MTU started in Germany in 1899 and was acquired by Mercedes-Benz in 1960. It is now a subsidiary of the Daimler-Benz Group. Its engines are widely used in ships, heavy vehicles and construction machinery, railway locomotives, and tanks. MTU not only manufactures diesel engines, but its main business is to manufacture complete sets of products for end users.


As a supplier of land, water and railway propulsion systems and power generation equipment engines, MTU has always been well-known worldwide for its high output, high efficiency, small size and durable products.


Although MTU is well-known in the world, its high and after-sales costs also limit the vast majority of MTU's products to be used only in critical areas such as warships, tanks, nuclear power, transport ships, and railway locomotives.

MTU's after-sales service is currently limited to European and American countries. There are very few service outlets in Asia, and the service quality is greatly reduced.

The engine technology adopted by MTU on yachts is relatively old and lacks innovation. The later maintenance cost is higher and the operability is slightly worse.
