eMAN has the power

Porsche has put a full electric MAN eTGM, the first vehicle of its kind in Germany, to work at its Stuttgart factory. The 32-tonne 360hp truck uses Li-ion batteries, has a range of 130km and can be fast-charged in 45 minutes.

“With the MAN eTGM, electric commercial vehicles have taken a big step towards maturity and can now reliably play on their strengths in day-to-day operations,” says a Porsche spokesperson. “The findings gained together with Porsche in regular plant logistics will then feed into a first small series, which we would like to offer as early as this year.”

The vehicle is used in delivery traffic on the nearly 19km-long route between Freiberg at the Neckar operation site of logistics partner LGI Logistics Group International GmbH and the Porsche plant in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen. In total, the use of the eTruck avoids more than 30,000kg of CO2 annually.
