MAN opens hybrid research centre

MAN Truck & Bus is consolidating all its R&D activities in the field of hybrid technology in a newly created Centre of Competence.

Bernd Maierhofer, director of research and development and purchasing, said: “We are convinced that hybrid technology will play a fundamental role in the future of all commercial-vehicle segments, from the city bus to the long-haul truck, in the continued increase of efficiency and conservation of resources, thus smoothing the path to E-mobility.

“The new Centre of Competence will concentrate on hybrid technology from research right up to series production in the various product segments.”
