MAN Lion's City E is market leader for electric buses.
With a vehicle length of 10.5 metres, the all-electric MAN Lionʼs City 10 E is a compact and extremely manoeuvrable all-rounder. Its compact dimensions, record-breaking turning circle of 17.2 metres and a wheelbase of only 4.4 metres make the latest member of the MAN Lionʼs City E family the ideal solution for narrow roads in urban regular service.
MAN’s modular battery concept offers you the option of flexibly adapting the number of battery packs to your individual needs. You can specifically control the charging time, the number of passengers and the range according to your wishes by opting for more or fewer battery packs: For each additional battery pack, the electric bus gains range – for each pack removed, passenger capacity increases and the charging time shortens.
Whatever you decide: All battery packs can be fully charged in two and a half to five hours.
Depending on the length of your MAN electric bus, a different number of battery packs is available:
Alternative drives are conquering the roads, and the electric variant presents itself as one of the most consistent implementations with 0 % emissions. The engine operates super silently and without producing any local exhaust fumes. This makes a decisive difference to the environment, the city’s image and your passengers – particularly in regard to the long range of the MAN Lion’s City E: up to 350 km . You alone determine the route, because the bus can also travel in zones that are closed to combustion engines.
Electric bus fleets and their advantages for the city.
Consistently reliable ranges of up to 270 km 1) are available with the “Reliable Range” battery usage strategy: With a limited charging stroke, sufficient reserves remain available to ensure the same high range over the entire service life.
If a higher daily range of up to 350 km 1) is requested, the “Maximum Range” battery usage strategy is ideal. The extended charging window provides more energy per charge so that the daily range can be increased depending on the situation. This pays off especially for longer distances, extreme temperatures or diversion routes.
Benefit from our all-round carefree package: We not only supply you with a future-proof electric bus, but also take care of a perfectly matching charging infrastructure solution – whether via cable or pantograph. You receive charging technology that is ideally matched to your vehicle, optionally including installation and maintenance – all from a single source.
A carbon dioxide-based air-conditioning system is optionally available for the MAN Lion’s City E. This new air-conditioning system has several advantages: Climate-neutral carbon dioxide is cheaper than the conventional refrigerant R134a – while protecting the environment. In addition, a CO2 air-conditioning system requires less energy and is therefore more efficient, which can positively influence the range of your electric bus.
With alternative drives, things are moving up: Our batteries are installed on the roof. This frees up space that would otherwise be taken up by the engine tower. This means more capacity for you and greater comfort for your passengers.
How can electric buses be used efficiently and run as economically as possible? What charging options are available and how does recuperation work? In the video you can find out all details about the technology of the MAN Lion’s City E – and also how MAN Transport Solutions can support you with the electrification of your fleet.
Sascha Böhnke, bus tester and specialist journalist for the “Omnibusrevue” magazine, has tested the MAN Lion’s City E. He accompanied the MAN eBus Efficiency Run and explains in the video that a driver with anticipatory driving style can achieve an enormous savings potential thanks to recuperation.
With our electric bus, fleet managers can plan for a range of up to 350 kilometres – which significantly increases the MAN Lion’s City E’s operational flexibility. The decisive factor here is to select between two different battery usage strategies: For a consistently reliable range of 270 km , the “Reliable Range” battery usage strategy is available. The MAN Lion’s City E covers the further distance of up to 350 km with the “Maximum Range” strategy.
During the MAN eBus Efficiency Run, our electric bus has impressively proven that distances over 350 kilometres are possible under good everyday conditions: TÜV SÜD has confirmed: The MAN Lion’s City E covered an impressive distance of 550 kilometres on just one battery charge.
MAN DigitalServices provides support in optimising the business, reducing fuel and administrative costs, planning and managing service work on the bus, in time management as well as in continuous coaching of drivers.
