MAN Lion's City

MAN Lion’s City has proven efficiency

MAN Lion’s City has a reduction in fuel consumption of 10.2%

Low floor city bus MAN Lion’s City is persuasive in comparative measurements

Really how economical is the MAN Lion’s City (Euro 6)? What do the technical developments provide to increase efficiency? We have done the test – in real use, with city bus drivers at the wheel. The comparison model: The MAN Lion’s City EEV year of construction 2012. The test was conducted under the supervision of TÜV Südbayern over an 8 kilometre long city course in Munich and a synthetic SORT 1 / 2 cycle (Standardized On Road Test, a standardized procedure in Europe for measuring the fuel consumption of city buses).

Measurement of fuel consumption under real conditions

All test trips were undertaken with the air conditioning system switched on. In so doing, the Euro 6 vehicle drove on the SORT 1 / 2 cycle with an increase in consumption of 8 % compared with the MAN Lion’s City EEV. In mixed traffic on the Munich circuit, the result of technical innovations for reducing fuel consumption was even clearer: The Euro 6 vehicle consumed a good 11.4% less than its EEV predecessor. The saving in typical European inner city traffic was therefore a persuasive 10.2%.
