BEIJING – MAN Truck & Bus Company launched its EfficientLine high performing trailer tractor to the Chinese market here on August 30.
The tractor is equipped with MAN D20 or D26 engines. Peak power for the D20 and D26 engine versions are 324 kW (440 hp) and 397 kW (540 hp) respectively.
The unique Air Pressure Management (APM) from MAN automatically cuts out the compressor when it is not in use and thus save gasoline consumption by 0.5L over 100 km.
The tractor can be operated fully automatically or manually through MAN TipMatic and the 12-gear system has the optimum shifting strategy to drastically cut diesel consumption.
Compressed-air tank, fuel tank and wheel rims of aluminium plus dispensing with sun visor and sparewheel all reduce vehicle weight substantially and raise payload by as much as 500 kg.
As one of the leading international suppliers of commercial vehicles and transport solutions in Europe, MAN focuses itself on providing quality products and customer-oriented business solutions. MAN hopes the introduction of EfficientLine high performing trailer tractor would bring surprise to clients, according to Thilo Halter, president of MAN Truck & Bus China.
