MAN is using alternative drive concepts and digital tools to drive a mobility and transportation revolution while at the same time helping its customers to meet the emissions requirements of both today and tomorrow. This is an area in which we have set ourselves ambitious targets: for example, all MAN vehicles on the road are to generate zero local emissions by 2050. Our pioneering electric eTGE van has already been on the road for two years. A new addition to the portfolio family is the eTGM distribution truck, which we are now producing in small series and which won the European Transport Award for Sustainability in 2020.

DELIVERY VEHICLES
OF THE FUTURE

Increasing road traffic and air pollution are putting major cities like Munich under increasing pressure to take action. Delivery vehicles are an important lever when it comes to relieving the strain on the road network. Studies have shown that shifting inner-city deliveries to off-peak hours results in quicker and more efficient logistic processes. Also, the impact on the overall traffic is significantly lower than during peak hours. The use of electric trucks allows for a further reduction in noise and CO₂ emissions. This is why MAN is participating in the EIT Urban

Mobility’s ZEUS (Zero Emission off-peak Urban deliverieS) project for goods distribution in innercity areas with its eTGM electric truck. The results are promising: the test runs conducted with a fully electric MAN eTGM distribution truck revealed a time saving of 15 to 30%, which can be achieved by rescheduling the time window for inner-city deliveries to off-peak hours. At the same time, it was possible to improve punctuality and logistics efficiency to a score of almost 100%. Perceived noise was also reduced by at least a quarter.

TURNAROUND IN LOCAL
PUBLIC TRANSPORT
TURNAROUND
IN LOCAL PUBLIC TRANSPORT

The transformation of local public transport is essential if we want to maintain the quality of life in our cities. Electric mobility plays a key role in this process. MAN is working intensively with public transportation companies and municipal authorities to help push ahead with the switch to alternative mobility solutions. The series production of the all-electric MAN Lion’s City E at MAN’s Polish plant in Starachowice, which started in October 2020, marks an important milestone in this regard. With its battery electric city buses, MAN is setting standards for a generation of zero-emission city buses.

Series production began with the Lion’s City E as a 12-meter rigid version with space for 88 passengers. The first few customer vehicles have rolled off the production line for Verkehrsbetriebe Hamburg Holstein (VHH), with more to follow for major orders placed by the cities of Malmö and

Nuremberg. The all-electric Lion’s City 18 E articulated bus went into series production in April 2021. The bus can accommodate up to 120 passengers. The electric buses reliably offer a range of between 200 km and up to 270 km in favorable conditions over the entire service life of the batteries.

Intensive field trials were performed in scheduled service operations before the green light was given for series production. Since the handover of the first two vehicles for everyday use in Hamburg at the end of 2019, the MAN electric bus demo fleet has been on the road across Europe — including in Germany, Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands, and France. The next round of the roadshow is scheduled to start in 2021, with the vehicles making their debut on the road in countries including Russia, Italy, Portugal, Romania, and Lithuania.

PAUSING FOR THE CLIMATE
PAUSING FOR THE CLIMATE

MAN is helping to drive a transportation revolution with the help of alternative drive concepts and digital tools. Climate-friendly truck and bus transportation is already a reality today – thanks in part to innovations from MAN. All MAN vehicles on the road are to generate zero local emissions by 2050. For MAN, taking action to protect our climate is something that begins within the Company. For example, we are working at full tilt on further reducing our production-related CO₂ emissions. This also includes working with employees to develop ideas to help them reduce their own carbon footprint further. This prompted MAN to join the VW Group’s Earth Day initiative

on April 22, 2021. Based on the motto “Restore the World – Stell die Welt wieder her,” MAN employees from across the globe were called upon to take an hour out to reflect on their own carbon footprint and develop ideas for reducing it.

Four entries were selected from more than 70 submissions featuring ideas for reducing carbon emissions, focusing in particular on mobility, biodiversity, nutrition, and waste handling. The people behind the ideas are given €5,000 to donate to an environmental charity of their choice.
