Major Israeli operator adds to its substantial fleet of MAN vehicles

ISRAEL Egged, one of the world’s largest bus companies, has purchased 75 low-floor MAN A22 city buses powered by 320hp Euro 6 engines. Assembly is being carried out by Israeli body manufacturer Haargaz.

“Egged opted for MAN for various reasons, including the high reliability and quality of our vehicles,” said Roman Sitte, Vice President of Center Importer Europe/CIS at MAN Truck & Bus.

Around 40 of these new city buses based on MAN chassis have gone into service over the last two months.

With its fleet of over 4,000 vehicles – more than 1,500 of which come from MAN – Egged transports just under one million passengers every day and operates almost half of all public transport in Israel. Day after day, the company’s vehicles cover over 700,000 kilometres on 945 intercity and city routes.
