MAN Truck & Bus is participating in the EU research project ECOCHAMPS. The aim of the project is to further develop hybrid technology in various fields of application.

  • The EU promotes further development of hybrid technology
  • MAN Truck & Bus is participating as a partner for bus applications
  • By Q4 of 2017, a basic hybrid vehicle will be developed for modular applications depending on customer requirements

Under the umbrella of the EU’s "Horizon 2020" project, the ECOCHAMPS project develops hybrid technology for passenger and commercial vehicles. The aim of this consortium, which consists of a total of 26 partners, is to develop an efficient, compact, robust and cost-effective hybrid driveline for the various intended purposes. As one of the partners involved, MAN is constructing a hybrid bus that should be up to 20 percent more efficient in the drive line. "In the city bus segment in particular, we are seeing huge potential for using eMobility applications. However, the Total Cost of Ownership plays an especially significant role for transport operators and carriers," explains Dr. Götz von Esebeck, Head of eMobility at MAN Truck & Bus.
