MAN Lion’s City E: Our electric city bus


At a glance

  • Range over 350 kilometres with a single battery charge possible
    With the MAN Lion’s City E, a range of up to 350 kilometres is possible, depending on the battery usage strategy. In the eBus Efficiency Run, our electric bus even managed 550 kilometres.
  • Additional energy with every braking process
    Thanks to an anticipatory driving style, the MAN Lion’s City E achieves outstanding efficiency. In addition, the range is extended by recovering energy during each braking process.
  • Show us your road – we show you a safe bus model
    The all-electric city bus in three available lengths allows a high degree of operational flexibility. Assistance systems such as the optionally available MAN OptiView mirror replacement system can contribute to increased safety.

Award winning


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.

Precise fit for almost every driving situation

The MAN Lion’s City E is more than enduring – it is also flexible. Our electric bus is available in three sizes to meet a wide range of operational requirements: the smallest variant – 10 metres in length – benefits from a tight turning circle for curvy routes, while the 12-metre version impresses with an ideal balance of ride comfort and agility. Our 18-metre electric bus, in turn, offers space for even more passengers – important on highly frequented routes. Of course, every model is optionally available with the innovative MAN OptiView mirror replacement system and many other selectable assistance systems – that means greater safety for driver, passengers and other road users.
