The 16-metre MAN semitrailers with their festive illumination will be touring the entire country, from Kiel to Hamburg, Leipzig, Dresden, Zwickau, Plauen, Coburg, Salzgitter, Wiesbaden, Cologne, Augsburg and Munich to Regensburg. The two Christmas trucks will be visiting children’s hospitals, kindergartens and other social institutions, taking with them truck models made of chocolate and sliding tile puzzles with the MAN Christmas motif as small gifts for the children. The trucks will also be visiting the MAN plants, branches and service partners, as well as some Christmas markets.
Trainees from MAN Nutzfahrzeuge AG in Munich have transformed the two metallic red 540-hp MAN TGX semitrailers into real Christmas trucks: 200-metre long chains of lights, able to withstand weather and washing systems, have been mounted on each of the tractors and their trailers, which have been fittingly decorated for Christmas. The trainees framed the radiator grilles with hundreds and hundreds of LEDs. What makes this year special is the way the trailers have been decorated: the children who make up the motif are all at the kindergarten of the MAN plant in Munich, “Löwenkinder”.
