One of Norway’s largest bus companies Unibuss has ordered 76 all-electric Lion’s City E buses for Oslo from MAN Truck & Bus. For MAN, this is the first e-bus order from Norway and for all partners it is another important step in sustainable mobility. One of the reasons Unibuss decided on the MAN Lion’s City E was to significantly improve the CO2 balance in public transport. But the issue of flexibility also played an important role for the company. For example, the solo buses are equipped with 5 instead of 6 (standard) battery packs and the articulated buses with 7 instead of 8 (standard) battery packs. More efficiency, but also more range, is also promised by the CO2 air conditioning system, which has been available as an option since mid-2022 – and which Unibuss has opted for. The new air conditioning system for the Lion’s City E is more environmentally friendly and at the same time significantly more efficient, which can provide an additional range of up to 25 km. The safety of passengers, drivers and other road users is ensured by numerous assistance systems such as MAN BirdView, which provides a 360° bird’s eye view of the vehicle’s immediate surroundings, and the MAN OptiView mirror replacement system. The latter supports the driver by, among other things, eliminating the blind spot and significantly improving visibility at night and in poor weather conditions. Since this year, the innovative technology has also been available for all models of the new city bus generation – including the fully electric Lion’s City E.
