MAN Lion’s Coach – technical data

MAN Lion’s Coach – engine

On the move for longer, with more power and efficiency

With the Lion’s Coach, you are always guaranteed an economical and reliable drive. Its new Euro 6c engines with Common Rail injection deliver an increased torque and more power. In combination with the perfectly tuned gearbox technology and smart assistance systems, they provide the perfect balance between performance and efficiency. In the MAN Lion’s Coach, we have brought together tried-and-tested technology and innovative systems to create a highly reliable vehicle concept. Its main strengths are the increased output with lower fuel consumption as well as the extended service intervals, giving you the benefit of reduced operating costs and optimum vehicle availability.

A new addition to our coach series is the 13-metre version of the Lion’s Coach over two axles. This model offers space for up to 59 passengers and plenty of room for luggage thanks to its above-average storage space spanning 14.3 m³. Now that there is an even wider selection of vehicles, you have even more scope for adapting your fleet to suit your own varying individual requirements when it comes to transportation on regular and long-haul coach journeys.

Our Lion’s Coach engines

There are three different Lion’s Coach engines to choose from, providing the exact drive power required for all areas of application. The six-cylinder engines have a displacement of 12.4 l and can deliver 420, 460 or 500 hp, depending on which option you choose. With 20 hp more than each of the previous versions and a torque increase of 200 Nm, every single new MAN Lion’s Coach is powerful and efficient on the road.

From extreme power to driving dynamics

Whether it is covering long journeys or taking on challenging routes, the Lion’s Coach is as safe as it is economical. Smart gearbox technology ensures that power is converted into dynamics as effectively as possible – no matter what the driving conditions. The MAN TipMatic® automated 12-speed manually operated gearbox offers the choice between fully automatic and manual gearshifts. The automatic system selects the right gear for every driving situation and adapts the engine speed during gear changes. In manual mode, the driver can also select the gear themselves at any time, taking charge of the switching. To ensure that optional equipment is suited to the particular application, there are additional vehicle solutions in the MAN coach series, which come with manually operated and automatic gearboxes with six speeds.

Strong axle design for safety guaranteed

Every coach in the MAN Lion’s Coach series is equipped with a low-friction hypoid drive axle as standard, meaning that you always benefit from an extremely high drive torque and yet incredibly little wear with each of our long-haul coaches. In combination with the multi-arm independent wheel suspension with front-wheel stabiliser, the Lion’s Coach takes on any route with high levels of safety and reliability. The MAN Lion’s Coach C and MAN Lion’s Coach L three-axle models are also fitted with a steered trailing axle. The strain on the axle can easily be relieved briefly if required to deliver optimum traction when pulling away on a slippery road. Further components of the chassis also play an important part in ensuring maximum safety and extremely high levels of driving comfort, with the most notable example being the air suspension with large-capacity bellows and electronically controlled air suspension (ECAS).

MAN efficiency systems

Proactive driving with our system by your side

Our MAN EfficientCruise® GPS-controlled cruise control helps you keep an eye on the road ahead – up to three kilometres ahead to be precise. Through smooth and consumption-oriented intervention in the gear selection, the cruise control eliminates interruptions in traction and also secures maximum fuel savings. Thanks to its innovative MAN EfficientRoll technology, the cruise control can now even control the vehicle’s rolling function using the GPS forecast. Even when on a slight downward gradient, the gearbox automatically shifts to the neutral position ‘N’ – but only where fuel consumption can actually be reduced. Now that it has the latest efficiency systems on board, the Lion’s Coach is more comfortable and environmentally friendly out on the road than ever.

Spot on for improved visibility and accident safety

For the first time ever, there is the option to procure the new Lion’s Coach with the front headlights and rear lights featuring only LEDs. The high-beam and low-beam headlights are now around 50% brighter and have an extended range. The new full LED lights help reduce operating costs and improve the active safety of your Lion’s Coach.

Optimum safety for all passengers was the motivation behind our development of the vehicle skeleton in line with the new ECE-R66.02 safety guidelines. Thanks to MAN’s patented ‘pipe-in-pipe’ technology, the new skeleton structure can absorb over 50% more overturn force than before. The additional inner pipes near the B-column and at the rear boost the stability of the roll bars. What’s more, the torsion-proof skeleton features built-in fire and smoke detection systems. Plus, it’s even easier and safer to escape in the event of an emergency as the new Lion’s Coach now has larger glass roof hatches.
