Redefining the meaning of technology: The new MAN Lion’s City
Developed with customers, for customers.
The new generation of the MAN Lion’s City introduces a completely new design of city bus to the urban environment, based on its tried and tested predecessors from MAN. During the development of the completely redesigned driver’s workplace, we worked hand-in-hand with our customers.
In order to deliver future-proof vehicles in MAN quality, we take our time during development.
The new MAN Lion's City is the result of seven years of development. This may sound like a lot, but not when it comes to developing the perfect city bus. Overall, we passed quite a few milestones during development.
18 prototypes, five constant runners, eight field test vehicles and 20 launch vehicles were built throughout the development process. All that to ensure that you can enjoy tried and tested MAN quality and many years of driving pleasure.
Long-standing experience that pays off
MAN has been active in the city bus sector for many years and uses its long-standing experience to develop top quality and innovative vehicles. The new MAN Lion’s City is the perfect example of this, especially when it comes to the modular structure and range of available models. We can offer the perfect concept and vehicle configuration for every application and requirement.
1million test cycles
Top quality through quantity
The new MAN Lion’s City comes with a new door system, specially developed by MAN. Various tests, including temperature level tests and corrosion tests of individual components and road tests in Spain, Sweden and Austria, provided helpful insights to support the development process.
MAN EfficientHybrid (automatic start-stop system)
The new MAN Lion’s City is optionally available with MAN EfficientHybrid, an intelligent energy management system. The main component is a robust and wear-free electric motor which is installed in the driveline between the engine and the gearbox.
During coasting or braking operation, the crankcase starter alternator functions as a generator (dynamo) and conversely as a starter motor as well. This means you save more fuel and drive in greater comfort.
