Success for MAN at Busworld 2015
MAN came away from the world's premier trade fair for buses with awards and a number of new contracts.
MAN can report very positively on this year’s Busworld trade fair, with the company having secured a number of new contracts, mainly on the Belgian and French markets, but also with customers in Germany and in the overseas markets of the Middle East and Asia. Over 100 vehicles were sold in total.
Among the highlights showcased by MAN was the MAN Lion’s Intercity, making its debut trade fair appearance, and equipped with numerous efficiency-increasing features, the Lion’s City attracted the interest of transport operators from all over the world. NEOPLAN’s premium products, designed with their special upgrades, captured the visitors’' attention and also aroused a great deal of interest from experts in the coach tour industry.
The excellent performance of MAN’s vehicles is already evident from the two prizes that were awarded to MAN’s buses at the event: the IBC Comfort Award 2015 for the outstanding levels of comfort offered by the NEOPLAN Tourliner and the ECW Award for the comfortable and ergonomic design of the MAN Lion’s Coach C (100 Years Edition).
MAN presented the Body Builder Award to the Malaysian company Gemilang during the body manufacturers’ evening at Busworld. Gemilang produces bus bodies for MAN's operations in Singapore, Malaysia, New Zealand, Uzbekistan, Australia and Hong Kong, building coaches as well as city buses.
With a comprehensive product portfolio encompassing luxury coaches with bistro upgrades, purpose-developed buses for intercity and intracity transport and also chassis – Man is very well established on the global commercial vehicle market and set to continue its century-long success story into the future.
