MAN rolls out zero emission roadmap
The commercial vehicle manufacturer MAN Truck & Bus no longer wants to ignore the technological trend towards CO2-free mobility. The company is entering into several partnerships for the development of electric and hydrogen drives.

Practical testing in cooperation with selected customers is planned for 2023/24. The aim is to test the entire hydrogen ecosystem in transport logistics. Within the framework of a so-called Bavarian fleet, Munich-based MAN would like to test hydrogen for use in long-distance road freight transport in a consortium project together with Bavarian infrastructure operators and freight forwarding partners. Discussions are underway with the Bavarian state government. Cooperation with universities is also planned.

"We take our responsibility to the environment and society very seriously, so MAN Truck & Bus is using a lot of energy to develop alternative drive systems," emphasizes Dr. Frederik Zohm, Executive Board member for Research & Development at MAN Truck & Bus. "Hydrogen can be an interesting solution here, but then the infrastructure needs to be significantly expanded.

With the move, MAN Truck & Bus is not exactly positioning itself as an avant-garde - other companies like Daimler Trucks and Toyota have started developments towards hydrogen already some time ago.
