MAN’s Lion’s City CNG bus, an environment-friendly vehicle that has been tested on the UAE roads, was the highlight of the sustainable solutions showcased by the premier industrial player in transport-related engineering at a event last month in Milan, Italy.
The Lion’s City bus range, which was presented at the 61st UITP (International Association of Public Transport) World Congress and Exhibition, offers fuel-saving and environment-friendly mobility solutions for urban traffic, tailored to individual customer and market requirements.
In the Middle East, MAN conducted trials of a Lion’s City CNG bus for eight months in 2011, with the vehicle operating along with regular diesel-powered buses to achieve a direct comparison. The trials proved that CNG (compressed natural gas) technology was a sustainable alternative to diesel while complying with worldwide safety standards and emissions as low as Euro 6. The Lion’s City range is available in a flexible portfolio, including low-entry and low-floor designs, solo and articulated buses.
