The business says factory orders placed for MAN TGS and TGX trucks will now include ACC, which automatically regulates velocity and distance in relation to the vehicle in front when travelling over 25km/h.

"The TGS and TGX platforms already include key safety features such as electronic stability programme, which incorporates dynamic stability and rollover prevention," Dean Hoverd, national sales manager—trucks, Penske New Zealand, says.

"There are many systems on the market that use radar only, however, MAN’s market-leading ACC comprises both radar and camera to detect speed and distance and adapts the speed of the vehicle including braking if necessary.

"When combining the safety package with great fuel economy and low whole-of-life costs, MAN really does offer a competitive overall package that makes good business sense," he says
