MAN celebrates the successful rollout of its electric trucks with the delivery of 100 models to Jack Perrenot

MAN’s electrification is well underway. Its EV range opened for sales last October, since then, nearly 2,000 orders and inquiries have poured in. Now, the company celebrates a huge win with the delivery of 100 electric trucks to Jack Perrenot.

Jacky Perrenot is France’s premier supermarket freight carrier. The 100 trucks are a huge step towards fleet electrification in the country, as such a major industry player goes electric.

Friedrich Baumann, MAN’s Executive Board Member for Sales, commented:

“We are continuing to gain momentum when it comes to electromobility. Our eTruck is very well received by our customers. The start of sales has exceeded our expectations.”

MAN’s recent expansion of its electric truck portfolio further fuels this success. Now, the company offers over a million customisable configurations to cater to diverse commercial needs.

In Austria, MAN has clinched two significant tenders for electric trucks, solidifying the EV’s position in municipal fleets. These contracts involve twelve municipal companies, promising a steady demand for EVs over the coming years.

This paves the way for large-scale manufacturing starting in 2025 at MAN’s Munich plant. With significant orders to deliver, MAN’s electrification journey is going from strength to strength.

MAN aims to electrify half of all new trucks delivered in Europe by 2030. The rapid success of its EV range is very telling as to the state of the industry. Electric haulage has become a major talking point, with new charging hubs fro Milence, new charging companies from Scania, and megaWatt charging just around the corner. It’s an exciting time to be in the electric truck business.
