MAN expands its zero-emission portfolio

Dr Frederik Zohm, Executive Board Member for Research & Development, adds: “The new CO2 regulations at EU level will classify trucks with hydrogen combustion engines as zero-emission vehicles. This means that such vehicles fully contribute to our CO2 fleet targets, which also opens the door for this small series that complements battery electric vehicles.

At the same time, depending on the country, our customers benefit from corresponding toll reductions, for example. At MAN’s Nuremberg site, we have the most innovative engine technology and decades of experience in the use of hydrogen as a fuel. We are utilising this and presenting a real MAN with the MAN hTGX.

The new hydrogen combustion truck is based on the tried-and-tested TG vehicle series and impresses with the highest quality and uncomplicated maintenance. We will continue to research fuel cell technology based on battery technology and hydrogen. H2 fuel technology is also in preparation at MAN. However, it will be several years before the technology is really ready for the market and competitive.”

As with e-mobility, MAN not only emphasises the development and production of innovative and reliable vehicles in line with its “Simplifying Business” claim, but also supports customers with comprehensive service and consulting offers when switching from diesel to zero-emission vehicles.
