vehicles can do their part in this environmental challenge.

O'Brooks said the new MAN Truck Generation featuring Euro V engines as standard is an all-new product range that leads the way in driver orientation, fuel efficiency, assistance systems, digital networking and above all, sustainability.

“The industry certainly needs to reinvest in new, future-proof trucks that meet these criteria especially in the current business environment that demands strict environmental, social and governance (ESG) compliance,” he said.

At MCVE 2022, MAN Malaysia officially signed sale and purchase agreements with Sea Hawk Global Lines Sdn Bhd, Biforst Logistics Sdn Bhd and Azmi Gas Sdn Bhd.

The MAN TGX is available at the MAN Malaysia Pavilion @ Booth No M16.
