MAN Engines – an MAN Truck & Bus AG business unit

We develop, manufacture and sell pioneering products of excellent quality for an endless array of applications. As well as being used in the Group’s own trucks, buses and coaches, you can rely on our engines

to drive your commercial vehicles, power generation and cogeneration systems, agricultural machinery, rail, marine and special-purpose vehicles, or custom and tailor-made equipment.

Nuremberg: international centre of engine excellence

It’s the place where engines mean everything. At MAN Truck & Bus AG’s international centre of engine excellence, we devote every second to ensuring that your equipment is in great shape – making it as efficient and long-lasting as possible.

This is the nerve centre where all of MAN Truck & Bus AG’s engine expertise is clustered in one location. Around 4,000 experienced staff work tirelessly on MAN engines’ development, design and production through to sales and after sales. The sprawling premises may be the size of 50 association football pitches, but close lines of communication help to ensure efficient collaboration and rapid experience sharing, which is reflected in the quality of our MAN engines.

In addition, by making selected core components for our engines on site, we can guarantee assured, top-level product quality.

Before mass production, all engine series undergo comprehensive testing in modern testing facilities. These are also tested under everyday conditions in field trials and optimised for real-world use.

Each engine is put through a functional test before leaving the plant. During the hot test, the engine runs through a series of performance, noise and leakage checks. In 2006, MAN Truck & Bus was also the first commercial vehicle manufacturer to introduce the modern cold test method, which is fast, reliable and particularly environmentally friendly.

Key technologies

As a business unit of MAN Truck & Bus – and, in turn, a part of the Traton Group – MAN Engines benefits hugely from a wealth of experience in mass production of commercial vehicle engines. Our key technologies and meticulously developed parts ensure that the future of modern engine series is safe for all original manufacturers.

MAN Engines delivers maximum efficiency. By using modern, state-of-the-art technologies, we can provide the lowest fuel consumption levels, top power-to-weight ratios and maximum reliability, all while preserving longevity. And we can optimise our engines to suit your specific needs and meet your exact specifications. MAN Engines offers tailor-made solutions for your area of application, setting you apart from the competition.

With around 100,000 engines rolling off the production line each year, you can benefit from exhaustively engineered components, cutting-edge technologies and our experience from mass production. We harness this body of knowledge when modifying our engines for the application at hand, ensuring high quality.

MAN Truck & Bus is working intensively on the implementation of engine technologies aimed at a sustainable reduction in fuel consumption and emissions. Constant increases in diesel and gas engine efficiency, all despite additional exhaust gas aftertreatment systems, highlights the depth of engine excellence present at MAN Truck & Bus.
