MAN Trucks has recently crossed an important milestone in its India journey over 25,000 vehicles sold in India as well as in export markets. The new CLA range was unveiled at the BAUMA CONEXPO INDIA in December 2016. The market introduction of the new range also coincides with the BSIV emission norms that came into effect on April 1. The series includes tippers, rigids and tractors, besides special application trucks that address diverse customer requirements. These are designed to operate in tough operating conditions with high performance and efficiency levels.

Joerg Mommertz, Chairman and Managing Director, MAN Trucks India said, “At MAN, it is our endeavour to provide best-in-class solutions for the transport and infrastructure sectors. We have always listened to our customers to understand their changing requirements. The new CLA EVO range is a good example of our ability to develop solutions in India, for India. MAN trucks are seen as a reference for strong performance over long duty cycles. Going forward, we will work towards bringing newer solutions to raise the bar for our customers.” “With the implementation of GST, demand for haulage trucks is expected to rise. The MAN long haul trucks can operate up to 20 hours duty cycles, which will benefit operators in terms of faster turnaround. The engines have been been enhanced to deliver more power, while being fuel efficient. Besides the product range, we are also expanding our after sales service network in order to cater to requirements across all key routes and locations,” Mommertz added.

  1. On a bit harsher note, “MAN finally LIMPED to 25k”…
    Having quality products, MAN hasn’t been able to penetrate the Indian market unlike its German counterpart. One of main reason for its slow progress is the lack of customer touch points. MAN is doing good in Boom pumps, transit mixer (powered by truck, no slave engine required) and moderately in Tippers. It is the segment with max TIV, ie haulage trucks where it is losing out big time. Can it turn around in BS4 era?
