Tier Mobility, Europe’s largest micro-mobility operator, has taken delivery of 10 new all-electric MAN eTGE vans for its London micro-mobility operation.
The 3.5 tonne eTGE’s, in standard wheelbase format, will be used across Canary Wharf, Ealing, Hammersmith, Fulham, Kensington, Chelsea and Richmond as part of the London e-scooter trial in conjunction with Transport for London (TfL) and local councils.
They will assist with the collection and delivery of scooters, both post and pre customer hire, ensuring the e-scooter fleet is always available for customer use.
Driven by a 136 hp 290 Nm electric motor, the eTGE draws its power from a 36kW lithium-ion battery back.
The eTGE’s batteries are mounted between the vehicles’ chassis rails ensuring optimal weigh distribution, a low centre of gravity and an unimpeded and standardised TGE load space.
It has a top speed limited to 56 mph, and is London congestion (LEZ) charging exempt.
Tier Mobility’s new eTGEs will be serviced and maintained by MAN franchised partners PCL Group at their Maidstone and North London facilities.
Maximilian Djacic, Project Manager Operations Vehicles at Tier Mobility, said: “With the London trial continuing to scale, we are expanding our operations, and our fleet of MAN eTGE all-electric vans is allowing us to do this in a sustainable and efficient way.
“The MAN eTGE is the ideal vehicle for our business. Being 100 per cent electric, its credentials fit perfectly with our company ethos, allowing us to service our e-scooter fleet’s needs in an environmentally and carbon natural way.”
