MAN Lion's City

MAN Lion's City engine

Enormous power. Even more efficiency.

The MAN Lion's City series fully redefines efficiency in scheduled bus services: through their common rail technology, MAN diesel engines combine high efficiency with economical fuel consumption and huge pulling power. At the same time the diesel engines are exceptionally reliable. In conjunction with the four-speed and six-speed automatic transmissions with topography-dependent control unit, optimum driving characteristics and outputs of 184 kW (250 HP) to 265 kW (360 HP) ensure each of the city bus models is an outstanding bus. Our models with six-cylinder natural gas engines (CNG) with 200 kW (272 HP) or 228 kW (310 HP) are also ideal for sustained use in inner cities.

Ideal drive for every road situation

Regardless of whether in winding streets or on steep slopes, the MAN automatic transmissions with a topography-sensitive shift strategy efficiently bring power to the road. MAN offers all models of Lion's City bus series with two different transmission versions. In conjunction with an optimum powertrain configuration, the transmissions improve the already good diesel engine consumption figures.

Rugged and reliable chassis

As standard, all MAN Lion's City models are fitted with a rigid axle as front axle. An anti-roll bar and disc brakes are fitted to the rigid axle. As the driven axle, a MAN-ZF portal axle with differential offset to the left is installed on all MAN Lion's City city buses. The MAN Lion's City C and MAN Lion's City L models furthermore have an actively steered third axle.
