Sales of the MAN-based Nu-Track Pulse have reached the 100 milestone in 18 months, since its unveiling in Antrim in June 2014.

Paul Gardner, MAN Truck & Bus UK General Manager, said: “Nu-Track spotted a niche in the market and worked with MAN to create the Pulse to fulfil that.

“Its development took nine months from start to finish and the strength of the sales speak for themselves.

“Initially it was created to meet the needs of the market in Northern Ireland, but it has taken off and is proving extremely popular in the London boroughs.

“When orders are being placed it is tending to be for 10 at a time rather than one or two. We expect sales to continue growing over the next few months.”

Nu-Track and MAN Truck & Bus UK collaborated to bring the Pulse straight to Euro 6 on a 10-tonne TGL chassis with a four-cylinder 4.6 litre D0834 engine fitted as standard.

The Pulse’s front aspect retains the look of the TGL cab and is supplied as a chassis cab, with the parts necessary for conversion to a PCV. All the homologation work was carried out by MAN Truck & Bus UK.

Alistair Hamill, Nu-Track’s Operations Director, added: “We are delighted with the response thus far with the Pulse, but our intention is to further develop the product in order to maximize its potential.”
