MAN has released the first pictures of its new panel van, the MAN TGE.

Based on the Volkswagen Crafter and built at Volkswagen’s new plant in Poland, the TGE will be powered by a 2-litre TDI engine with four power ratings of 101hp, 121hp, 138hp and 174hp. 

The three lower-powered engines will all use a single turbocharged unit, but the 174hp engine gets a twin turbo. 

Like the VW Crafter, the TGE range will span 3- to 5.5 tonnes, but importantly for MAN it now means its portfolio spans 3-tonne to 44-tonne GVW.

Front-, rear- and all-wheel-drive models will all feature in the MAN TGE’s range, with two wheelbase lengths, three roof heights and three vehicle lengths of 5,983mm, 6,833mm and 7,388mm. 

Maximum payload for a 3.5-tonne van will be close to 1,500kg, with a load volume on the largest vans in excess of 18m3 thanks to vehicle heights of 2,340mm, 2,575mm, and 2,800mm.

Production will start in April 2017, with order books opening a month earlier. 

Expect a staggered launch throughout Europe with deliveries beginning in the early summer, and UK models arriving in the autumn.
