The transition to e-mobility is not without its challenges. New factors have to be taken into account for efficient and future-proof planning, e.g. the influence of topography, local climate and auxiliary consumers on range or possible charging times and the need for charging infrastructure. At MAN Transport Solutions, we know these factors and have specialised in working with you to develop a customised solution for you. We are also happy to advise you on making your transition to e-mobility as simple, plannable and successful as possible.
A successful transformation to e-mobility requires careful planning and implementation. Our 100-strong team of experts at MAN Transport Solutions is on hand to help you transition to a sustainable electric fleet and will support you at every step of the way, from initial consultation through to full fleet conversion. The heart of this concept is the MAN 360° e-mobility consultation, which is perfectly tailored to complement other familiar MAN services, such as the financing consultation. In the four steps outlined below, we get you ready to enter the world of e-mobility.
Initial tailored analysis of the possibilities for electrifying your fleet based on example routes and general conditions.
Detailed analysis of your entire network and development of an e-mobility evaluation strategy.
Development of a charging solution for your electric fleet in close cooperation with our partners.
Cost optimisation through ongoing adjustments, taking into account all relevant changes in your transport network.
From range analysis to charging infrastructure concepts and specialist training, together we will steer your fleet towards e-mobility.

From costs and funding options to charging infrastructure and energy plans, here you will find answers to some of the most common questions.
MAN offers a wide range of electric vehicles, such as electric trucks, buses and vans. These have all been specially developed to meet a wide range of requirements, from a comfortable ride for passengers to efficient goods transport.
The higher procurements costs of an electric truck are offset by cheaper energy prices compared to diesel. Savings on congestion charges, carbon tax, service costs and potential rebates through new energy levies such as the greenhouse gas reduction quota (GHG quota) should also be factored in. Depending on the circumstances, TCO parity can be reached in as little as 4 years. We would be pleased to calculate your TCO for you (TCO calculator), as well as the target freight rate with a MAN eTruck.
Yes, because when purchasing an electric truck, it is necessary to plan the use of the vehicle and the appropriate charging infrastructure 1–2 years in advance in order to ensure efficient operation and the lowest possible investment costs. If your requirements are more complex, the 360° consultation concept from MAN Transport Solutions is available as an enhancement to the basic consultation.
That depends on your needs. With your own charging infrastructure, you will be able to adapt charging times and capacities to the needs of your fleet and will not be reliant on public charging stations. In the long term, you can reduce costs because charging at your own charging station – including in combination with photovoltaic systems – is often cheaper than at public charging stations due to lower energy prices.
