Technical data

Vehicle data via MAN ABBI vehicle list

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. This is where you can also catch up on the scope of delivery and the delivery date.

Or you can use the second option – retrieving the technical data and drawings via our MANTED® online portal for technical vehicle data.

Retrieving vehicle data via MANTED

With the basic vehicle number / MAN code via MANTED

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.

Standards and detailed drawings

MAN vehicles at a glance

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, MAN TGE

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 1 September 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.

Special requirements

Special requirements – specialist advice from MAN

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.

Vehicle parameterisation

MAN Service Portal

How chassis and body become one

In order for your body and chassis to work together functionally and without errors, the vehicle systems must be parameterised accordingly. With our MAN-cats® (trucks) and ODIS (van) diagnostic system, you or a MAN workshop can carry out this task easily and safely. Find further information on MAN-cats® and ODIS as well as associated training courses in our MAN Service portal.
