Manitou Group and DEUTZ are together embarking upon the electrification of the drive line

Manitou Group and DEUTZ embark on electrification of construction equipment.

DEUTZ has incorporated prototype electric drives into Manitou equipment for the first time. The keys for the first prototypes will be handed over as part of the ELECTRIP Event Week in Cologne in Germany. Manitou Group, the first E-DEUTZ partner, has fitted one of its telehandlers with a hybrid drive and a second with a full-electric drive.

 

It is the first full electric construction telehandler prototype that we realize thanks to DEUTZ, and we are proud to work in this explorative phase.

Michel Denis, President and CEO of Manitou Group
