The jury, which was made up of top international trade journalists, praised the TGX 18.510 as being particularly fuel-saving, efficient, and environmentally friendly. The title is one of numerous international awards that MAN’s new generation of trucks has already won since its market launch in February 2020, including the International Truck of the Year 2021 as well as design prizes such as the Red Dot Design and German Design Award.

The “Sustainable Truck of the Year” competition, now in its sixth year, was launched by the Italian magazine “Vado e Torno,” which specializes in sustainable transport issues. The focus is on sustainability innovations for road freight transport that are already available on the market. The coveted award is presented in three categories — tractor unit, distribution and van — on the basis of a detailed evaluation concept for sustainability and efficiency. This takes into account not only the reduction of emissions, but also other aspects of the vehicle’s impact on the environment, safety and people’s quality of life, as well as the sustainability of the entire production cycle. Aspects of user comfort are also included in the assessment.

Accordingly, the jury justified its vote for the MAN TGX 18.510: «The latest generation of the MAN TGX has raised the bar for quality and efficiency. Further refined aerodynamics improve air flows to the benefit of lower drag, resulting in fuel savings and lower emissions. Efficient kinematics are ensured by the proven 12,4 liter engine with 510 hp in combination with the TipMatic transmission. The comfortable and functional cab is designed to make you feel at home both while driving and during breaks on board.»
