MAN eTGM trialled in German construction logistics21 January 2022

The first battery-electric truck in the building materials trade in Germany was recently put into operation by building materials distributor Stark Deutschland. The MAN eTGM 26-tonner, which was co-financed by the federal state of Hesse, will deliver building materials to construction sites.

Charging stations with 55kW charging power have been set up at the Frankfurt am Main and Darmstadt branches of Raab Karcher, a brand of STARK Germany. The MAN eTGM will start and end its tours there, a journey of some 20 miles. As part of the practical test, data will be collected in the coming months to investigate the potential of eTrucks in delivery traffic. Also involved is the Fulda University of Applied Sciences.

The range of the MAN TGM 26.360 E LL, as its official type designation is, is up to 200 kilometres, depending on the area of operation, climatic and topographical conditions. The eTGM is powered by a 264kW (355bhp) electric motor that provides a maximum torque of 3,100 Nm. Ancillary units such as the power steering, air compressor and air conditioning are operated electrically and controlled by the energy management system according to demand, thus saving energy. The batteries can be charged either with a charging power of 22 or 44kW with alternating current or via high-power charging with up to 150 kW/800V direct current. In addition, the vehicle is equipped with an electric truck-mounted forklift, which has a payload of up to 2.5 tonnes and is powered by a 13 kW electric motor.
