MAN has announced that it will begin mass production of batteries for electric trucks and buses at its Nuremberg site from 2025 and is giving itself the means to do so with 100 million euros of work planned to convert a factory which was to combustion engines, creating 350 jobs along the way.
The objective is to release 100,000 units per year, with a gradual ramp-up over a period of two and a half years, starting with manual production until the automated lines are put in place.
Hydrogen – Volvo Trucks presents a fuel cell truck with a range of 1,000 km
Batteries are made up of cells distributed in modules and a truck will need up to six of these to cover between 600 and 800 km in one charge. However, the company hopes to reach 1,100 km with new battery technology which it hopes to introduce from 2026.
Supported by Bavaria, which has promised 30 million euros in aid between 2023 and 2027, the project is part of a strategy aimed at making the state an autonomous pole for MAN: the production of batteries in Nuremberg therefore, that of trucks in Munich and R&D in collaboration with local universities and institutes.
