An electric drive produces significantly less waste heat compared with a combustion engine. For this reason, the MAN eTGE uses a highly efficient, purely electric heating and air conditioning system. The heater’s power consumption may still considerably reduce the range of your electric vehicle, especially at lower minus temperatures. We can show you how to use the right strategy to reliably manage your daily routes, e.g. using targeted pre-tempering of your electric van while it is being charged.
The weight of the payload and route’s terrain profile have relatively limited impact on the range of your electric van. Heating operation and high speeds have considerably more influence. Nevertheless, it is important to carry out a detailed analysis of your route network and charging requirements, as this can provide you with helpful information on optimising driving routes and vehicle circuits.
