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 with just one battery charge.
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.
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.
MAN DigitalServices helps with optimising business processes, reducing fuel and administrative costs, planning and managing service work on the bus, time management, and ongoing driver training.
