MAN EX­PANDS TO WINDY CITY

The Witness - Wheels - - TRANSPORT -

MAN has moved its Pine­town re­tail oper­a­tion to Port El­iz­a­beth.

MAN said in a state­ment the brand has seen sig­nif­i­cant in­crease in sales and mar­ket share in SA and to main­tain this mo­men­tum it is ex­pand­ing as­sem­bly op­er­a­tions by ap­prox­i­mately 50%.

While this means cus­tomers can no longer buy trucks di­rect in Pine­town, six MAN deal­ers in KwaZu­luNatal pro­vide this and a va­ri­ety of sup­port op­tions to truck­ing op­er­a­tions, in­clud­ing MAN’s ProfiDrive driver train­ing. MAN has been build­ing trucks in Pine­town for al­most 60 years.

In Europe, MAN is now sell­ing a fully electric van to meet cities’ de­mand for greener trans­port. It can have a range of 160 km, but then the 1 700 kg pay­load shrinks to 950 kg.
