MAN Truck & Bus is building a small production run of all-electric trucks at its plant in Steyr, Austria. The company has been testing its zero-emission TGM 26.360 E LL distribution truck with nine Austrian companies from the CNL Council for Sustainable Logistics consortium for more than a year, and now it is launching sales of the vehicle under the name of MAN eTGM. The truck, powered by Volkswagen lithium-ion batteries, is designed to carry out medium and heavy-duty distribution duties. It can be configured as a refrigerated vehicle, as an example, with either a swap body or beverage body.
The MAN eTGM
MAN says that the 354-horsepower (264-kilowatt) electric truck can carry a payload comparable to a similar truck with an internal combustion engine. Its maximum torque rating is 3,100 newton metres. The eTGM has a range of up to 200 kilometres, depending on conditions and terrain.
MAN configures the 26-tonne truck with a three-axle 6x2-4 chassis. It has a steerable and liftable trailing axle and air suspension on all four corners. An energy management system controls the air conditioning, compressors, and power steering, and also recoups electricity through regenerative braking and deceleration systems.
