After its parent company Volkswagen launched e-Crafter, electric version of its Crafter van, which is already reaching customers, also its daughter company MAN launched electric version of TGE van, which shares DNA with the e-Crafter.

MAN eTGE, as it is called, is the light commercial vehicle with a permitted total weight of 3.5 or 4.25 tonnes and a maximum load of 950 to 1,700 kilograms. Similar as e-Crafter it is equipped with a 100-kilowatt electric motor (producing maximum torque of 290 Newton metres) that can accelerate the vehicle to up to the maximum permitted speed of 90 km/h, and consumes around 20 kWh of electric power per 100 kilometers.

A 36 kWh battery under the cargo space floor enables a range of up to 160 kilometres and it can be charged back up to 80 per cent in 45 minutes on 40kW charging station. Slow charging on the household socket takes about 5.5 hours. MAN also claims that with proper maintenance batery only loses about 15 percent of capacity after ten years and around 2,000 charging cycles.

In the initial phase MAN eTGE will be available mostly for fleet customers and in standard wheelbase and high roof version. It will cost around 69,500 euro.
