The New MAN TGE, launched in the UK at the 2017 CV Show in Birmingham 25 April, has scooped its first award of 2018 – Best Large Panel Van at VansA2Z and Van FleetWorld Awards.

Neil McIntee, Editor of VansA2Z, said of the win: "When we first drove the MAN TGE it was instantly obvious that we were looking at a quality product with a remarkably high build quality. As a newcomer to the industry the TGE simply hit the roads running and in doing so offered van operators high fuel-efficient, high payloads and large carrying capacities.

“MAN, part of VW Commercial Vehicle group, has grasped the fact that both customer and vehicle service is key and in offering van customers, big or small, a network of dealerships offering extended hours and round-the-clock servicing, is just what the market requires.”

Judged by an independent expert panel, the individual categories sought to recognise innovative new products and services which cut costs, streamline operations and contribute to safer, more fuel-efficient fleets.

“Deciding on the winner of Best Large Panel Van 2018 was not easy,” continued Neil. “The standard of every model in the market being so high, but it goes to a range of vans that raised the bar once again in terms of usability and technology and this is why we jointly awarded this to the MAN TGE and its very close relative to the Volkswagen Crafter.”

Stuart Beeton, Head of Van MAN UK Ltd said: “We’re delighted that the TGE has been recognised by VansA2Z and Van FleetWorld and awarded Best Large Panel Van 2018. To win one of these highly coveted awards is a true indication that the TGE range, with its many attributes, is exactly what the market requires.”

“All MAN TGE vans are supported by a nationwide commercial vehicle Dealer network, with many operating extended hours, including round-the-clock servicing, which makes the TGE an attractive proposition to customers. The entire TGE range also benefits from MAN’s Mobile24 24-hour breakdown service, which in the unlikely event of a breakdown guarantees 24/7 emergency roadside assistance 365 days of the year.”

The 2018 Van Awards is a celebration of the very best light commercial vehicles and service providers. Attended by a wide range of manufacturers and suppliers, the Van Awards turned the spotlight on those companies that are leading the way, with innovative light commercial vehicle solutions, both in van manufacture and in support services.

Trophies were presented at a networking lunch, held at Twickenham Stadium, London.
