MAN battery technology: clean performance for maximum everyday use
With a total battery capacity of 480 kWh (Solobus) or 640 kWh (articulated bus), the MAN Lion’s City E is extremely powerful. Thanks to our future-oriented lithium-ion battery technology (NMC) and our ReliableRange user strategy, our fully-electric city bus ensures a reliable operating range for the entire lifespan of the battery.
The modular battery system of the MAN Lion’s City is made up of six or eight battery modules – each with 30 cellular modules – and is fully installed in the roof. Placing the battery module away from the crash area increases the safety of the driver and passengers, and makes vehicle maintenance much easier. Because the battery modules are located in the roof, you are also able to benefit from an increase in seating capacity by four seats, and a sense of added spaciousness.
Our smart depot charging concept allows you to optimally use the service life of your vehicle. Fully charge the batteries of your MAN Lion’s City E in under three hours (Solobus) or four hours (articulated bus). Another advantage: Easy integration into existing operations eliminates the need for setting up charging infrastructure along the route. This saves time and money, and increases the versatility of your electric bus.
