A daily range of up to 800 kilometres: when it comes to the long haul, the new MAN eTGX gives conventional semitrailer tractors a run for their money. Whether a semitrailer tractor or a chassis variant with body, the new Megawatt Charging System gives the electric truck a charging capacity of up to 750 kW. What’s more, 45 minutes of recharging – the length of a typical break time – is enough for around 350 kilometres of range, making it ideal for long-distance travel. And after the work is done, the driver can relax in the cab’s comfortable rest area. With its environmentally friendly and quiet operation, the MAN eTGX brings benefits not only to drivers but also to residents along the route. Inclusive and always on board: the MAN digital services such as MAN eManager and MAN SmartRoute.
The use of an emission-free truck driveline all hinges on the battery. For this reason, the new MAN eTGX contains batteries that were designed specially for use in the new electric truck, right at the MAN site in Nuremberg. In this way, the expertise on one of the most vital technical components of the MAN eTGX remains in-house. Depending on the intended use of the electric truck, various capacities of up to 480 kWh can be selected – this ensures daily ranges of up to 800 kilometres, provided that break/charging times are observed. This is because, with the new megawatt charging at up to 750 kW, it takes approximately 45 minutes to largely recharge the battery packs. By the way: in the future, daily ranges of as much as 1,000 kilometres will be possible – a major advantage for use in long-haul transport.
|Battery packs in the MAN eTGX||Usable battery capacity||Max. range for solo vehicle in distribution transport (0.8 kWh/km)||Max. range for articulated truck in long-haul transport
|Payload of MAN eTruck 1||Recommended use of the MAN eTGX|
|6 battery packs||480 kWh||600 km||400 km||16.3 t||Max. range for long-haul transport|
|5 battery packs||400 kWh||500 km||325 km||17.1 t||Size of range for long-haul transport|
|4 battery packs||320 kWh||400 km||260 km||18.0 t||Typical daily mileage in distribution transport|
|3 battery packs||240 kWh||300 km||195 km||18.8 t||Maximum payload in distribution transport with restricted range|
|6 battery packs||480 kWh||-||400 km||9.5 t||Max. range for long-haul transport|
|5 battery packs||400 kWh||-||325 km||10.3 t||Compromise between payload and range in long-haul or distribution transport|
|4 battery packs||320 kWh||-||260 km||11.2 t||Typical daily mileage in distribution transport|
The battery-specific maintenance intervals depend heavily on the usage profile of the new MAN eTGX. They are therefore calculated and determined individually for each vehicle. Continuous analyses of the battery data help with this. MAN ServiceCare bundles this data into a maintenance plan, which the MAN service outlet will discuss with you proactively.
Average use of the new MAN eTrucks may result in lower maintenance requirements and less wear and tear than with diesel vehicles – but this depends heavily on the individual usage profile.
The high-voltage battery packs account for a significant proportion of the purchase costs of electric trucks. For economic and ecological reasons, it goes without saying that in the case of the most common faults, the battery should be repaired cost-effectively and not replaced completely. Defective cells, faulty components of the battery management system or leaks in the cooling circuit: The teams at our MAN service outlets will be able to rectify these and many other faults in the future. Typical fault patterns, diagnostic software and suitable repair methods are currently being compiled so that they will be ready for use in the service outlets in time for the start of production of the electric truck. In this way, we are taking another step towards a more sustainable future.
The fastening mechanism developed by MAN for the high-voltage battery packs enables the battery packs to be removed quickly to the side. This is usually a time-intensive process, especially for vehicles with bodies – and we all know that time is money! To remove the batteries of the MAN eTGX, apart from disconnecting the peripheral wiring, all that is needed is to loosen the locking screws and pull the battery pack out to the side – a time-saving procedure.
