MAN is about to release a new version of its TGE vans, also available with electric powertrain under the name eTGE. Redesigned workplace and new ADAS are the main features of the new version, named Next Level and available from May 2024 onwards, with order portfolio open in some European markets.

We’re talking about the largest package of technical innovations in the van still young history. The main focus in terms of comfort will be on the new dashboard with digital instrument display. The large display for controlling vehicle functions and the MAN Media Van infotainment system are some of the major upgrades.

The MAN Media Van consists of a 10.4-inch display with the standard functions DAB+, MAN Connect, App Connect and MAN SmartLink for smartphone integration. Further upgrades will include MAN Media Van Navigation and MAN Media Van Navigation Business, featuring Alexa integration in addition to the navigation function. The Business version also gets a 12.9-inch diagonal screen. Other dashboard highlights include the redesigned ergonomic multifunction steering wheel with integrated shift lever on the steering column (for automatic transmissions), the electronic parking brake and the Keyless Go function.

In addition, the MAN TGE Next Level will receive a new generation of control units, sensors and cameras on the hardware side with this model change. In the same step, the E/E architecture has been fundamentally renewed. This will enable a brilliant further development in the area of assistance and safety systems. With these innovations, the MAN van is expected to increase the safety of both its occupants and other road users, as some assistance systems will be part of the standard equipment for the first time, including Traffic Sign Information, Active Lane Guard System, Fatigue Detection and Parking Assist.


Some more details to be revealed soon

“With this model year change, the music is playing under the hood and in the interior. And it’s really loud. We don’t want to reveal all the details of the MAN TGE Next Level just yet, but our customers can look forward to a van that will represent a milestone in terms of safety and comfort,” summarized Martin Imhoff, Head of Van Product Marketing at MAN Truck & Bus.
