138 buses and 28 trams from Saarbahn GmbH bring around 43 million people from A to B every year. Around 360 drivers drive to over 1,100 stops in and around the state capital of Saarbrücken every day. Up to 2,100 journeys a day with a distance of more than 22,000 kilometers come together at peak times. In order to be particularly economical and environmentally friendly in the future, Saarbahn has ordered 20 MAN Lion’s City with MAN EfficientHybrid. 18 of the modern city buses were handed over in Saarbrücken at the end of February 2021 two more buses will follow soon.
The 12 and 18 meter long MAN Lion’s City are powered by the new, lighter D1556 LOH engine and meet the Euro 6 emissions standard. The combustion engine is supplemented with MAN EfficientHybrid. Thanks to intelligent energy management, the system helps reduce fuel consumption, pollutant emissions and noise emissions. The standard stop-start function of the MAN EfficientHybrid ensures whisper-quiet and emission-free stopping phases at stops and traffic lights.
In 1892, almost 130 years ago, the company for trams in the Saartal and thus the legal predecessor of today’s Saarbahn was founded. Then as now, the company’s employees and vehicles ensure mobility in the region.
