MAN Lion's City in City Buses

MAN Lion's City – a flexible miracle of space for the city

The low floor city bus series MAN Lion's City meets the demanding requirements of urban passenger transport with style. Impressive proof of this is provided not least by the fact that it was named "Bus of the Year 2015". Its modular concept allows MAN to offer different bus models to cover every need in public transport. This allows transport capacity, vehicle length and vehicle concept (number of doors, internal design, low floor, low-entry) as well as different drive types to be combined to meet the customer's specifications. Every model impresses through its great comfort, safety and through its sustainable economy.


The MAN Lion's City bus series is a prime example for sustainable scheduled bus services. The buses easily satisfy the Euro 6 exhaust-gas standard and in Germany also bear the "Blue Angel" eco label with the phrase "protects the ENVIRONMENT and HEALTH". All buses in the MAN Lion's City model range consistently comply with the upper limits specified for the permissible noise level and also satisfy the stringent exhaust gas and fine particulate values for populated areas – regardless of whether the bus has a diesel engine, CNG drive or is powered by hybrid drive technology. MAN thus covers the full spectrum of mature, sustainable and efficient low CO2 emission technologies – for greater eco-friendliness and maximum cost-effectiveness in daily scheduled service.


The MAN Lion's City buses also set new benchmarks when it comes to efficiency and economy. Thanks to the increased passenger capacity and the significantly reduced fuel consumption, the city bus is even more cost-effective. Comprehensive optimisation of the ease of servicing and maintenance reduce the life-cycle costs (LCC) considerably. For instance, it was possible to reduce MAN Lion’s City idle times significantly, cut repair costs and extend the maintenance intervals.


With the wide product range in its Lion's City city bus low-floor bus programme, MAN provides the optimal model for every use: The Lion's City M 10.50 m short solo bus model is the ideal solution for extremely narrow inner city roads with its turning circle of just 18 m. In our classic bus, the MAN Lion's City low floor solo bus, a horizontally installed MAN D20 common rail engine is used. Additionally, MAN offers the Lion's City G and Lion's City GL standard articulated buses. With its impressive length of 18.75 m, the Lion’s City GL can easily transport more than 160 people.
Even more space for passengers and better manoeuvrability in relation to the vehicle length are offered by the two three-axle city buses in the range: the MAN Lion´s City L at a length of 14.70 m and the MAN Lion´s City C, which is one metre shorter. Both of these buses have an active steered third axle.


All models in the low floor bus series impress through their interior concept with an inviting atmosphere and high comfort: ergonomic seats ensure ample legroom, the new glass skylights pleasantly illuminate the interior; in the articulated bus models, a translucent gaiter improves the brightness. At night, the LED lighting provides a pleasant ambiance.
