  • Successful cooperation since 2005
  • Partnership underscores joint commitment to electromobility and sustainability

Kleinostheim, Germany – UTA Edenred, a leading mobility service provider in Europe and an Edenred company, and Team Hahn Racing are continuing their successful cooperation. In the 2023 season, UTA Edenred will continue to support six-time European Truck Racing Champion Jochen Hahn and his team in the FIA European Truck Racing Championship (ETRC) and in showcasing his new electric racing truck. UTA Edenred has sponsored Jochen Hahn and Team Hahn Racing since 2005.

Richard Röhr, Sales Director Fleet & Mobility DACH at UTA Edenred, says: "Continuing our long-standing partnership with Jochen and his team is a matter of the heart. European Truck Racing Championship races are adrenaline-packed highlights for the international trucking scene. We’re delighted to support Team Hahn Racing and wish them success this season."

Jochen Hahn emphasises the long-term association between Team Hahn Racing and UTA Edenred: "I’m proud of our longstanding and successful partnership with UTA Edenred and pleased it will continue in this season, when we debut our pioneering electric truck.”

IVECO eTruck: a driving force for electric mobility
As part of the sponsorship, UTA Edenred is supporting Jochen Hahn with the demonstration of his new IVECO race truck with electric drive. After the FIA approved eTrucks for their races last year, Team Hahn Racing and IVECO technicians immediately began to develop a prototype. The IVECO eTruck was presented to the public for the first time at the ETRC event in Misano, Italy, in May. At the ETRC race at the Nürburgring on 15/16 July, the truck was once again showcased. In October, the truck will be displayed at the Future Commercial Vehicles Congress in Berlin.

Richard Röhr says: "Sustainability and decarbonisation are defining issues for the transportation and mobility sector. UTA Edenred has bundled products and services under the Move for Good sustainability programme to support customers on their journey toward green mobility. What could be more appropriate than partnering with Team Hahn Racing and promoting the impressive capabilities of Jochen's eTruck?"

Sustainable solutions beyond electromobility
UTA Edenred Move for Good sustainability solutions range from the UTA eCharge electric charging solution and alternative fuels such as biodiesel, LNG, CNG and HVO diesel, to the UTA Carbon Offset CO2 compensation programme, combined transport services and tools for route and tank optimisation. Leveraging such solutions, customers can achieve sustainable, technology-agnostic mobility regardless of the composition of their fleets or the drive systems they use.

Racing driver Jochen Hahn uses alternative fuels, too. Since 2021, he has run a truck on environmentally friendly HVO diesel, setting an example for the wider transportation and mobility industry.
