MAN Truck & Bus is celebrating its best year in over a decade, finishing the year just shy of 400 truck sales.

The all-round TGS 26.540 model in a 6x4 configuration proved to be the most popular of the MAN stable, closely followed by the TGX 540/580/640 hp range.

“With a highly-adaptable portfolio that boasts low total cost of ownership, quiet and ergonomic cabin environments, and innovative safety and efficiency features all underpinned by advanced German engineering, MAN’s superior offering is second to none,” said Sergio Carboni, national sales manager – MAN, Penske Australia.

“With almost 400 sales this year, this has been our best result since 2008, and the success of both MAN’s on-highway and AWD 4x4, 6x6, and 8x8 portfolios demonstrates its dominance in the most arduous of environments and applications.

“Our customers understand that by partnering with us, they are not only acquiring a high-quality MAN asset, they are also fully supported by our extensive dealer network.”

With the new MAN truck generation (TG) expected to arrive in Australia within months, closing out the current era on a sales high is a fitting end.

“Our success in 2021 lays a great foundation for 2022 when we will bring MAN’s brand new and award-winning TG platform to our local customers,” he said.

“Delivering optimised uptime, an excellent driver fit, and great efficiency and economy all backed by an expansive support network, the new trucks will bring a fresh energy to our market.”
