The legislative environment for the UK truck manufacturing industry has never been more challenging, and operators and manufacturers are under increasing pressure to reduce emissions. Yet MAN is unfazed by the challenge:
"MAN is confident that manufacturers and operators will deliver the environmental improvements demanded of us, while maintaining the safe, reliable, time-critical and cost-effective service consumers expect from the modern logistics sector" Thomas Hammerich, MD, MAN Truck & Bus
This CM Special, written using data from fleet operators who filled out a May 2019 survey, will reveal more about some of the alternative fuel technologies that will be part of MAN’s exciting journey towards a truly sustainable future.
We begin by interviewing MAN’s product marketing manager for truck emobility, who gives us his take on how OEMs can meet EU emissions targets.
Then we move onto hydrogen and electric power, and why they’re still not practical for HGV use.
This is followed by a look into gas and biofuels, and the best way to bolster your green credentials.
Finally, we crunch the numbers from the tables and charts which feature throughout this Special, which show some of the headline results from online research completed by 165 fleet operators.
