[[Aktiengesellschaft|AG ]]''' is a German engineering company based in Munich, Germany.
MAN is one of Europe's leading manufacturers of engineering equipment and [[commercial vehicles]]. MAN supplies [[trucks]], buses, [[diesel engines]], turbine machinery, as well as industrial services and holds leading market positions in all its business areas. MAN AG is one of the top 30 companies listed on the German stock exchange (DAX). It is also the oldest company within the DAX. The company celebrates its 250th anniversary in 2008.<ref>[http://www.250-years-man.eu MAN AG]</ref> In 2007, its 55,000 employees generated annual sales of around €15.5 billion in 120 different countries. The company has joint ventures and other joint venture with local companies in India, Poland, Turkey, and the United States.
After the Second World War, M.A.N. GHH lost all its foreign operations and suffered heavy war damage. Allied Forces took control of all GHH companies and broke up the company, placing the steel production facilities into separate ownership. Thus the focus shifted towards the South German plants and commercial vehicles. In 1986, GHH was remerged into MAN with its headquarters in Munich.
On 18 September 2006, MAN made a €10.3 billion offer for a takeover of [[Scania]] AB, one of the leading truck and bus companies in Sweden. MAN AG bought 15.6% of the voting shares in Scania AB. Volkswagen Group, Scania's largest shareholder, acquired a stake of 20% of MAN, and has since raised that stake to 29%. VW has a majority stake in Scania, owning over 51% of the company. It was widely expected that the two truck manufacturers would be combined, and that a combined MAN-Scania would also absorb Volkswagen's Brazilian heavy truck operations. A more recent interview with VW CEO Martin Winterkorn stated that VW has no immediate plans to attempt to merge Scania and MAN, but he would also not rule out a MAN takeover of VW's Brazilian heavy truck.<ref>[http://uk.reuters.com/article/basicIndustries/idUKL1825367120080519 Reuters.com - VW won't merge VW, Scania and MAN brands - paper]</ref> It was also originally speculated that Volkswagen intended to acquire MAN Truck and Bus division by the end of 2008.<ref>[http://www.reuters.com/article/innovationNews/idUSWEB769220080305 Reuters.com - Volkswagen plans full MAN takeover in '08]</ref> This has not been officially confirmed and there has been no current action by VW in attempting to acquire MAN shares, or to buy the company's commercial vehicle division.

==Electrodynamic moving-off element==
MAN EDA concept is examining the stop-start automatic system, the requirement-specific electric drive for secondary units, the implementation of the [[clutch]] function, the synchronization of [[gear]] changes with the aid of an electrodynamic moving-off element (EDA) and the
[[booster ]] function for extra power.
Two distribution vehicles with parallel hybrid drives are currently being tested: one vehicle features a [[starter]]-[[alternator]] (MAN TGL OPTISTRANG) integrated in the clutch
[[enclosure|housing ]], the other vehicle, an MAN TGL EDA, is equipped with an electrodynamic moving-off element (EDA) developed together with [[ZF Friedrichshafen]].
The TGL EDA combines the fuel-saving potential of a hybrid drive with the advantages of a wear-free moving-off element. One of the main benefits of the EDA is its compactness; all components can be accommodated in the standard clutch housing. The diesel engine and the electric motor can either be used simultaneously or alternatively. On stopping both the diesel engine and the electric motor switch off thus the TGL EDA does not use any fuel nor does it produce any emissions or noise. As soon as the driver puts the vehicle in gear, the electric motor starts the diesel engine and simultaneously sets the vehicle in motion.
