The German football record champion and UEFA Champions League winner 2020 FC Bayern Munich has announced an electric new addition to its vehicle fleet. From now on, a MAN eTGE will roll through the Bavarian metropolis locally emission-free. It is the first electric commercial vehicle for the club.
Göran Nyberg, Executive Board Member for Sales & Customer Solutions at MAN Truck & Bus, was very much looking forward to this appointment. He personally brought the MAN eTGE, which is covered in the colours of FC Bayern Munich, to his new owner in Säbener Straße in Munich. “We are proud to hand over our successful electric model to the most successful German football club. FC Bayern is thus opening a new chapter in its mobility and contributing to improving the air quality in the city by replacing an identical vehicle with a combustion engine,” says Göran Nyberg. The players and managers of FC Bayern Munich already drive mainly purely electric cars. However, they have not yet had an electric commercial vehicle in their fleet.
With the MAN eTGE Combi, the German men’s football record champion will move personnel or equipment within Munich on match days of the 1st Bundesliga. In everyday life, the 100 % battery-electric vehicle is also used on inner-city tours, and rotates, for example, between the club headquarters, the junior training center and the Allianz Arena. Andreas Jung, Chief Marketing Officer at FC Bayern Munich: “FC Bayern stands for the responsible handling of the environment and mobility. Together with MAN, we want to drive forward the transformation of mobility by integrating new propulsion forms into everyday working life.”
The MAN eTGE Kombi is exactly the right playing partner for FC Bayern’s purpose. Designed for urban traffic, it transports up to 8 passengers as well as luggage and goods quietly and environmentally friendly into the goal – sorry… to the destination.
