English   The new MAN Lion's City Hybrid - consistently efficient in urban traffic *
27.10.2010 von admin

Intelligent energy management keeps the driver continually informed of the system's charge status and its readiness for operation. The driver workplace developed by MAN, as well as the VDV dashboard which will be available as series equipment at a later date, have a central display showing all the data needed for efficient, stress-free and economical operation. These include instruments showing the charge status, the current degree of energy recuperation and general diagnostic information. The only difference to the conventional city bus with regard to the hardware is an emergency cut-off switch, whose installation is required by Directive 2001/85/EU on buses. MAN offers special introductory courses and training for MAN Lion's City Hybrid drivers so that they can fully utilise the energy advantages of the vehicle in day-to-day operation.

One of the first prototypes of the MAN Lion's City Hybrid was tested as early as 2001 on regular bus routes in Nuremberg, followed by practical operation in Paris and Spain. As of today, the MAN Lion's City Hybrid has done more than 100,000 kilometres. To produce exact data, conventional vehicles of similar performance and the same payload operated a reference service. The results showed savings of up to 30 percent in when operating on real bus routes. Moreover, the MAN Lion's City Hybrid had to pass the entire program of tests and trials that all MAN commercial vehicles have to pass in order to obtain series approval.

The new MAN Lion?s City Hybrid with its innovative EfficiencyDesign was presented at the UITP Congress at Vienna in June 2009 for the first time.
