23.10.2019

In all, 21 buses/coaches from various manufacturers all over the world were judged by the jury, consisting of international experts as well as experts from transport companies and bus companies. The jury chose its winners from 10 categories. In the “Safety” city bus category, the MAN Lion’s City G made all the running, which sets new standards thanks to its redeveloped E18 gas engine, MAN EfficientHybrid and sophisticated safety concept.

“In particular, what was convincing was the innovative, consistent overall concept of our city bus as well as the many thought-through details, which make the MAN Lion’s City as safe as possible,” according to Jan Aichinger, Head of Product Marketing Bus. In addition to numerous passive features, the active assistants are also impressive. For instance, the city bus features an active turning assistance system with pedestrian detection. “Front and side cameras automatically monitor the traffic, especially in blind spots, thus making a highly effective contribution to accident prevention,” explains Jan Aichinger. The driver is warned visually and acoustically of dangerous situations and collisions in the front area and when turning.
