MAN Lion’s City GL CNG

Climate-friendly and economical –
MAN bus named “Bus of the Year 2015”

The MAN Lion’s City GL CNG municipal bus was awarded the “Bus of the Year 2015” title at the IAA Commercial Vehicles 2014 – one of the most coveted trophies in the bus industry. The articulated gas-driven bus wowed the paned of international trade journalists in the “Bus Euro Test.” Its Euro 6 CNG engine offers an extremely low-emission climate-friendly mobility option for city transportation that is also economical.

When filled up with biogas or e-gas, the articulated bus is virtually carbon neutral; offering emission levels comparable to that of fully electric vehicles. Over a period of ten years, an MAN Lion’s City GL CNG saves approximately 15 per cent on the life cycle costs in comparison to a diesel bus from the same model range.

MAN’s position as market leader in this sector is backed up by decades of experience with natural gas buses. Working in partnership with erdgas mobil GmbH, MAN has taken great strides in increasing the number of natural gas buses in operation, as well as ensuring the continued development of the fuel infrastructure for the entire natural gas mobility industry.
