MAN expands CNG range

MAN expands CNG range

MAN said it is expanding its range of CNG vehicles, adding trucks with CNG drives to its range of natural gas city buses in 2016.


At the IAA 2014, MAN is giving a preview of the CNG technology in trucks with a TGM distributor chassis. The 18-tonner is driven by a six-cylinder CNG engine with 280 hp from 6.9 l displacement and is equipped with a 12-speed MAN TipMatic gearbox. The Euro 6 turbo engine has a maximum torque of 1150 Nm and thus provides the same tractive force as a diesel engine of this performance class.

The tank at the IAA exhibit holds 140 kg of natural gas, which is stored in eight compact aluminium tanks with carbon coating. Steel tanks able to hold up to 140 kg natural gas are also available. This tank capacity allows 18-tonners to cover some 400 km in distributor urban transport and around 700 km on secondary roads.
