The new MAN Truck Generation recently won two iF Design Awards, adding to the range’s trophy collection, which also includes a Red Dot Design Award and a Gold award from the German Design Awards. The iF Design Award started in 1954 and honours design achievements across many disciplines, including product, packaging, communication and service design, architecture and interior design, user experience, user interface, and more. The MAN Truck Generation competed against nearly 10,000 entries from 52 countries and was selected by an independent, 98-member international jury for its harmony of materials and colours. The MAN TGX also won an award for functional design.

About The New Truck Generation

More than 700 truck drivers were involved in developing the new Truck Generation, driving simulator and test track studies to contribute their experience to the trucks’ design. Improvements were made to the instrument cluster, media and navigation system, and the interior remote control for comfort and entertainment functions in long-distance cabs. Seating and sleeping areas were ergonomically designed, and assistance and safety systems and future-oriented connectivity equipment have also been upgraded.

The new MAN TGX also won an award for the special functionality of its design. (Photo courtesy of MAN.)

"On the outside, the dynamic design combines progress, tradition, and sustainability, and creates a powerful and emotional truck personality with the lion logo,” says MAN Head of Truck Design Rudolf Kupitza. “Inside, it is consistently geared to the driver's need for an intuitive, safe, and comfortable workplace and living space, even for long tours."
