Together with DEKRA, the commercial vehicle specialist publications trans aktuell, lastauto omnibus and FERNFAHRER went hunting for the best commercial vehicles and the best brands in the commercial vehicle industry again this year. A huge number of readers responded to their call. More than 250 commercial vehicles across 16 categories – from vans through to heavy-duty trucks and intercity buses, were in the running for the “Best Truck”, “Best Van” and “Best Bus” awards at the ETM Awards. “This makes us even prouder that MAN Truck & Bus was able to scoop ten of the coveted ETM Awards. This is an incredible success story!” says Göran Nyberg, Executive Board Member for Sales and Marketing at MAN Truck & Bus, who adds: “The fact that our entire product family was able to win people over shows how positively our brands are perceived and how satisfied our customers and drivers are with our trucks, buses and vans. A success story like this would never have been possible without our team, who worked tirelessly and with great motivation to secure the best possible result.”
MAN Wins in all Three Electric Vehicle Categories
Awards were also presented for three additional categories covering electric vans, electric buses and electric trucks. And MAN Truck & Bus would not be denied in any of the three categories. The MAN eTGE, MAN Lion's City 12 E and MAN eTGM took first place in their respective categories. “As such, the entire MAN electric fleet won an award. This proves that our highly modern electric vehicles make an outstanding impression,” says Nyberg.
MAN Buses are Streets Ahead
MAN’s buses also received rave reviews. MAN Lion’s City G with MAN EfficientHybrid came out on top in the city bus category. MAN Lion's Intercity took the intercity bus category and MAN Lion’s Coach, the current “Coach of the Year 2020”, took the coach category. MAN Service Complete also took first place for the truck-trailer service. “With this award, the readers are paying homage to our high level of service and our customer-focussed approach,” explains Christoph Huber, CEO of MAN Truck & Bus Deutschland GmbH, who adds: “We are absolutely delighted that our vehicles and our services have been given such great ratings, particularly in our domestic market of Germany. It is all the more meaningful that these ratings are provided by the people who use the vehicles and services every day. We couldn’t have hoped for better praise.” Even the group’s own range of financial services won through in the readers’ choice: MAN Financial Services was successful in taking home one of the coveted prizes for the second year running, winning the “truck leasing/financing” category by some distance.
