MAN hands over first electric truck to Porsche The electric MAN eTGM is now on the road in Germany for the first time. In the future, Porsche Group Logistics will test the MAN eTGM under everyday conditions in order to gain experience with electric commercial vehicles. The two-axle semitrailer tractor will take over the transportation of components – including for the electric Porsche Taycan in the Stuttgart region. More electric trucks will be delivered to various customers in 2019, with serial production at MAN due to start in 2021. Together with its brands, TRATON is thus shaping the transformation of logistics as it moves toward more sustainability.
