Able to compete with the world elite brands
New generation MAZ-MAN trucks were among the finalists of the Best Commercial Vehicle in Russia-2012 Contest, taking third place in the most prestigious category: ‘Truck of the Year’
The awards ceremony was held in Moscow, at the Autotrans-2012 exhibition. MAZ-MAN was the only domestic producer to reach the final, competing against global brands such as Ford Cargo and HINO — the main producer of trucks in Japan, with sales of over 100,000 units per year.
The main criteria for selection include the contribution of new vehicles to improving on past efficiency, technical solutions, operating costs, sales, financial terms of acquisition and availability of service and maintenance. Marks are given by a jury of journalists and editors from respected automobile publications with many years of experience of taking part in test drives and displays of new equipment.
Today, MAZ-MAN boasts over 20 truck models and modifications: bolster-type tractors, dump trucks and chassis, using modern MAN D08 and D20 diesel engines and engines with a lower laden mass. These have been refined using innovative technical solutions and new materials, while meeting EURO-3 to EURO-5 standards.
Belarusian-German joint MAZ-MAN JSC manufactures modern heavy-load trucks of European class for regional and international transportation and construction, as well as creating special machinery. Its production capacity is up to 3,000 vehicles per year.
