Four days, tight urban area, steeply rising roads: The MAN Lion’s City E mastered every challenge in test operation, convincing the fleet managers and drivers of LINZ AG LINIEN. With the MAN Lion’s City EfficientHybrid, the company is already relying on clean and efficient solutions from MAN for urban transport. The aim is to identify further future-proof, environmentally friendly solutions for public transport as early as possible. The electric drive plays an important role here. The all-electric MAN city bus was presented for the first time in the Alpine Republic at the Federal Conference of Austrian Bus and Coach Companies last year. The MAN Lion’s City E celebrated its road premiere in Austria in mid-May 2020 and for four days in Linz showed what it is capable of.

The city bus impressed the fleet managers of LINZ AG LINIEN especially on the gradients. Thanks to the ergonomically designed driver’s workplace, which scores points for its high level of functionality and well thought-out arrangement of the controls, drivers can concentrate fully on the road traffic. But driving dynamics and acceleration combined with a smooth driving style also speak for themselves. In the solo bus with a length of 12 metres, the fully electric drive train delivers 160 kW to a maximum of 240 kW. The energy for this comes from the modular batteries with 480 kWh installed capacity. The Lion’s City E thus reliably achieves a range of 200 km over the entire service life of the batteries, and under favourable conditions it can even reach 270 km. In the 12-meter version, the Lion’s City E can accommodate up to 88 passengers.

In addition to the delivery of two-axle solo buses with a length of 12 metres and three-axle articulated buses with a length of 18 metres, the order also includes a full-service contract and a director’s workshop contract. Technical support will be provided by the MAN Truck & Bus Center Ansfelden. Delivery of the total of 88 MAN Lion’s City has begun. By 2024, all vehicles are to be in operation and will bring residents and visitors to Linz safely and comfortably to their destination.

The city buses are powered by ultramodern Euro 6d engines with the latest MAN EfficientHybrid technology. The system makes a significant contribution to reducing fuel consumption and emissions and thus to improving air quality in city centres.
