IAA Transportation 2022: MAN shapes the change
The decarbonisation of freight transport, the digitalisation of logistics and the worsening shortage of truck drivers pose fundamental challenges for transport companies. MAN Truck & Bus will be providing answers to these questions at the IAA Transportation 2022 and shaping the change: in conventional products with even lower consumption, even more workplace attractiveness and comfort for drivers as well as even more innovative digital services; for future CO2-free and intelligently networked transport with the development of autonomous vehicles and the market launch of the purely electric large-series truck from 2024, which MAN will be showing for the first time in Hanover as a trade fair premiere in front of a large audience as a near-series prototype.
With a daily range of up to 800 kilometres and megawatt charging capability, the new eTruck will not only electrify long-distance transport, but with its versatility also all common transport segments covered by diesel trucks today. Its production with conventional trucks on a series production line makes the switch from diesel to electric particularly flexible. Together with comprehensive advice on electromobility and charging infrastructure, MAN thus makes it much easier for transport companies to switch to CO2-free drives.

- New MAN D26 engine and aerodynamics update for a further 4 percent fuel saving with more horsepower and torque
- New Lion S equipment packages for MAN TGX and TGS even more exclusive and driver-oriented
The change towards sustainable, climate-neutral mobility is taking place ever faster, also and especially in the transport industry. That is why MAN is focusing on the three megatrends accompanying the change at this year’s IAA Commercial Vehicles in Hall 12, StandC20: Zero emissions for the CO2-free transport of goods by road, digitalisation for the optimal integration of trucks into transport processes and autonomous driving for more safety and efficiency, a targeted use of the scarce resource of driving personnel and the intelligent climate-friendly combination of different modes of transport. But actively shaping this transformation also means remaining innovative with conventional products. “With even less fuel consumption, an even greater focus on driver needs, and useful digital services such as automatic truck payment at the petrol station, we are simplifying our customers’ day-to-day business. We are making our production more flexible and building our future heavy eTruck on a production line with conventional vehicles, so that we can produce electrified or diesel-powered trucks for our customers, depending on their wishes. Our new eTruck will cover all areas of application when production starts, whether for regional distribution of organic milk or long-distance transport of green steel. We accompany our customers in the changeover to e-mobility as closely as possible based on our many years of expertise in the field of e-buses and e-vans as well as our electric eTGM in distribution transport,” says Alexander Vlaskamp, CEO of MAN Truck & Bus, explaining the manufacturer’s approach on the road to sustainable climate-neutral transport.
