The German manufacturer has made the balance of its activity in Spain during the previous year and has anticipated the forecasts for this year in course.

The Commercial Director of Trucks MAN Truck & Bus Iberia, Jaime Baquedano, was very satisfied by the results achieved during the previous year: “We are the heaviest brand that has grown the most (+ 8%)”. At the time of analyzing the evolution of the market, he was convinced that the tractors that lowered their sales by 4.5% in the analyzed course, are a segment that “has practically reached saturation”, and points out that the Rigid (Distribution and Works) will maintain its positive trend during the current year (+ 19.4% in 2017). MAN closed the previous year with more than 3100 registered units (> 6tm) and a market share of 13.1% in Spain, which places it second in the podium.The German company grew in all segments, with particularly significant increases in the segments from 11 to 15,9 tons (2.9 points) and more than 16 tons (0.9 points).

As for the vans, a market in which MAN began its activity in 2017 with the commercialization of the TGE, “the objective is to reach the customers of trucks with multigame products, small Rent a Car and self-employed”.

MAN TopUsed: a year of record

The VO truck division also had a good exercise. “Our sales have grown by 26.6% in 2017, we have reached a record number (1762 units)”. Spain has positioned itself as the third market in sales of MAn TopUsed trucks worldwide. The goals of this area for the coming months will be to continue to improve the residual value of vehicles, expand the MAN TopUsed network in the peninsula and encourage its presence in large fleets. Finally, they have announced a change campaign for TGA by TGX under very advantageous conditions.
