The lifestyle of the human race is changing from the ground up. These days, mobility has to be social, future-looking, ecological and economical. Buses play an important part in helping everyone to tackle the challenges relating to emissions, traffic volume and affordable mobility – whether in city, intercity or long-haul transportation. The vehicles of today also have to be able to meet the mobility requirements of tomorrow. In this regard, MAN Truck & Bus can provide the right solutions for a variety of purposes with its MAN and NEOPLAN buses, and the company will be showcasing a selection at the Busworld Europe 2019 trade fair in Brussels.
MAN Lion’s City: ready for the future of urban transport
The answer to the current questions around urban mobility is the MAN Lion’s City. With its new generation of city buses, MAN can offer efficient and environmentally friendly solutions for urban transport – tailored to the individual needs of every customer and to meet market requirements. At the trade fair in Brussels, MAN will be exhibiting a 12-metre solo version of its all-electric Lion’s City E, which comes with 35 seats. The e-bus completes this new generation of city buses – also available with diesel, natural gas and hybrid propulsion – with its emissions-free drive. Its inimitable design elements highlight the unique quality of the electric drive, which visitors to Busworld can now experience for the first time live in the outside area. The most obvious differences are the absence of the engine tower, the position of the batteries on the roof and the 4 additional seating places that this creates in the rear. In the solo bus, the all-electric driveline can produce an output of between 160 kW and a maximum of 270 kW. As a result, the Lion’s City E can be relied upon to provide a range of 200 km, or up to 270 km in good conditions, across the entire service life of the batteries.
