Hybrid, gas or all-electric? The drive concepts that best optimise your bus fleet can only be clarified using highly detailed analyses of the specific application. The range required for each bus line is a decisive factor when compiling an ideally suited fleet mix, especially if all-electric vehicles are included.
The MAN Lion’s City E can travel for up to 270 km without needing to be charged. However, you will also need to take other factors into account for reliable statements on possible applications and efficiency.
For example, electric buses are the most economical, with average speeds of between 14 and 18 km/h. Factors such as the number of starting and braking operations, the number of passengers or the topography of your lines also affect the range. The heating can significantly reduce the daily possible travel distance of the electric bus, especially in sub-zero temperatures.
