A new era begins

Year 2000 and at the IAA the Auwärter family announces to a startled public that their company is to be taken over by MAN Nutzfahrzeuge. The EU competition authorities are in no rush to announce their decision on the deal, however, and Neoplan's workforce and customers have to wait through several months of uncertainty. However, final approval is forthcoming in June 2001: Neoplan is integrated into the NEOMAN BUS Group as the premium brand alongside MAN Bus GmbH. The manufacturer of commercial vehicles with headquarters in Munich and the omnibus builder from Stuttgart are old acquaintances. The two companies have maintained close supply relations for some years. The reliability and economy of the MAN engines and drive technology and the innovative strength of the Neoplan brand are perfect complements: the merger into MAN Nutzfahrzeuge and rigorous utilisation of the synergies engendered in this way ensure the survival of the Neoplan brand.

Now under new management, Neoplan is not long in delivering innovative developments in bus technology well up to the familiar high standard of quality. The Tourliner is introduced in 2003 and Neoplan is right on target. The new model offers great economy and total reliability, plus a compellingly attractive price/performance ratio. As successor to the legendary Euroliner and the Jetliner, it is an all-rounder and a peerless combination of aesthetics and cost-efficiency.

At the 2004 IAA in Hanover Neoplan presents the new Starliner. Its sensational "sharp cut" design is a highlight of the show. The biggest curved windscreen ever to be seen in a bus, the forward-inclined window columns and the smooth transition from the side windows to the roof give the Starliner its unmistakeable character. The comprehensive safety package includes the new development ACC (Adaptive Cruise Control), plus LGS (Lane Guard System) and Comfort Drive Suspension (CDS), rounding off the advanced overall concept and demonstrating once again that Neoplan remains a key player in the industry as a whole.
