Far too expensive? On the contrary!

Over a period of four years, the total cost of ownership (TCO) is equivalent to that of the diesel-powered TGE. In the long term, the eTGE may even be the more economical option – thanks to government funding, tax benefits and reduced energy costs.

Deciding factor daily distance

Inner-city traffic is all about short distances: From the workshop to the construction site and back. Delivery runs all over the city. Transporters travelling in inner cities usually only cover short distances. The eTGE is the ideal vehicle for this task. Numerous studies have shown a daily average mileage of 60 - 80 km, which the MAN eTGE handles effortlessly.

According to WLTP, the MAN eTGE achieves a range of 110 to 115 km. This value is based on a driving cycle with predominantly high speeds. Depending on other factors, such as route topography or the use of auxiliary consumers, the range can be increased even further. However, there are certain basics that apply to the MAN eTGE as much as for any other electric vehicle: You should always plan for a reserve, since individual driving styles can significantly influence the range.

Range criteria

New test cycle

The acronym WLTP stands for “Worldwide Light Duty Vehicle Test Procedure”. The new standard for test bench measurements is intended to be valid worldwide. The test conditions for the WLTP are designed in such a way that they reflect real driving conditions as accurately as possible. At the same time, the measurements performed under controlled conditions in the laboratory ensure that it is possible to compare the WLTP data of the vehicles beyond national borders.

No compromises on loading space capacity

The eTGE provides you with generous loading space for your boxes, shelves and equipment. With up to 10.7 3, it has the same loading transport capacity as a standard MAN TGE panel van with rear drive and high roof. First and foremost, however, our eTGE offers you optimal support for your daily transport operations: The interior of the electric transporter is extremely versatile, allowing you to choose from numerous design options – from wooden or universal flooring, tie-down rails and claddings for floor, side walls, separating wall and ceiling, to precision-fitted shelving systems. Bright LED lighting for the loading bay is also available for the eTGE – as standard.

Drive performance comparison

In start-stop inner-city traffic, the eTGE offers you the decisive advantage in terms of performance: The electric engine delivers a torque of 290 Nm from standstill and reaches its full capacity of 100 kW (136 HP) even at low engine speeds. By comparison: The TGE with a 103 kW (140 HP) diesel drive offers you slightly more power in its top range, but you will only benefit from the 340 Nm once the engine is running at full capacity.

How does recuperation work?

Each time the vehicle is coasting, new electricity is generated and the range is thus increased. Recuperation ensures that the kinetic energy of your eTGE is not lost. Instead, it flows back into the battery.

The term recuperation is primarily used for alternative drive systems. It describes the process in which electric vehicles convert kinetic energy back to electric energy.

In contrast to conventional diesel drives where most of the kinetic energy is dissipated during the braking process without being used, electric vehicles exploit this energy to increase their range.

The MAN eTGE has a single recuperation stage when the vehicle is coasting. This means that when the driver removes his foot from the gas pedal and the vehicle is simply rolling, the electric engine functions as an alternator. The wheels transmit the kinetic energy to the electric engine via the driveline, meaning the engine then functions similarly to a dynamo on a bicycle: The car is braked and the recuperated energy is fed into the high-voltage battery. When driving off again or increasing speed, this energy is available to the electric vehicle again.


The MAN eTGE is a reliable partner in city traffic: Whether in the courier or logistics sector, in trade or the service industry – with the MAN eTGE you can effortlessly cope with inner-city traffic emission-free and with low wear.

Delivery logistics
Delivery logistics tailored to the customer. The MAN eTGE has what it takes.

Short trips and frequent stops are a matter of course when it comes to delivery transport. This is where the MAN eTGE reaches its full potential: its electric engine offers you outstanding energy and economic efficiency in inner-city distribution transport. You can also benefit from the high payload with 10.7 m³ of loading space, 24/7 use thanks to the ultra-quiet operation and the ability to drive freely in restricted-access areas.

Do you work more in urban or non-urban areas?

With the MAN eTGE, your transports and deliveries are environmentally friendly, quiet, and economical. The all-electric drive ensures low-wear as well as energy-efficient and particularly quiet operation. On any journey, by day or by night – whether in the city centre or on your routes throughout the region.

The powerful and robust electric engine especially proves its efficiency on routes with numerous intermediate stops or in heavy inner-city traffic and yields the biggest savings. Where diesel vehicles in stop-and-go traffic consume a lot of fuel and severely strain the engine, gearbox and brakes, the MAN eTGE can truly show its strengths: During each coasting phase, recuperation provides you with new electric energy, which is fed to the high-voltage battery of the vehicle.


A compact powerhouse for top performance

At the heart of our MAN eTGE is a highly efficient lithium-ion battery. Despite its compact design and low weight, the high-voltage system boasts a gross storage capacity of roughly 36 kWh. The 264 battery cells of the MAN eTGE are integrated into the vehicle frame below the loading space, where they are optimally protected. This solution not only saves space, but also provides a low centre of gravity and ideal weight distribution.

Maintenance & repair

The eTGE is a true MAN And of course you can also rely on 100% MAN service quality when it comes to maintenance and repair. Specially trained technicians will take care of your MAN eTGE at any of our service centres near you. To ensure that you are always good to go, we offer service and maintenance contracts that are tailored precisely to your mobility requirements. The only thing that will be different is the engine oil change that you are used to from diesel vehicles. Because your eTGE doesn’t need it.

Many parts of a conventional combustion engine are no longer required for electric vehicles due to the alternative drive system. Among these are engine components such as air, fuel and oil filter and the engine cooling system. Other wear parts such as the exhaust system, clutch or manually operated gearbox also no longer exist. The absence of the sliding contacts as they are found in three-phase synchronous engines make the engine wear-free. This alone reduces maintenance costs due to the smaller number of components installed.


The eTGE is a true MAN as you know it: robust, reliable and durable. This is particularly true for its innovative, fully electric drive system. We have compiled a list of answers to the most important customer questions here.

We have a workshop qualified for the eTGE in the vicinity of your area of operation. We promise you that. During vehicle handover, you’ll receive information about an MAN service outlet in your area. There you can find qualified personnel who have been specially trained for the eTGE – they’ll happily provide help and advice, meaning your vehicle can stay on the road around the clock.
According to the WLTP, the MAN eTGE has a range of up to 115 km. However, you should generally plan a sufficient reserve for the range when using an electric vehicle. We particularly recommend the eTGE for areas of application with an average daily distance of around 60 to 80 km. The vehicle is ideally suited for inner-city driving with a lot of stop-and-go traffic. This is where the high energy efficiency of the eTGE can truly unfold its potential.
The MAN AC Wallbox is ideal for charging your MAN eTGE at work or at your home. You can obtain the MAN AC Wallbox from your MAN service outlet. You will require a certified electrician for the installation. Our MAN Transport Solutions experts will be happy to advise you regarding the installation of the right charging infrastructure for your applications. The experts will also help you to operate your MAN eTGE as efficiently and economically as possible. Alternatively, you can also charge the eTGE to 80% using a CCS combo socket with 40 kW in 45 minutes, or simply connect it to a conventional 230 V socket overnight.
Series production of the MAN eTGE has just begun. As a result, it is currently available in our customers’ most frequently required variant: the delivery van (L3H3). With a total weight of 3.5 tons, the maximum vehicle payload is 950 kg. Operation with a trailer is not possible.

No distinction is made between vehicles with internal combustion engines and electric vehicles when it comes to licences. This means that the same prerequisites that apply to transporters with diesel engines also apply to the eTGE.

Licence holders with licence category B can drive the eTGE version with a total permissible weight of 3.5 t.

The MAN eTGE includes the MAN Media Van Navigation infotainment system as standard. The navigation system in the eTGE automatically shows you the closest charging option for your electric vehicle instead of the closest petrol station.

Please note that you will require a special charging card or app, depending on the charging column operator, in order to charge your eTGE. It is therefore sensible to investigate where you can find a suitable charging column in your area before setting off.

The MAN eTGE is already equipped with all the main assistant systems as standard:

  • The Emergency Brake Assist1 warns the driver if the MAN eTGE is approaching an obstacle and the driver doesn’t react or does so too late. If there is an immediate risk of an accident, the system automatically carries out an emergency braking manoeuvre (up to 30 km/h).
  • The Flank Protection Assistant1 provides the driver in the eTGE with a 360° all-round view via the vehicle display and shows any possible collision hazards in the planned lane at speeds up to 30 km/h. In addition, 16 ultrasonic sensors continuously monitor the distance to obstacles around the vehicle. The Flank Protection Assistant uses an acoustic signal to warn the driver as soon as the eTGE moves too close to an obstacle.
  • The active Lane Guard System1 recognises when the vehicle unintentionally leaves the traffic lane. In this case, it keeps the vehicle in the intended lane via regulating counter-steering. The system is automatically activated at speeds above 65 km/h and even functions when there is poor visibility or when it is dark.
  • The Rear-view Camera1 supports the driver when manoeuvring and helps them to avoid collision damage. The 8 inch colour display provides the driver with a full view of the space behind the vehicle when reversing.
  • The Hill Start Assistant1 offers automated support when starting up on inclines to prevent the vehicle from rolling back.
  • The High-beam Assistant1 detects vehicles driving ahead and oncoming vehicles and automatically changes over to low beam before other drivers are blinded.
  • The Driver Drowsiness Assistant1 detects deviations from normal driving behaviour that indicate signs of drowsiness and recommends the driver to take a break by means of an acoustic and visual signal.
  • The Crosswind Assistant1 keeps the MAN eTGE safely on track when crosswinds occur or when the road is inclined on one side.

1Within the limits of the system

Since the electric engine generates far less waste heat than a diesel engine, additional window heating has been integrated in the eTGE. This ensures optimal visibility in all weather conditions and helps to ensure a high range.
