MAN LATIN AMERICA SUPPLIES 5,200 VEHICLES TO BRAZIL (ENGLISH)

     (The following press release from MAN SE was received by e-mail. It was 
not confirmed by the sender.) 
Press Release: MAN Latin America supplies 5,200 vehicles to the Brazilian 
government  
Further contract for 100 heavy trucks to haulage company in Rio Grande do Sul 
MAN Latin America has been commissioned to supply the Brazilian Department of 
Agricultural Development (MDA) with 1,747 trucks and the Department of 
Education of São Paulo State (Seduc) with 2,603 buses. The Army's order for 860 
vehicles in August brings the total to 5,210 vehicles. These contracts make MAN 
Latin America the government's largest commercial vehicle supplier in 2013 with 
its Volkswagen and MAN brands. 
The last quarter saw the Brazilian market leader secure more contracts from the 
private sector again. MAN Latin America concluded a contract with haulage 
company Gabardo Transportes, which has the biggest truck fleet in Rio Grande do 
Sul, to supply 100 heavy trucks.  
 However, the largest demand for trucks and buses is still in the public 
sector. The vehicles needed under the Growth Acceleration Program (PAC) make 
the Brazilian government agencies key customers, which in turn stimulates the 
market. The vehicles are intended to help the country's development.  
 Equipped with containers or tanks, the 1,747 trucks commissioned by the 
Brazilian Department of Agricultural Development (MDA) will be used in the 
transportation of drinking water, the construction of fortifications, and the 
maintenance of roads used for farming. The vehicles are due to be delivered by 
April 2014 to 14 Brazilian states in the North, Northeast, Midwest, and 
Southeast. 
 The 2,603 "Volksbuses" ordered by Seduc will be used to transport 
schoolchildren in São Paulo. 
 Market launch 
The government contract announcement coincides with the launch of MAN Latin 
America's new truck series at the Fenatran transportation trade fair which will 
take place from October 28 through November 1, 2013, in São Paulo.  
 The company's heavy-duty Constellation series has been expanded to include new 
19.420, 25.420, and 26.420 trucks with an engine boasting 420 horsepower and 
automatic transmission fitted as standard. No other truck segment in Brazil is 
growing as rapidly as this one.
