In fiscal year 2006 the company, with some 36,000 employees, generated a turnover of € 8.7 billion with sales of just under 80,000 trucks and over 7,300 buses and bus chassis. Compared with the previous year, the operating result rose by € 201 million to a record value of € 670 million (€ 698 million including the result from financing).

The market share for trucks over 6 tonnes in Europe is 15.9 percent. On the European bus market the market share for fiscal year 2006 was 15.4 percent.

Versatile truck program.
MAN’s truck programme ranges from TGL (7.5 – 12 t) to the medium range in the Trucknology® Generation TGM (14 – 18 t) through to the TGA range, which covers permissible gross weights ranging from 18 to 50 tonnes.

The TGL was awarded the “Truck of the Year 2006“ title. The current heavy TGA range had already won this title in 2001. TGL is the sixth MAN range to win this award – a success which no other manufacturer has so far been able to achieve. In 2007 the TGA will be continued with the new TGS and TGX ranges.
