At IFAT 2024 in Munich we had the opportunity to see the brand-new versatile chassis versions of the MAN eTruck (namely, the eTGS and eTGX), the first electric truck models released by the Lion’s brand. The new chassis versions of the eTGX and eTGS can be highly customised with a variety of wheelbases, cab versions, engine performance classes, battery combinations, charging connection positions and numerous other industry-typical features. MAN presented the new 4×2 and 6×2 chassis range at IFAT for the very first time.


“Bodybuilder and industry expertise has always been in MAN’s DNA. In the development of our new eTrucks, we also incorporated the expertise of body manufacturers at an early stage and in a targeted manner. This enables us to offer every customer the optimum combination of electric vehicle and body for their application requirements. The new MAN eTruck fulfils all the prerequisites for the sustainable electrification of the municipal and utility sector,” said Friedrich Baumann, Executive Board Member for Sales and Customer Solutions at MAN Truck & Bus, at the MAN press conference at IFAT.

Waste collection vehicles as rear or side loaders, roll-off and skip loaders, e.g. for building rubble skips, platform trucks, three-way tippers and crane tippers for transporting building materials, as well as snow clearing vehicles or aerial work platforms can be easily realised on the new MAN eTruck chassis, along with many other body solutions.


And with long ranges, because even for the shortest wheelbase of 3.75 metres, five batteries with a usable capacity of up to 400 kWh are available. s corresponds to a range of up to 500 kilometres without intermediate charging. Also, in line with the new eTruck range, MAN is presenting its 360-degree eMobility Consulting at the IFAT fair. The advice on switching to electromobility includes customer-specific analyses of vehicle deployment and charging infrastructure requirements.
