The VIP seat

The driver’s workplace: comfortable, functional and well thought-out

Driver’s seat

The driver’s workplace – comfortable and ergonomic

There are two configurable variants for the driver’s workplace: the classic one from the MAN Lion’s Intercity and MAN’s own fully VDV-compliant driver’s workplace of the new MAN Lion’s City Generation. With the latter, the lower part can be adjusted together with the steering wheel according to the driver’s wishes. In both variants, the slightly elevated seating position ensures that the driver meets the passenger at eye level and offers excellent all-round visibility. Instruments, switches and displays at the VDV driver’s workplace are arranged in three zones according to the frequency of use. Thus, the driver’s workplace convinces with high functionality and aesthetics – for the benefit of the driver.
