Engines and Spec
The MAN eTGE boasts a fully electric engine, meaning you are guaranteed a smooth, quiet and environmentally-friendly ride.
Of course, the MAN eTGE requires charging to be able to run. This can be done at a DC charging station, using an AC wall box (which will fully charge it in just five and a half hours) or even using a 23 V socket (which can fully charge it in nine hours).
Installed on the premises of your company or at home, it ensures that your electric van is charged overnight and ready for use in the morning.
In stop-and-go traffic, the MAN eTGE delivers electrical energy back to the battery during each coasting phase thanks to recuperation.
Numerous studies have shown that people driving in urban areas complete a daily average mileage of 37-50 miles (60-80 km); the MAN eTGE effortlessly handles this, achieving a range of 68-71 miles (110-115 km). It is worth noting, however, that this is subject to certain factors (i.e. average speed range, terrain, load, use of auxiliary consumers etc).
The MAN eTGE Luton does not compromise practicality for comfort. The eTGE provides you with generous loading space for your boxes, shelves and equipment. With up to 10.7 m³, it has the same transport capacity as a standard MAN TGE panel van with rear-drive and high roof.
Not only this, but the interior of the MAN eTGE Luton 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, partition wall and ceiling, to precision-fitted shelving systems. Bright LED lighting for the loading bay is also available for the eTGE – as standard.
The MAN eTGE uses a highly efficient, purely electric heating and air conditioning system to maintain comfort during your journey. There is also an option for a heated steering wheel and heated seats to deliver even more comfort whilst driving.
So, if comfort and transport capacity is what you are looking for, the MAN eTGE Luton is a sure choice.
