Porsche orders electric MAN TGM for Stuttgart factory18 December 2018

Porsche has commissioned a fully electric MAN eTGM for logistics operations at its Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen factory, where it is developing the first all-electric Porsche.

The zero-emission, 32-tonne truck will be operating on a 19km route between Porsche’s factory and its logistics partner in Freiberg, where the eTGM will save more than 30,000kg of CO2 per year.

The TGM 18.360 E 4x2 LL uses lithium ion batteries and has a range of 130km. A charging station at Freiberg can boost the truck’s range by a further 100km in 45 minutes.

MAN is planning to launch the first small series eTGM in 2019 and will incorporate feedback from Porsche in the vehicle’s development.

The eTGM is the latest step in Porsche’s ‘zero impact factory’ strategy, which will see the car maker moving to electric power for all logistics vehicles. The company already uses energy from renewable resources at all production sites, including green electricity for its railway logistics operations.
