The new MAN Lion's City Hybrid - consistently efficient in urban traffic
In the new Lion's City Hybrid, MAN is presenting an innovative city bus at the IAA 2010 that will bring greater eco-friendliness and economy to urban mobility.
  • Up to 30 percent lower fuel consumption and CO2 emission
  • Quiet and free of exhaust gases when stationary and when pulling away from bus stops and intersections
  • Significantly more efficient than the most modern conventional diesel-powered city bus, but just as safe and reliable


The Muenchner Verkehrsgesellschaft (MVG) Munich Transportation Company) has put the first MAN Lion's City Hybrid into service.

After years of research and development work followed by intensive testing in laboratories and on the road, MAN is now premiering the new Lion's City Hybrid. The innovative city bus is one of MAN's highlights at the IAA and can be ordered by customers in Europe with immediate effect.

Urban transport is the ideal sphere of operation for buses equipped with serial hybrid drive. Here, solo vehicles of up to 18 tonnes are driven at low average speeds, accelerating no end of times to between 40 and 50 km/h, only to slow down again shortly afterwards for a stop. When they decelerate, conventional buses transform their great kinetic energy to heat: the energy is thus lost. The innovative low-floor bus with serial hybrid drive on the other hand recuperates its braking energy and transforms it into drive energy. With the automatic start-stop system, the Lion's City Hybrid is able to reduce its fuel consumption and emissions even further. After all, city buses spend 25 to 40 percent of their operating time standing at bus stops or red lights.
