MAN is pushing truck electrification

MAN Truck & Bus is accelerating the transition to zero-emission commercial vehicles. The start of the production of heavy e-trucks in Munich is now scheduled for the beginning of 2024 with a timely delivery of initially 200 units. This is almost a year earlier than originally planned. MAN presented a near-series prototype of the new electric truck to the public for the first time on February 17 in Nuremberg. In addition to the new zero-emission drives, MAN is developing extensive e-mobility solutions that prepare customers for vehicle use at an early stage. “We need to drive the electrification of our fleet even faster. However, we will only succeed in ramping up e-mobility across the board if we accompany our customers in their switch and convince them of this. To this end, we are creating holistic digital solutions and charging offers,” explains Alexander Vlaskamp, ​​CEO of MAN Truck & Bus.

In addition to the faster ramp-up of electromobility, the commercial vehicle manufacturer is intensifying its research in the field of hydrogen mobility. For this, the Bavarian Prime Minister Dr. Markus Söder, together with Economics Minister Hubert Aiwanger, today presented a funding commitment of EUR 8.5 million for the future project “Bavarian fleet”. In 2024, MAN trucks with hydrogen fuel cells are to demonstrate their suitability to five customers in Bavaria. www.mantruckandbus.com
