• Electricity – the climate-friendly drive technology

    With zero pollutant emissions and low noise, plus a low carbon footprint when the power is renewably generated, electricity is set to be the drive technology of the future – around town and on shorter journeys at least. By 2020, as a step to expanding electric mobility in the commercial vehicle sector, we plan to begin volume production of an all-electric city bus and an eTruck. Our economically robust eMobility solutions are being developed in close collaboration with cities and logistics partners.

    Electric trucks

    Paving the way for electric drive in medium- and heavy-duty distribution, at the 2016 Commercial Vehicles Trade Fair in Hanover (IAA) MAN Truck & Bus unveiled the new MAN eTruck, an electrically powered TGS semitrailer tractor. This concept vehicle meets the main requirements for urban delivery vehicles of the future, combining generous cargo space with a low unladen weight, zero emissions, and very quiet operation. Field testing of this vehicle by nine partners from the Austrian Council for Sustainable Logistics (CNL) will begin in 2017.

    Electric buses

    Electric bus development at MAN is based on a modular concept. Charging technologies can be freely selected and combined and the number of battery modules can be varied – in line with individual requirements in terms of driving range and transportation capacity.

    MAN is partnering with a number of cities, including Munich and Hamburg, to expand the development of alternative-powered line-service buses. One of the aims is to develop a cost-optimized zero-emission concept for electric mobility.

    Hybrid buses

    Our MAN Lion’s City bus is already available in a hybrid version. The MAN Lion’s City Hybrid bus is powered by a frugal internal combustion engine and an efficient electric motor. Up to 30% annual fuel savings can be achieved with the MAN Lion’s City Hybrid Bus.

  • Efficient diesel engines

    Ever since Rudolf Diesel developed the diesel engine in the late 19th century together with engineers at Maschinenfabrik Augsburg (a forerunner of the MAN Group), we have worked continuously to improve the efficiency and performance of this internal combustion engine – with impressive results. Today, economical and efficient transportation and energy solutions from MAN are in operation all over the world.

  • Low-pollutant natural gas engines

    As a clean fuel, natural gas plays a key role in our product portfolio. As well as providing low-emission propulsion for buses, trucks, and ships, natural gas is also ideally suited for use in the power generation industry.
