January 5th, 2023

The eTGE Dropside at a glance

There’s no doubt that eclectic vans are exploding in popularity all over the country. Tradespeople from all walks of life are swapping their old petrol models in for innovative electric variants but why? In short, it’s because these electric vans are the future. Amazing load capacity, brilliant range, and a clear conscious during the commute are just a few reasons why the nation is going green but what does the eTGE Dropside offer you?

When it comes to charging this beast of a van Man really has got you covered. There are three different options for charging the van from AC wall charging at home to DC wall charging in stations. What’s more, after you have charged your new van it’ll last for a very respectable 71 miles. This is incredibly high for a large payload van and will certainly be enough to get you to site and back each day!

Let’s say you do need a quick top-up of juice though. Well, the eTGE has your back on that one too! The new system on board will direct you to the nearest electric charging point so you’ll always have somewhere to recharge.

Engines and Spec

New vans are constantly evolving and technology really doesn’t show any signs of slowing down on its progression towards the perfect emission-free vehicle. The Man eTGE Dropside is just the latest example of how this industry continues to innovate. The van can now transfer the energy lost when the vehicle is coasting back into the electric motor so in essence, it creates its own electricity! Of course, this won’t remove the need to charge it entirely but it’ll certainly improve your mileage!

The real treat for those driving lovers among us is just how powerful these new electric vans are and the TGE is no different. The eTGE Dropside van will produce a staggering 138 bhp which is almost enough to warrant taking it out on the race track!


As you might expect with a modern dropside van the interior of the Man really is impeccable. The cabin is sleek, well-thought-through, and extremely capable. So, you’ll certainly find it comfortable on your morning route to work.

The interior cab has plenty of storage and lockers so you’ll have a place to put all of your tools throughout the day. What’s more these lockers are incredibly secure which means your tools will be as safe as they can be if you ever need to leave them unattended.

Of course, a new electric van wouldn’t be complete without a little taste of technology and with the eTGE you won’t be disappointed! The van comes with a brilliant multifunctional screen which can operate as a media player or navigation system.
