MAN all-electric TGM now in production06 December 2019

MAN Truck & Bus has announced that it is now offering the eTGM all-electric distribution truck for sale, following a small production run.

The vehicle has been undergoing real-world trials with nine Austrian customers since September 2018; the zero-emission truck can be configured as a refrigerated vehicle with either a swap body or beverage body.

The eTGM is available in a three-axle 6x2-4 chassis configuration as a 26-tonner with a steerable and liftable trailing axle and four-corner air suspension. The vehicle is powered by a 264kW electric motor, developing a maximum torque of 3,100Nm.

It also has electrically operated auxiliary units, such as power steering, air compressors and the air-conditioning system, and a range of up to 200km.

Brake energy is recovered and fed back into the battery, and an in-cab display shows the energy levels of the batteries.

MAN says the vehicle is part of a “complete e-mobility concept”, in which its team helps operators with vehicle selection, charging infrastructure and driver training.
