As orginally reported by our sister publication Commerical Motor, Following the international launch of the MAN eTGX at the IAA Transportation Show in Hannover in 2022, the truck is now in production and available for UK customers. When order books opened in October last year, MAN received 700 orders in the first three months.


The two most recent additions to MAN’s electric truck portfolio includes the eTGX tractor and eTGS rigid ranges. 

Batteries for the vehicles are assembled at MAN’s facility in Nuremberg. Several battery options are available to suit specific range and payload requirements. Six battery packs offer a capacity of 480kWh and a range of up to 400km, while five battery packs give a capacity of 400kWh and a range of 325km. The range drops to 260km with four battery packs. The rigid eTGS is available with three battery packs with a capacity of 240kWh and range of 195km. With Charging rates up to 750kW a 45-minute charge can allow the eTGX with six batteries to cover up to 800km in a day. 

Along with multiple battery options, nine different wheelbases are available with six cab variants, 4x2 or 6x2 configurations, steered and non-steered trail axles, leaf, air and full air suspension. Rigid chassis are available from 18 to 28 tonnes. 

To support customers in their transition to zero-tailpipe-emission vehicles, MAN has an eMobility consulting service. This covers advice on the most suitable vehicle for a business, cost optimisation, route analysis, fleet optimisation and charging infrastructure advice. MAN’s eReadyCheck is another tool for customers to use to see if their current delivery routes could be completed in an electric vehicle. MAN eManager also allows fleet managers to monitor the charge status of their vehicles.
