Three steps to the perfect complete vehicle: Configuration, production, registration

Information for our body partners: From configuration and production up to registration.

No complete vehicle is like any other. However, one thing does not change: Together, we have to coordinate a large number of technical details precisely and reliably. Here you will find all the information on the MAN chassis: precise, comprehensive, and clearly presented.

The online services of our portals serve as a foundation. But the personal contacts with our vehicle and body specialists are at least as important. Find out here where and how you can access the various information and documents required in the body manufacturing process.

Step 1: Configuration

How to retrieve the data: With the order number via the MAN ABBI® vehicle list

There are two ways to get the technical data of your vehicle.

Either the vehicle is already included in the vehicle list in MAN ABBI®, in this case click on the MAN ABBI® link. The icons in the vehicle list take you directly to the technical data and drawings of the vehicle. There you can also find information about the scope of delivery and the delivery date.
Or you use the second possibility – the retrieval of technical data and drawings via our MANTED® online portal for technical vehicle data.

Our MANTED® online portal is the right place for you, no matter for which of our vehicles you need technical data or drawings. To retrieve documents, you only need to register first. After logging in, select the desired series under “Vehicle information”. There you will have immediate access to the vehicle-specific documents and information.

MAN in detail

Sophistication lies in the detail. For example, in how a component of our vehicles is disassembled and reassembled. Or in how a specific component is correctly installed in the chassis. If you need insider knowledge for one of your body projects, our portal for technical documentation (MAN PTD) is the right place to go: As a registered user, here you get access to numerous assembly and installation sketches and the company standards of MAN Truck & Bus SE.

WLTP values for MAN Vans

If you implement your customers’ body requirements based on one of our vans, WLTP is mandatory. WLTP stands for Worldwide harmonized Light-Duty-Vehicles Test Procedure. This new test procedure has been mandatory throughout the EU for type approval of new passenger cars and light commercial vehicles since September 1, 2017.
For you as a body builder, this means that you must prove the WLTP values of the complete vehicle for vehicle registration. The final dimensions and the vehicle weight must be taken into account, as well as any changes to the tyres.
In our MAN ABBI® Portal, we provide you with a calculation tool you can use to determine the required WLTP values quickly and easily. You will find the link to the tool in the MAN ABBI® menu bar and also as an icon in the vehicle list.

Customised technical specifics

Our experts are also happy to be personally available to you. For example, when it comes to determining the exact dimensions for a special body/chassis combination, determining the unladen weight or calculating the CO2 values. Or if you need project-related detailed drawings. For example, for the mounting position of power take-offs.

By the way: For our new truck generation, we have already stored many detailed documents for specifying particular requirements in the configurator at your disposal.

We are happy to assist with order-related dimensional determination, unladen weight & CO2 value determination, PTO installation positions, or drawing requests on special topics for our current series.
For the new Trucknology generation, you can already find a lot of data in the new C4S configurator. Log in to the MANTED® Portal and select the “Services > MANTED® online applications” section.

Find further information on MAN-cats® and ODIS as well as associated training courses in our MAN Service Portal.
