MAN AT BUSWORLD 2015
MAN will be represented with its comprehensive bus expertise at this year’s "Busworld 2015" trade fair in Kortrijk, Belgium. Whether it is a luxury coach with a bistro upgrade or an application-optimised city bus and intercity bus - individuality, innovation and interactivity are reflected in the MAN product range, featuring a wealth of innovations. The key topics will be fuel efficiency and safety.
Over the past three years, the Lion’s City has been consistently product optimised, in order to offer customers the best possible quality and maximum benefit, according to MAN. The key measures implemented: weigh optimisation, improved serviceability, greater passenger capacity as well as significantly lower fuel consumption. Particular attention has been paid to efficiency and optimisation of fuel consumption. In addition to various weight-reducing measures and Euro 6 exhaust technology, there are also features such as Idle Shutdown and the new automatic transmission software for ZF EcoLife Step 3 as well as a new two-stage air compressor. Another highlight at the fair is MAN's new city bus doors, a robust and maintenance-free solution for tough everyday conditions.
In addition to efficiency-boosting measures, MAN has also comprehensively enhanced its city bus portfolio in terms of driver comfort. For example, MAN is one of the first manufacturers of city buses to offer the new ISRI NTS2 generation of driver's seats as standard, with MAN placing particular emphasis on comfort and ergonomics in the cockpit, the driver's workplace. Key features of this are the lumbar support, the 3D adjustable seat and seat air conditioning.
The MAN Lion’s Intercity is being exhibited at an international bus fair for the first time in Kortrijk. It is tailored specifically for long-distance use, or as a shuttle bus, as well as for use as a robust school bus, and combines first class convenience with great functionality and superior safety along with top MAN quality. The concept behind the low TCO: consistent lightweight construction. Also, sophisticated aerodynamics and great ease of maintenance and repair contribute to the low operating costs.
In Kortrijk, MAN will also be presenting highlights from its Bus Modification Center (BMC) for buses and coaches, which meets special customer requirements when it comes to giving the final finish to their buses. The Neoplan Cityliner has an individual lounge interior designed by the BMC, which supports communication on the road. This includes a special light and sound system, specifically designed for this coach.
The Neoplan Skyliner double-decker coach combines two functions in a single vehicle: On the lower deck, there is a bistro where passengers can socialise, with a spacious L-shaped, fully equipped galley, eightteen Exclussivo-Plus seats and two face-to-face double seat seating groups with height-adjustable tables.
