In October last year, MAN Truck & Bus began a 9 800km odyssey across Europe to showcase its latest TG model range, which had been launched that month at the IAA in Hanover, Germany.

Since then, thousands of potential customers in nine countries across Europe were given an opportunity to explore the TG, with more than 4 600 of them experiencing the vehicle in action.

According to a statement released by the company, the option of taking the new trucks on test drives proved particularly popular. By the end of the tour, the trucks had clocked up 3 300 test sessions and had covered a total distance of 170 000km – more than four times the circumference of the earth.

“The test drives carried out by MAN ProfiDrive particularly demonstrated the performance and efficiency of the new drive train generation in the TG model ranges,” says the statement. “Positive feedback was received.”
