Volkswagen and Porsche are testing the prototype of the MAN e-Truck. The truck is used in the parts- and car logistics over short distances near the production plants in Leipzig and Zwickau, Germany. The MAN e-Truck has a maximum speed of 85 km/h and it is capable of driving with 40 tons GVW. The battery’s are good for 75 km distance and that should be enough for the testdrives.
Volkswagen and Porsche want to develope elektric transportation and the goal is to have at least one third of all the trucks on elektric traction in the future.
