MAN significantly expands eTruck portfolio; more than 1M configurable eTruck variants

MAN Truck & Bus is significantly expanding the eTruck portfolio for its customers. The number of configurable eTruck variants has risen to more than one million from the three customer combinations previously defined.

The new chassis versions of the eTGX and eTGS can be highly customized with a variety of wheelbases, cab versions, engine performance classes, battery combinations, charging connection positions and numerous other industry-typical features.

MAN is launching the new 4x2 and 6x2 chassis range in time for IFAT, the world’s leading trade fair for water, sewage, waste and raw materials management, which will take place in Munich from 13 to 17 May 2024. They are the ideal vehicle base for the wide variety of application requirements in municipal and utility management.

With an expected predicted performance period of up to 1.6 million kilometers or up to 15 years, depending on the type of application, the batteries are also extremely durable and extremely suitable for use in municipalities.


New MAN eTruck: flexibly configurable with a variety of wheelbases, cabs, engine outputs, battery combinations and sector-specific equipment. Battery performance period of up to 1.6 million kilometers or up to 15 years, depending on use.

With their three, four, five or six modularly combinable and variably positionable batteries, the 18 to 28 tonne MAN eTGX and MAN eTGS chassis with their optional 333, 449 or 544 electric hp offer flexible free space for body components on the vehicle frame, a wide range of mechanical and electric drives for body functions in various performance classes, up to nine different wheelbases, six cab variants, steered and non-steered trailing axles, leaf air and full air suspension, driving programs specially adapted to the respective application and numerous other industry-typical features.

Waste collection vehicles as rear or side loaders, roll-off and skip loaders, e.g. for building rubble skips, platform trucks, three-way tippers and crane tippers for transporting building materials, as well as snow clearing vehicles or aerial work platforms can be realized on the new MAN eTruck chassis, along with many other body solutions.

Even for the shortest wheelbase of 3.75 meters, five batteries with a usable capacity of up to 400 kWh are available. This corresponds to a range of up to 500 kilometers without intermediate charging. Typical daily mileages in municipal and waste disposal applications are therefore also possible with a smaller number of batteries. In return, the available payload increases by up to 2,400 kilograms.

In line with the new eTruck range, MAN is presenting its 360-degree eMobility Consulting at the IFAT fair. The advice on switching to electromobility includes customer-specific analyses of vehicle deployment and charging infrastructure requirements.

The charging stations themselves are also part of the offer through co-operations with charging infrastructure suppliers. In addition, service contracts and financing solutions tailored specifically to electromobility and the needs of the environmental technology sector as well as numerous digital services are available for the use of the new electric lions.

In addition to a new MAN eTGS with roll-off tipper body, MAN will also be showcasing its vehicle expertise for a wide range of environmental technology bodies at IFAT with conventionally powered exhibits. A compact and maneuverable waste collector for city centers and pedestrian zones based on the MAN TGE van and an MAN TGM with winter service equipment represent the tonnage classes from 3.5 to 18 tonnes.

MAN Individual will be presenting its range of industry-specific chassis and cab customizations at IFAT. As a premiere in the area of safety and assistance systems, MAN will be presenting the compatibility of emergency brake assistance function and snow plough mounting plate at the trade fair. This is made possible by a newly positioned radar sensor that is not covered by the plate mounted on the front of the vehicle.



Is this not the same MAN Truck and Bus that caused so much controversy last week by announcing that they were going to offer a hydrogen ICE engine version of their heavy duty trucks?

From their web site:

"Battery electric vehicles are the deciding factor for us on our road towards zero-emission commercial vehicle mobility. Alongside these, hydrogen-powered vehicles could also play a role, and MAN is working on those too."

I think that they realize that the future is mostly battery electric. I really doubt that we will see hydrogen used for ground transport in the US other than for a few research type projects.
